Barbecued chicken with molasses and lime
6 chicken breasts, skin removed
4tbsp molasses sugar
Juice of 4 limes
3tbsp olive oil
Leaves from 3 fresh thyme sprigs
Salt and pepper
Put the chicken breasts between two sheets of greaseproof paper or clingfilm and bash them flat with a rolling pin.
If you don’t do this you might find that the outside is cooked and dry while the inside is still raw.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a large, shallow dish and add the chicken.
Cover with clingfilm and marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Lift the chicken out of the marinade, shaking off the excess. Barbecue for seven minutes, turning and basting with the marinade as it cooks. Serve immediately.
