  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Zest and halve the lemon. Juice half and cut the other half into wedges. 
  • Lay the chicken out on a board and place your hand flat on top. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to vacuum packing used to keep it fresh.

  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • When hot, add the chicken steaks and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook through, 3-6 mins each side (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Soften the Veg
4
  • Return the pan to medium heat with a drizzle of oil if necessary and add the onion.
  • Fry until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins. 
Simmer the Sauce
5
  • Add the honey, mustard, stock powder, 1 tbsp sugar and 50ml water (double both for 4p) to the pan.
  • Stir in lemon zest and lemon juice.
  • Cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens slightly.
  • Add back in the chicken and cook, coating well in the sauce, 2-3 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce if necessary.
