I love blogger challenges, especially when they involve cooking and I was recently invited to take part on Geeta’s Chutney Challenge. Geeta’s is a well known brand that produce Indian food and their first ever product was Geeta’s Premium Mango Chutney. I was sent a jar of their chutney and challenge to produce a recipe using it.
I thought hard about the challenge and decided I would try a version of sticky chicken using the chutney as part of the sticky coating on the chicken. This could then be grilled or fried quite easily and hopefully would taste lovely. I was very pleased with the result, it worked very well and was quite tasty. The mango chutney gave it a little bit of Indian flavour that worked really well with the other ingredients.
Sticky Chicken Recipe
- 4 chicken breasts
- Juice from 2 limes, zest from 1 lime
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp runny honey
- 1 tbsp tomato ketcup
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
- 1 tsp mango chutney
- Mix the ingredients together and make into a marinade.
- Marinate the chicken and leave for around 20 minutes
- Cook the chicken either under a grill or in a frying pan, turning frequently until it is cooked though.
I cooked the chicken in a griddle pan which actually worked very well. I served it with rice and salad. This would also be a nice dish to cook on the barbecue in the summer.
