Easy and Sticky Honey Garlic Chicken made simple and fast, with an amazing Honey and Garlic sauce that tastes so good!

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken thighs, bone in or out, with or without skin

  • Salt and pepper, to season

  • 2 tsp garlic powder, to season

  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

  • ⅓ cup honey

  • ¼ cup water (or chicken broth)

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Directions

  • Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
  • Heat a pan or skillet over medium high heat; sear chicken thigh fillets on both sides until golden and cooked through.
  • FOR BONE IN THIGHS:
  • Reduce heat after searing on both sides, cover skillet with a lid and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, while turning every 5 minutes until done.
  • Drain most of the excess oil from the pan, leaving about 2 tablespoons of pan juiced for added flavour.
  • FOR SAUCE:
  • When chicken is done and cooked through, arrange chicken skin-side up in the pan (if cooking with skin); add the garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  • Add the honey, water, and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thicken slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Garnish with parsley and serve over vegetables, rice, pasta or with a salad. Enjoy

Notes

  • *For chicken breasts: use 3 breasts, sliced horizontally in half. Sear breast fillets on each side until golden and cooked through (about 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your fillets). Continue directions from the sauce, onwards.
  • **For oven baked, bone-in thighs: Preheat oven at 400°F or 200°C. Sear chicken in an oven proof skillet or pan, skin side down first for 3 minutes. Flip and sear for a further 3 minutes until browned each side. Then bake in the oven for a further 20-25 minutes, until completely cooked through and no longer pink inside. Continue directions from the sauce, onwards.
