  • 2 teaspoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Cornflour

Instructions

  • Start with heating 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan.
  • Once the pan is really hot, add chicken pieces. Season it with salt and pepper.
  • Stir fry on high heat for 2-3 minutes, until small brown spots appear on chicken. Remove from pan and keep aside.
  • To the same pan add rest of the oil. Add minced garlic. Cook for 30 seconds until aromatic.
  • Lower the heat and to the pan add chicken stock, honey, Fresh lemon juice, soy sauce.
  • Mix cornflour with water and make a slurry. Slowly add to the pan gradually stiring it with a spatula to avoid lumps.
  • Cook the sauce on medium heat for 1-2 minutes. The sauce will start to thicken up and coat the back of the spoon.
  • Add cooked chicken pieces back to the pan and mix until chicken is coated well with the sauce. Check salt and adjust seasoning if needed. Cook for 2 minutes more and it's done.
