    Levi Roots' Barbecued chicken fillets with molasses sugar & lime

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus marinading time
    • Cooking time: 7 minutes
    • Total time: 17 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    6 chicken breasts, skin removed
    4 tbsp molasses sugar
    Juice of 4 limes
    3 tbsp olive oil
    Leaves from 3 fresh thyme sprigs
    Salt and pepper

    Method

    1. Put the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper or clingfilm and bash them flat with a rolling pin. If you don’t do this you might find that the outside is cooked and dry while the inside is still raw.

    2. Mix the remaining ingredients in a large, shallow dish and add the chicken. Cover with clingfilm and marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours. 

    3. Lift the chicken out of the marinade, shaking off the excess. Barbecue for 7 minutes in total, turning and basting with the marinade as it cooks. Serve immediately.
