Spicy Chilli & Honey Chicken

This is definitely not for people that don’t like spicy.

Chicken breasts – I usually allow 125 g per person – cut the into cubes

Onion – cut in half and slice thinly

1 large hot green chilli – chopped into very small pieces

1 large red chilli – chopped into very small pieces

If you wear contact lenses can I suggest you wear disposable gloves when chopping chillies there is nothing more painful than rubbing your eyes when you have chilli on your hands and you wear lenses

Salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes

Tomatoe puree

6 cloves of garlic – finely chopped but not pureed

2 tablespoons of clear honey

squirt of pomegranate syrup if you like it and can get it

Put some olive oil in a deep frying pan – add the onions and the chillis to cook until the onions go slightly clear.

Add the chicken and keep stirring until the chicken is looking almost cooked – add the salt & pepper and pepper flakes (cayenne will do if you don’t have the flakes) a squirt of pomegrante syrup if you want it and the garlic. Add 2 teaspoons of tomatoe puree and some hot water to the pan – just enough to cover the contents. Move onto a low heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

I usually use this time to cook some rice and prepare a salad to go with it – garlic bread goes well too.

After 15 minutes increase the heat and keep stirring it whilst it boils and starts to reduce the liquid down -once you have as much sauce left as you want add the 2 tablespoons of honey and give it a good stir……………… cook it for another couple of minutes and serve.

i love this – the combination of the chilli, honey and garlic is deliscious but not for people who don’t do spicy.
