Honey Soya Chicken

A Chinese inspired chicken starter dish...and isint sweet. Honey just helps coat the chicken pieces better and gives a perfectly caramelised color to the dish.
Its just finger-licking good !!

Whenever I browse recipes in my book, and I come across this recipe..I start craving for it. So as you might have guessed by now, its a regular in my kitchen.

Heres the recipe for you to try...

Serves: 3 - 4 people
Level: Easy

1.25 kg chicken, medium or small pieces pref. with bone
2.5 tblsp soya sauce
2.5 tblsp ketchup
2 tblsp ginger garlic paste
1.25 tblsp honey
1 tblsp green chilly sauce
1 tsp chilly powder
1 tblsp oil

Step 1 - Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients except oil. Mix well. Keep covered for minimum 1 hour.

Step 2 - Take a pan. Pour the oil in the pan, add all the chicken pieces, along with the marinade and let it cook covered for 10 - 15 mins, stirring occassionally. At this stage the chicken will let go of all its water and start cooking. Then when the chicken is almost done, cook it uncovered, till the sauce coats all of the chicken well.

Serve hot.

This dish tastes great with some mashed potatoes/fries and steamed veggies.
And no..I have not forgotten to add salt to the ingredients, your soya sauce will have enough of it. But you can add salt while cooking, if you think it isint enough.

Do let me know how you like it.

Happy cooking!
