Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the turmeric, honey, ginger, garlic, lime zest and juice and chili sauce into a bowl, then whisk to combine. Make several deep slashes through the skin and flesh of each chicken breast, then add them to the bowl and stir to coat in the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F Lift the chicken breasts from the marinade and put them, skin side up, in a roasting tin just large enough to hold them in a single layer (any larger and the marinade will burn).
  3. Spoon over 4tbsp of the marinade and roast for 30-35min until the chicken is golden and cooked through. Keep warm.
  4. Put the leftover marinade into a pan with the wine and bring to the boil. Bubble for 10-12min until reduced by half and syrupy. Serve the chicken with the sauce.
