Step 1 Place chicken in a sturdy plastic bag then add garlic, lemon juice, honey, olive oil, cumin, paprika and cinnamon. Massage bag to combine ingredients and coat chicken with marinade. Remove air from bag and leave chicken to marinate for at least 15 minutes (refrigerate and marinate for up to 12 hours if desired).

Step 2 Remove chicken from marinade and season with salt and black pepper. Cook on a preheated, lightly-oiled barbecue hotplate or grill or place 5-10cm below a preheated grill for 5-6 minutes each side, or until cooked through (test by cutting through the thickest piece to check there is no pink in the middle). When cooked, transfer to a warm serving dish.
