Recipe: Sweet & spicy chicken

Sweet & spicy chicken

Chicken is so easy to cook on a weeknight but I’m always looking for new ways to take it up a notch. This was a total experiment that my boyfriend deemed successful (aka he ate every last bit on his plate) so I figured I’d share it with all of you, too! If you’re looking for an insanely easy/quick weeknight meal that’s full of flavour, give this a try. I paired it with green beans, drizzled in olive oil, parmesan and walnuts, plus a side of mini yellow potatoes.

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

  • 2 breasts of chicken
  • 6 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. cayenne
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • Dash of chili flakes
  • Ground pepper to taste


  1. Coat chicken with olive oil, honey, dijon mustard, cayenne, garlic and chili flakes.
  2. Marinade chicken in this coating for a few hours, if possible. If you’re short on time, simply add chicken to a pan coated with olive oil.
  3. Cook chicken 8-10 minutes, turning often, until fully cooked through.
  4. Serve with your sides and enjoy!
