Spice Mix:

  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

  1. Mix spices together and toast in a dry pan until the aromas are released (careful not to burn).

  1. Coat the chicken with the lemon juice, chilli sauce and some of your spice mixture. Add a bit of salt and pepper, if you fancy.
  2. Meanwhile, sweat the onion and garlic in 1 tsp of the the coconut oil/butter on a low heat until the onion becomes translucent.
