    About this recipe: Sounds obvious but this is a quick and easy chicken dish that the whole family will enjoy. The chicken is steamed under the grill so it's really moist every time. Serve with a green salad and rice in the summer, or roasted veg in the winter.

    Serves: 4 

    • 120ml fresh lemon juice
    • 60ml fresh lime juice
    • 60ml vegetable oil
    • 4 chicken breast fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • mixed Italian herbs, to taste (optional)
    • seasoned salt to taste

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, lime juice and oil. Place chicken pieces in the mixture, and marinate at least 1 hour in the fridge (preferably 2 hours).
    2. Fit a roasting tin with a grilling rack. Fill tin with water to just below the level of the rack.
    3. Remove chicken from marinade, arrange on the wire rack, and season with Italian herbs and seasoned salt. Transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan, and bring to the boil.
    4. Grill chicken for 10 minutes, basting frequently with the boiled marinade. Turn chicken, season again with Italian herbs and seasoned salt, and continue grilling and basting 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
