Rockin' Marmite Chicken!

I don't like marmite plain, on toast. But I never thought I would like it as much as I do on chicken. I've come across quite a few marmite chicken recipes online, and all of them have tons of marmite in them. I wasn't sure if I would like that much marmite, especially if I didn't like it to begin with. So I made up my own recipe, and I hope you enjoy it!

2-3 Tbs olive oil
4-5 Tbs of flour
2 tsp minced garlic
1 lb cut up chicken breast
1 tsp marmite
1 tsp honey
1 1/2 Tbs brown sugar
1/3 cup hot water

In a separate bowl combine marmite, brown sugar, honey, and hot water. If you like the taste add two dashes of hot sauce, it adds a little spice to the sweet.

Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat.
Cut up chicken in a bowl (or a zip-lock bag) and coat with flour.
Add 2 tsp of minced garlic and floured chicken to hot skillet. At this point you could add ground pepper if you like.
Cook until chicken is golden brown and just about done.

Turn heat down to medium and add marmite mixture. The liquid will caramelize and reduce. Make sure your chicken is fully cooked, and enjoy!

I now love marmite!


  1. I am definitely going to try this one.

    Now that you like Marmite, you're an honorary English person :P

  2. Woohoo!

    You'll have to let me know how you like it. Or if you added more of certain things.

  3. I've just finished eating it and... I like it :D I'm not sure I did it right though. It didn't look like yours.

    Here's my marmite recipe: toast bread, put marmite on toast :P That's about the extent of my culinary abilities.

  4. Easy and tasty! My bf doesn't like Marmite, so I didn't tell him what was in the chicken tonight. We both thought this dish was real yummy. Thanks Jenny!

  5. That's cool! I'm glad you both liked it.

    Did you tell him afterwards what was in it? Or keeping it a secret so he will always eat it?

  6. I did tell him afterward. He said he doesn't mind because he personally can't taste the marmite. I've made your dish a few times since, it's very good. My family really likes it too. =)
