Honey Lemon chicken with soya sauce

I saw this recipe in a local woman’s magazine. Thus I have no link to share.

– Chicken thighs
– Honey
– Lemon juice
– Soya sauce: Dark and light
– Pepper
– Crushed garlic
– Ground garlic and ginger paste
– Make deep cuts in the chicken pieces.
– Mix ginger and garlic with the chicken pieces.
– Marinate chicken in the sauces. I add 4 tbsp of light soya sauce to every tbsp of dark soya sauce. Lemon and honey to my whimsy taste ;p
Leave chicken marinated for at least an hour (overnight will be ideal)
– Heat oven at 220 deg C. Season with ground pepper and crushed garlic cloves.
– Bake for 45mins til chicken is cooked and skin is crispy yummy!


Garlic soup

I came across this recipe when the boys were showing early signs of the flu bug. Since I had all and more ingredients, I quickly got set to work.

Oh I must add a note- my children are anti-soup (except for Princess who enjoys only potato leek soup- recipe coming soon ;)) That does not stop me from making this versatile and v v nutritious dish. Recent discussion in a local parenting forum taught me easier of making soup even without pre-made stock. Just throw in the bones with ingredients! How hassle-free is that! (except for the chopping and dicing ;o)

Back to this recipe, not sure if it had any great impact but I think I managed to prevent the flu bug from spreading with this and other effective natural remedies ;))

– Garlic (roasted or fresh) I also discovered how easily I can make my own garlic butter with roasted garlic!!
– Potatoes
– Carrots
– Leek/ onions (or both ;))
– Celery
– Peppercorns
– Thyme
– Stock
– EVOO/ butter

– Saute leek and potatoes (with fresh garlic) in oil/ butter, until softened.
– Add carrots and stock. Let ingredients simmer. Add the roasted garlic.
– Add pepper and thyme.
– When ingredients are cooked, cool the soup.
– Puree in blender.
