Chicken with tomatoes and honey - comfort food with a twist, ready in under an hour!

Yields 6


  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon powdered ginger
  • 2 x 800ml cans diced tomatoes, 1 can drained
  • 1.5 kg chicken thighs, trimmed and chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • fresh chopped parsley, to serve


  1. Melt butter over medium-high heat until bubbling.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until soft, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the cinnamon, ginger and tomatoes stir to combine. Cook for about 5 minutes until fragrant.
  5. Add the chicken pieces, stir well then cover and cook over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove chicken from the sauce, keep warm (in the oven, covered with tin foil).
  7. Turn up the heat on the sauce to reduce it until sizzling - the tomatoes will start to caramelize a little - stirring constantly so the sauce does not stick and burn.
  8. Stir in the honey and lemon zest return the chicken to the sauce and heat through.
  9. Serve over warm couscous and top with the parsley.
