A very simple Asian style sweet and spicy honey chicken recipe. A very easy recipe that can be put together in twenty minutes. Recipe with step by step pictures.

This is Vinodh’s cousin Ashwin’s recipe. This is a very bachelor friendly recipe and has very few ingredients. He gave me this recipe a long time back but I just could not get it done for the camera. Whenever I make this at home, my son kind of advertises to whoever is at home that this fabulous recipe is from his brother. Ashwin anna this, Ashwin anna that……. Ashwin is his favorite cousin. This recipe packs a punch. I like to serve it with fried rice. He is leaving to New Zealand on Monday and I wanted to publish it before he left. So here is the epic honey chicken recipe and bon voyage to the most adorable guy in the family!

Cube the chicken breast and add it to a bowl. Add in the ginger-garlic paste, salt, soy sauce and the red chilli flakes. Soy sauce is salty. So go easy on the salt. We can adjust the seasoning later. If you want a spicy chicken, add more red chilli flakes. Mix everything well. Marinate the chicken for thirty minutes. I marinated the chicken at room temperature. If you are going to marinate for a long time, stash it in the refrigerator.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the green chillies and the white part (oniony part) of the spring onions. Saute for a minute. Add in the marinated chicken along with the juices to the pan. I prefer doing the dish in a wide pan, so the chicken cooks evenly.

Do not add any water. The moisture from the chicken is enough. Saute for about 5-6 minutes until the chicken is cooked and relatively dry. Once the chicken is cooked and dry, add in the honey. Saute for a minute.

Make a corn starch slurry by adding a tablespoon of cornstarch to half a cup of water. Add it to the chicken.

The corn starch slurry will immediately thicken up and form a velvety sauce. If the sauce is very thick, add little water to adjust the consistency. Simmer the honey chicken for a minute.
