Even though I’ve shared my fair share of vegetable variates, I don’t usually share recipes for cooking meat. (Apart from this Meatballs in Smokey BBQ sauce recipe… ;)) I really want to change this, as it’s so easy to marinate and roast e.g. chicken to perfection! You can put it in the oven right away, or let the meat marinate for a few hours to get that extra intense flavour.

So, what inspired me to cook this dish? Once again: Masterchef Australia. There was this episode where Nigella Lawson marinated chicken in, I believe, lime, chilli and tequila. And I wanted to recreate that! Minus the tequila. I’ll try adding booze to my recipes some other time.
