Sticky lime ginger chicken and Donna Hay

I’ve always wondered how miss Donna Hay can turn out new books in the rate that she does. Of course; she has a whole team of professionals around her that – no doubt – do an amazing job as well but still.. it must be pretty hard work most of the time. If I think about the time it takes me to create a recipe, cook it, photograph it and than write about it.. Imaging doing that book after book after book. And yet, I have almost all books of Donna. I just love them. Every single one of them (ok, I’m sure there is an exception somewhere in there too)

So you guessed it; this simple yet flavoursome dish is from one of the latest and is definitely worth making. It has ginger, it has chicken, it has lemon and it is sticky. What more can a girl want? From the book Modern Classics
