100 Happy Days – Day 26 (Marinated Chicken)

Marinated chicken with roasted vegetables and rice

I fancied trying something a bit different for dinner tonight and thought I’d try out marinading some chicken pieces. There was a lot of different recipes online that use BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, lemon juice, etc, which is all rather confusing. In the end I found a recipe which used what I had in the cupboard and hoped for the best! I was a bit apprehensive at first since the mix of ingredients was rather weird, but it ended up turning out quite nice, and the roasted vegetables and rice complimented it rather well😀

Ingredients:
For the marinade:
 45g tomato ketchup
 30ml soy sauce
 15g golden syrup
 15ml lemon juice
 15ml sunflower oil
 Tiny bit of Worcestershire sauce

For the rest of the meal:
 Chicken breast cubed (or drumsticks, wings, etc)
 Sliced vegetable pieces
Method:
 1. Mix the ingredients for the marinade and mix well with the chicken
 2. Leave in the fridge for at least a few hours
 3. After waiting a few hours, preheat the oven to 200°C and put the chicken in 
 4. Slice the vegetables you want to use, brush with oil and place in the oven
 5. Boil the rice
 6. After about 10 mins, move the veg and chicken around in their roasting tin
 7. After another 10-15 minutes, check to see if the chicken and veg are cooked
 8. Serve!
