We recently came across this recipe online at M&S and tried it out at the weekend, one word; delicious!! It’s really easy to make and can be made in around 40 minutes. The glaze creates a lovely sticky coating for the chicken and although the recipe uses chicken thighs, it would work equally well with breasts, wings or drumsticks. You may wish to experiment with other meats as well. The thighs we used were from M&S and were boneless and skinless, making them hassle free.
