Barbecued chicken with molasses and lime

(Serves 6)

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.
