Honey-glazed chicken recipe



‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ would not have been launched without the precious help and creative sprinkles by my dearest friend, Lilia Larcos. Lilia created the cover and concept for this book with her endless zest and creativity and I thank her immensely. Below is Lilia’s honey-glazed chicken recipe, featured in this e-book, along with a little story. Have a delicious reading! (The squirrel image is a card which Lilia created for me to praise the e-book for making it to kindle’s top 100).
4 chicken fillets
4 tbsp honey
1/3 cup soya sauce
2 carrots cut in small rounds
Mix soya sauce and honey, cover fillets with the mix and toss in the carrots.
Cook in a pre-heated oven at 240°C for 25 minutes. Serve with steamed rice and broccoli. Wash it down with Pinot Noir!
About Lilia
I met Lilia during my most rebellious year on this island, as I was ready to embark on what I hailed ‘a permanent stay’ in Cyprus. With my heart and mind, rooted in the US, it was hopeless for anyone to even try and convince me that there is a bright side to living in Cyprus! And, it was at that odd phase, that Lilia entered my life… A designer in profession and life, this beloved friend proved to me that we can make any setting as beautiful as we wish by splashing our favorite colors all over it! This philosophy, coupled with an incessant stream of creativity, constitutes the life of someone who lives life to the fullest. Lilia will put the same dose of passion into a greeting card she will give to a friend, just as she would do with a vibrant painting she is drawing.
As she always tells me, it’s the little details which matter. And, with this principle, she never ceases to amaze me! Whether making chocolate chip cookies with her beautiful daughters, Natasha and Stephanie, planning a romantic dinner for two with her husband, or, preparing a sophisticated seven-course meal for friends, they all bear a theme, or, better put, a unique ‘L.L.’ signature! Either, to be or, not to be!

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
