READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Pinaygourmet 345142

To ensure the chicken is nicely chargrilled on the outside, and moist and tender on the inside, preheat the grill pan until hot, then reduce the heat to medium as you add the chicken. From Cosmopolitan.

The marinade is excellent! I would prefer to add a bit of heat to the salsa in the form of some minced jalapenos.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, honey and chili flakes in a shallow dish, add the whole chicken breasts, cover and marinate for as long as possible.
  2. Cook the chicken in a preheated ridged grill pan for 8 minutes on each side, until charred and cooked through. Wrap in foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix all the salsa ingredients together and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to infuse. Strain the marinade juices into a small saucepan and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat but keep warm.
  4. Serve the chicken with the couscous tossed with diced tomato and top with the salsa and the marinade sauce.
