Citrus honey chicken wraps.

Honey citrus wrap

Honey citrus wrap

The weather this week has been really odd. Everything from rain coming down in stair rods to blazing hot and humid. Planning what to eat with Uni girl, a teenager and a husband on a diet is a nightmare. Popping on the bbq usually satisfies everyone but this week’s weather has put a spanner in the works.

I had planned to use this marinade to slather over some chicken kebabs or turkey steaks on the bbq but sadly not. A griddle pan is an adequate substitute, albeit without the sun on your back as you grill.

I served up the citrus honey chicken in wraps and everyone could then customise the dish as they wished. No tomatoes, extra mayo, no leaves (salad!), griddles peppers and onion etc etc. You get the picture.

Honey citrus chicken wraps

500g chicken thighs or turkey breast pieces.

zest and juice of half an orange

zest and juice of half a lemon

zest and juice of a lime

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp olive oil

plenty of salt and pepper.

wraps and fixings of your choice.

How to…

Combine all the marinade ingredients together. BEFORE you add the chicken or turkey taste the marinade and adjust the seasoning.

Place cubes of the meat into the marinade and leave for 30 minutes.

Either pop on skewers and grill on the BBQ or if the weather is really vile griddle on a griddle pan or almost dry frying pan. The marinade will caramelise beautifully and taste something like marmalade.

Slide into a wrap and dress as you wish.

Watch BBC weather and weep!
