Honey Chilly Chicken

Thanks everybody for the lovely comments for my previous post Szechuan Style Vegetable Hakka Noodles.... This Honey Chicken I tried from Finla's place goes very well with Noodles and Fried Rice. We all loved this chicken especially my 6 yr old fussy eater....I hope all of you will also like this mildly sweet chicken...Thank you Finla for this lovely recipe...

Honey Chilly Chicken

Recipe Source~ Finla (Happy Cook’s) My Kitchen Treasures

Chicken breast 500 gm
Salt and pepper
Oil for deep frying
Few spring onions sliced
1 tbsp ginger finely cut
1 tbsp garlic finely cut
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp corn flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chinese chilly sauce ( more if you like it hot)
Few green chillies sliced ( optional)
2 to 3 tbsp soy sauce ( add according to your taste, not too much as the dish might be too salty)


  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces.
  • Coat chicken pieces lightly with flour which has been seasoned with salt and pepper
  • Deep fry the chicken in batches.
  • Now heat a wok add 2 tbsp oil and sauté the onions, ginger, garlic and chillies, for few minutes.
  • Add honey, stir for one minute. Add combined corn flour, water, chilly sauce and soy sauce. Stir until sauce boils and thickens.
  • Add chicken, toss in sauce for three minutes or until chicken is heated through.
  • Add few more sliced spring onions and serve with Noodles or fried rice or even with chapathi.

Note: For a healthier version of this dish omit deep frying the chicken, instead stir fry chicken in a non-stick pan with very little amount of oil.
