Glazed-chicken-pieces-2-webA quick to plate brunch and the kids love. 


1kg (2.2lb) chicken nibbles (bites)
1/4 teaspoon fine ground sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons raw honey


In a bowl season the chicken nibbles with salt and pepper. In a small metal bowl sitting in some warm water mix together the oil, thyme, vinegar, honey, lemon juice and basil until its quite fluid. 

Pour over the seasoned chicken nibbles and turn the chicken in the bowl until the nibbles are evenly coated. Cover the bowl and let it marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Over night is even better. 

Remove from the fridge 20 minutes before you want to cook and let the chicken come to room temperature. While the chicken is warming up get your BBQ started on a medium high heat. 

Once the bbq grill is up to temp cook chicken for about 15 minutes, basting with sauce and turning chicken halfway through cooking. Continue barbecuing, without basting, until brown all over and cooked through. Reheat reserved sauce to serve with the chicken. 

I serve this with sweet potato chips cooked on the bbq and a fresh seasonal salad.

    I’m on the SCD diet and balsamic vinegar in not allowed, is there something else I can use as a substitute?

    Is the BBQ sauce the left over sauce from the marinade, or are you using a different brand?
