Quick Honey Garlic Chicken

Another very quick recipe today. Gone are the days where I would spend ages in the kitchen, nowadays it’s 15 or 30 minutes meals all the way, or of course a good old slow cooker meal. Either way, minimal effort. Today’s dish took 15 minutes, it’s tasty, filling and you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen.

This recipe is for 2 people, so if you are cooking for more you will need to adjust the measurements.

  • 1 chicken breast cubed
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • Chilli flakes to taste (I like it spicy)

Start by mixing the cornstarch with a pinch of salt and some pepper. Use this to cover the chicken, make sure every cube is coated in it. This will make the chicken crispier and make sure the inside is still soft and juicy.

Shallow fry the chicken in some oil until the outside is golden and the chicken is cooked.

While the chicken is cooking mix your soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, and chilli flakes in a jug. Pour this over the chicken stir so everything is covered and let it simmer for a few minutes until the chicken is flavoured by the sauce.

Serve it with some rice and garnish with whatever you like. Today I used chilli flakes and sesame seeds, but spring onions is always a nice addition.
