There's nothing quite like a delicious, juicy piece of honey chicken, and this recipe by Malissa Fedele is the perfect way to achieve just that. With a blend of sweet and spicy flavors, this marinade is sure to impress any taste buds.

To start, gather your ingredients. You'll need four chicken thighs, olive oil, salt and black pepper, three spring onions, two chopped red chillies, three cloves of crushed garlic, a handful of thyme, the juice and zest of one lemon, a tablespoon of smokey paprika, and a quarter cup of raw wild honey.

Once you have everything together, simply add it all to a container, cover it up, and shake it well until the chicken is fully coated. You can allow the chicken to marinate for as long as possible. Ideally, overnight is best. This will allow the flavors to really infuse into the meat.

When you're ready to cook the chicken, simply remove it from the marinade and cook it as you desire. You can grill it, bake it, or even cook it in a skillet. The choice is yours. Just be sure that the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165F.

The end result will be tender, flavorful chicken that's perfectly sweet and slightly tangy thanks to the lemon juice and honey. The combination of spices, including the smokey paprika, gives this marinade a richness that will leave you feeling satisfied and pleasantly surprised.
