Honey Soy Chicken

I went hunting through my mum’s old recipe book yesterday and found this gem. Modified slightly as I don’t think it needs the sugar or tomato sauce. These are very tasty, and perfect for toddlers to munch on. I would peel the meat off the bone for them and check there are no hard bits of cartilage they could choke on.

Once I made these I used them three ways:

– Fresh out of the oven for Harry’s dinner last night

– A chicken and bean pasta for his lunch today

– Melted cheese and chicken sandwich fingers for a snack tomorrow
