My husband will eat anything...

... which is good of him really - so many men want the same thing over and over (we're talking FOOD here people... oh never mind!)

Cardamom and Honey Glazed Chicken

4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp sherry
1 tsp ground cardamom - I ground my own and the scent was amazing - like lemons mixed with eucalyptus and was almost medicinal, don't be afraid of it, it certainly doesn't taste medicinal :-)
1 tsp ground pepper

Chicken pieces - I used boneless thighs,  but you can use anything
Salt and pepper
Lemon slices

Heat honey and sherry
Add spices and leave to cool.
Add the chicken and roll it around so it is well covered in the marinade
Line a shallow baking tray with baking paper
Slice the lemons and arrange some on the baking paper
Put the chicken pieces on top, and put more lemon slices on top of them.
Tip over any remaining marinade

Season and bake till golden.

The lemon slices caramelise and you eat the lot.

Yum, cardamom and lemon sounds delicious. You are lucky, my husband is fussy!

You're sure about the medicinal part though? Not usually a fan of cardamom. But if I ever cook again I'll give this a whirl.
