How to make Honey Garlic Chicken

Spend 30 minutes in your kitchen to make six portions of delicious Honey Garlic  Chicken based on the recipe written below.


  • Six pieces of chicken thighs, with bones and with no skin
  • Salt and pepper as the seasoning
  • Two teaspoons of garlic powder
  • Six cloves or crushed garlic
  • 65 ml of honey
  • 50 ml water or you may also use chicken broth
  • 30 gr of rice wine vinegar
  • A tablespoon of soy sauce


1The first thing to start is by giving the chicken with seasoning like salt, pepper along with the garlic powder. Season the chicken evenly and then set aside for a while. For the next step, you may continue to prepare for other ingredients in the following step below.

2To continue, prepare a pan, or you may also use a skillet. Then, heat it over medium high heat and fill with the chicken thighs or chicken breasts. Here, you need to make sure that you cook the chicken completely for both sides until the colour turns golden.

For cooking the bone chicken in thighs:

1When you have finished searing both sides of the chicken, then you need to prepare the lid and cover the pan with it. Then, you may continue to cook the chicken until they are completely cooked. Here, you may also turn the chicken every 5 minutes until it is cooked through.

2After the chickens are all done, then you need to drain the chicken. It is used to remove any remaining oil left in the pan. Make sure you don’t remove all of the oil, you need to leave around two tablespoons of the pan juice to use as the additional flavor.

For making the sauce:

1After all of the chicken is done, you can continue to assemble the chicken in the pan with the skin on the side up. After that, you may add the garlic to the pan. Spread it among the chicken evenly. Cook this mixture for around 30 seconds until you can smell fragrant.

2Then, you may add the other ingredients like honey, vinegar, water and soy sauce as well. Next, higher the heat to medium-high and cook the sauce for around 3 to 4 minutes until the sauce is completely cooked or until the texture turns slightly thick.

Now, your Honey Garlic Chicken is about to serve. You just need to transfer the chicken to a serving platter then garnish with chopped parsley on top of it. For a better experience, you may enjoy this along with vegetables or salad, rice or even pasta.
