Sticky Honey and Lemon Chicken

This a recipe from Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers. It looked good and thats usually enough of a reason for me...

Sticky Honey and Lemon Chicken
3 Chicken Thighs (skin and bone on)
Juice of one Lemon
2 Cloves of Garlic (crushed)
1-2 Tbsp Honey
1-2 Tbsp Grain Mustard
1 Tbsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Mix the lemon juice, garlic, pepper, honey and mustard in a bowl.
Add the chicken to the mix andensure it is well coated.
Leave for a few hours/overnight to marinate. shake the mix up every so often.

Preheat the oven to 200C.
Place the thighs on a roasting tin and pour over the rest of the marinade
Cook for 40 minutes, turn half way through to ensure its well coated.
Remove from the oven and serve.

Eat and enjoy, prize for person who gets the messiest.

Verdict: sticky, soft chicken and a deliciously messy plate of food, also easy to alter according to preference, more lemon, less honey etc..
