How to make Skinny Chicken

This is a Waitrose Christmas recipe for those who, like me, needs to fit into a bikini this Christmas. A low fat chicken recipe which actually tastes pretty good. I added a drizzle of honey to give it that lil extra flavour and its lovely on a bed of green salad.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Get 4 pieces of baking paper, each piece at least 4 times the size of each chicken breast, and fold each piece of paper in half.

  2. Season each chicken breast and place one in the middle of each sheet, right next to the folded line. Divide the sweet potato and lemon juice equally between the parcels and add two cloves of garlic to each. Sprinkle with the chopped rosemary, a little drizzle of honey, and freshly ground black pepper.

  3. Place two slices of lemon on top of each chicken breast then fold the parchment over to make a parcel, folding the edges to ensure no steam will escape. Place on a baking sheet.

  4. Leave the parcels in the oven for around 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
