What you will need

  • 2 x Boneless Chicken Breast (preferably free range & from a local butcher)

  • 1 x minced garlic clove

  • 2 x tsp Tex or Mex rub

  • 1 x Tbsp Olive Oil

  • Juice of ½ a lime

  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Prep: 10 mins (plus marinating time)

Cook: 15 – 25 mins

Serves: 2



1) Add all marinade ingredients to a mixing bowl & stir well to combine into a smooth red paste

2) Place chicken breast in mixing bowl & massage meat so that there is an even coat of marinade all over

3) Leave to marinate for at least 30 mins (overnight for best results)

4) Pre-heat oven to 180 C fan / Gas 200 C

5) Place on roasting tray or dish & loosely cover in tin-foil (this will keep the moisture in)

6) After 10 mins in oven, remove the tin-foil so meat begins to crisp slightly

7) Place in oven for a further 6 – 12 mins (depending on size of breast – ensure cooked through)

8) Leave the chicken to rest for 5 mins before slicing on chopping board & cover in juices from the roasting tray/dish – serve.
