Honey Lemon Chicken with a Sweet Pear and Apple Salad
Serves: 3 (Chicken), 4 (Salad)
Honey Lemon Chicken
  • 1 pound chicken breasts
  • few pinches salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive or peanut oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
Sweet Pear and Apple Salad
  • 1 pear
  • 1 red apple
  • ½ cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup jumbo raisins
  • 5 slices bacon, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 3-4 big handfuls of mixed greens
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Honey Lemon Chicken
  1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the chicken. Saute until almost completely cooked.
  3. Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, ground ginger, and chicken broth in a small bowl, then pour over the chicken. Allow to cook until slightly thickened, then season with salt and pepper to taste, if necessary.
Sweet Pear and Apple Salad
  1. Slice your pear and apple as thinly as possible. Toss with the walnuts and raisins.
  2. Fry the bacon until crisp, then set aside to cool.
  3. When the bacon is cool, toss with the fruit, walnuts, raisins, and mixed greens.
  4. Whisk together the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. Pour over the salad and toss (you probably won't use all of the dressing, so only pour as much as you like over the salad - you can always add more).
