  • 500 grams boneless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander, finely chopped

METHOD

  1. In a bowl, mix the juice of 1 lime, mustard, olive oil, crushed garlic, coriander, salt and pepper.
  2. Pour the mixture over the chicken in a shallow dish. Let it sit for at least 20 minutes. You can also marinate it overnight and make it even more flavorful.
  3. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 18-20 minutes. Transfer the chicken on a platter. Set aside while you make the sauce.
  4. Pour the juice (from the chicken) from the baking dish on a heated pan. Add corn flour, honey, lime juice, and salt as necessary. Heat slowly until it thickens, and then pour over the chicken. Enjoy!
