Rub the minced garlic on the chicken thighs with your hands in a mixing bowl.
Add honey, soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper to the chicken. Stir well to combine.
Transfer the chicken and all the mixture to a baking tray lined with aluminium foil.
Cover the chicken with aluminium foil to prevent burning.
Bake the chicken for 20-30 minutes or until fully cooked.
While the chicken is cooking, prepare the salad.
In a clean mixing or salad bowl, put ½ the packet of the leafy green mix in.
Chop the tomato and cucumber finely, place in mixing bowl.

Remove the chicken from the oven and garnish with chopped parsley.
Cut the chicken into approx. 1cm thick pieces or leave as a whole piece.
