Cilantro Jalapeno Lemon Roasted Chicken


If you purchase your groceries at Loblaws (Queen and Portland Area); chicken is on sale 1.99/ lbs. This is a great meal prep recipe for a busy week and only take a few hours to make… (overnight if you are patient)


Chicken Marinade

  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • juice, of 1 lemon
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper


  1. In a Ziploc bag, add all the ingredients for the marinade
  2. Add the chicken
  3. Shake the bag, and make sure the chicken is coated
  4. Let it marinate over night for the chicken to soak up all the yummy delicious flavour.
  5. Warm a grill pan or your barbecue.
  6. Cook the chicken through – I use a barbecue and/or grill pan because the honey on the chicken will caramelize
  7. Serve with a light fresh salad. IMG_6612

*** I cooked mine on the grill pan and finished in a preheated oven of 400 F ***
