lovely easy recipe. I used lemon juice and left out the peel, (had hassles with that before with family) dinner was late, so I added extra water to the mix and popper it in the oven, and it was great. Very forgiving recipe, and a good one for starter cooks. made for Aussie swap nov 09

  1. In a large, deep frypan over high heat, add oil and chicken. Cook chicken, turning only once, for approximately 5-8 minutes until golden brown. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside. Reducing heat to medium, add onion and cook for 1 minute than add garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Return chicken to pan, add the lemon, chicken stock and honey. Reduce heat to medium-low, place cover on pan and simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Preheat broiler. Increase heat to medium and simmer sauce, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes to thicken. Place chicken under a hot broiler for 3-4 minutes until crisp. Place chicken on serving platter, top with sauce and fresh oregano leaves.
