Number of Servings: 8


    about 1kg chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
    4 cloves garlic (or more, if you wish), crushed
    half a cup of soy sauce
    quarter of a cup of soft brown sugar
    juice of one lemon (about 3 tblsp)
    1 tblsp olive oil
    1 tsp ground ginger


Cut the chicken pieces into two or three pieces each, and place in a large ovenproof dish. (Note it is easiest to cut them when they are not quite thawed, if you use frozen chicken).

Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, and pour over the chicken. Cover the dish, either with a well fitting lid or with aluminium foil.

If you have time, leave it to marinate for a few hours in the fridge, removing about half an hour before cooking. However, this part can be skipped if you're preparing the meal to cook at once.

Heat oven to about 180C (350F), and put the dish in, still covered, for about half an hour. Remove the cover, turn pieces to ensure they stay coated with the marinade, and cook for a further half hour, or until well cooked through.

Serve with rice, or some form of potatoes, and plenty of veg or salad.
