This recipe was adapted from Six Sisters Stuff.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb/ 1kg boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lime marmalade
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp spring onion/ scallion, finely diced, white part only (about 2)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

  1. In a large Pyrex or ceramic bowl, whisk together sweet chili sauce, lime marmalade, soy sauce, lime juice, spring onion, and garlic. Pour mixture over chicken. Stir to coat chicken with marinade. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let marinate in fridge for about at least an hour (and up to 4 hours), turning chicken once, about half way through marinating time.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F/ 220C/ 200C fan-forced. Spray a 9×13″ Pyrex or ceramic baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Remove bowl of marinating chicken from fridge, discard plastic wrap, and pour chicken and marinade into prepared pan. Arrange chicken tenders in a single layer. Spoon marinade over top chicken, to evenly cover.
  4. Bake chicken for a total of 25-30 minutes, or 18-20 minutes for a fan-forced oven, turning over once, half way through cooking time. Chicken will be done when the juices run clear.
  5. Serve chicken while hot.
