The honey garlic sauce is the star of the show here, and it's just as flavorful as its name suggests! Equal parts sweet, savory, and sour, you'll be licking your plate every chance you get. At the same time, the fatty, juicy chicken slathered in that sauce is impossible to resist. Sticky Honey Garlic Chicken only takes 20 minutes or less, so you'll have to restrain yourself from making these every night once you try them! It's the best kind of sticky situation!


Ingredients

8 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup chicken stock
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
boiled rice, optional, for serving
Optional garnishes:
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes

Directions

Step 1

Set the chicken thighs in a bowl and add in the salt, pepper, and cornflour.

Step 2

Toss the chicken in the cornflour, coating each piece fully.

Step 3

Using a large frying pan or skillet, heat the oil on the stove-top over high heat.

Step 4

Once the oil is heated, add in the chicken thighs, cooking on one side until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Then, flip over and cook on the other side for an additional 2 minutes.

Step 5

Add the butter to the pan and allow it to melt.

Step 6

Add in the garlic and stir together well. To prevent the garlic from burning, reduce the heat to medium.

Step 7

Combine the chicken stock, honey, light soy sauce, and rice vinegar in a bowl, mixing well to create the sauce.

Step 8

Pour the sauce mixture into the pan and increase the heat, bringing the sauce to a boil.

Step 9

Simmer until the sauce thickens and reduces and the chicken is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. A meat thermometer inserted into the chicken should read 165 degrees F.

Step 10

Sprinkle the chopped parsley and chili flakes on top and serve over boiled rice!
