How To Make Honey Garlic Chicken

Coat chicken with corn flour or cornstarch. Lightly coat the chicken and make sure you shake off excess, so you’ll get a beautiful crisp coating on the outside. Shallow fry the lightly floured chicken thighs in corn flour, for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
Now, you will need to add all the ingredients for the sweet honey garlic sauce. First, melt a little butter, and then stir fry garlic. At this stage, you can also add soy sauce, vinegar and honey. Let this sauce simmer for a few minutes until it turns sticky and delicious. Make sure the chicken is cooked through.
And that’s it! Delicious one pan sweet, sticky honey garlic chicken for dinner!
