Wow Kate Wow. I loved this. It was wonderful, salty cheese, honey lemon and chicken. It was truly delicious. Even my picky dh enjoyed this dish. It was quick and easy to prepare, perfectly balanced with lovely flavors and textures. This will be going into my favorites cookbook for 2011. Thank you so much for sharing your tasty tasty recipe.
I made this yummy recipe yesterday for my lunch. I looked at 3 different stores and couldn't get the halloumi cheese, so I searched for a cheese that was similar and ended up using Kefalotiri cheese, which is what is used in the wonderful Greek Saganaki appetizer. I also didn't have fresh thyme, so used ground and added a little fresh lemon juice. This was very good and I am sure would be even better with the fresh thyme and right cheese. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Holiday Tag Game.
Thanks for posting katew, I was checking to see if it had been posted as I was intending to post it myself. This has been a favourite dinner party recipe since I saw it on Donna Hay's TV show Fast, Fresh, Simple early last year or the year before. Can't remember how many times I've made this and each time it has been delicious. I always double the sauce ingredients because we always want more. I usually serve it will fig & rocket (arugula) salad as Donna did on her show. Thanks so much for posting my very favourite chicken recipe. Glen
