Garlic, Ginger & Honey Chicken


This month’s deci­sion to choose a recipe from Laven­der and Lovage for Secret Recipe Club was an easy one. When I saw Karen’s Chi­nese Gar­lic, Gin­ger & Honey Chicken, my mind was made. It’s incred­i­bly fast and healthy. We served this atop of some noo­dles and napa cab­bage we picked up at a local mar­ket and it was quite sat­is­fy­ing. We also dou­bled the recipe because it keeps well for lunch left­over. If I were to make it again I would up the spice and maybe add some nuts.

Karen was born in South Africa brought up in rural Eng­land. She was greatly influ­enced by her grand­mother and mother and is  cur­rently writ­ing a cook­book based on her British cui­sine research. Head on over to Laven­der and Lovage to browse her exten­sive recipe col­lec­tion or check out the other SRC posts from this month below.
