Griddled Honey & Orange Chicken with Vegetables

This is a great recipe if you are on a diet as all the food is griddled. The honey is the only sweetness apart from the oranges and in my book, its a natural sweetener so can't be too bad for you - Mother Nature says so!

By using the honey and juices of oranges will give the meat a gorgeous colour and flavour - and sticky too!

Tip:

The secret for well seared meat is to get the griddle really hot and add oil to the food BEFORE putting it on the griddle. Great for when you have a BBQ too
