Top Tips

  • Use a kitchen scissors or knife to chop the chicken. Keep the pieces even in size so they all cook through a the same time.
  • Mind your knuckles on the grater – a handheld grater called a microplane is great for this.
  • If you don’t have a juicer – just prod the inside flesh of lime with a fork and twist – all the juice just runs out.
  • There is no need to add any extra seasoning to this recipe – the soy sauce has some salt so this adds plenty of flavour making sure this is a really healthy dish.
  • Lining the oven tray with tin foil or parchment paper is great – is stops the chicken sticking and makes clean up much quicker.
  • Check the chicken is cooked the whole way through by cutting a piece open. It should be white and not pink or opaque in the middle.
