Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! This week I have something different to share. I love to experiment with my cooking and whenever I have a day spare or if I’m bored I find myself in the kitchen seeing what I can whip up! I made this last night for dinner and had to share it as it was amazzzzzzing and so easy. Keep reading if you want to try something different this weekend.

To make the marinade:
In a bowl I mixed together the olive oil, lime juice (to your taste), 4 crushed garlic cloves, a handful of chopped coriander, honey, brown sugar and cumin. Make sure to put some of this a side as this also doubles as a dressing. I rubbed the marinade into the chicken breasts and left this in the fridge while I got on with the salsa.

The salsa is probably the trickiest part of the whole meal and that’s only because I can’t cut up mangos and avocado to save my life, if you can then this will be a breeze! Get one mango, one onion and one avocado, chop them up, add the dressing/marinade you put a side and sprinkle some chilli flakes. Keep this in the fridge. 18424865_10154786838903472_421172187_n
I tried to leave the chicken to marinade for as long as possible (if you can leave it over night do!) so I started with the prawns, these are totally optional btw! I’m just the biggest prawn fiend and they tend to end up in every one of my recipes. I fried 2 garlic cloves in some oil in the pan and added a bag of prawns, as they cooked I added some more chopped coriander, chilli flakes and squeezed some lime juice on them. While the pan was still hot I added the pepper and roasted them until the skin blackened slightly.18425599_10154786838928472_2081802669_nI then waited as long as I could to cook the chicken, I placed the breasts (chicken, not mine) into the pan and drizzled the marinade on top. (If it’s too watery spoon some out the pan) The chicken should start to brown (don’t worry if it looks burnt/chargrilled this is just the sugar and honey!) Once this is cooked cut the chicken into strips.
