There is nothing tastier that our Mumma’s Chicken Nibbles – For many years, Lynda (our mum) made her famous Honey chicken nibbles for family dinners. We knew as soon as we got home from school that she was cooking them because the smell just instantly hit our spot of happiness and excitement.
This honey chicken marinade is delicious, they were sweet and sticky, they are mouth-watering and always left us fighting over who got to take the leftovers to school the next day.
However, we were never allowed to know this special honey chicken marinade! Mum kept it top secret from us all and would say ‘If I tell ya ill have to kill ya’. Even once we all moved out, she still would not let go of this secret recipe.
Last month for International Women’s Day something special happened… Lynda shared the sticky honey chicken recipe with us! We went over to Lynda’s home to capture her making these, and we got to put them to the test. We all can confirm… they are as tasty as they look!
So here we have it, Lynda’s Top Secret Honey Chicken Nibble Recipe – exclusively for you!
