A few days ago I tried this recipe for the first time and I could not stop eating it,
it was that good! This was my first attempt at something like this and I will definitely try something similar again because the flavors was amazing and it was so easy to make.
Here are the ingredients you will need.
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- ¹⁄³ cup honey
- 2 tbs flour
- 4 tbs light soy sauce
- 1 tbs dried oregano
- A pinch of paprika
- 2 tsp chopped chives or spring onion
- 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
- 3 tbs olive oil
- 4-5 pieces of chicken thighs (if the thighs are very large you might want to double up on the sauce)
Preheat your oven to 350°F – 180°C.
If your chicken thighs are very large slice them in half to reduce the cooking time. Pat them dry with a paper towel so excess moisture is removed and the flour will stick better. Coat in flour and paprika. Set aside.
Place a large oven proof frying pan on high heat with the olive oil. Once oil is starting to heat up, place your chicken thighs and cook until brown on both sides, takes only 1-2 minutes. The chicken does not need to be cooked all the way, it will finish in the oven.
Add the minced garlic followed by the chicken stock, honey and soy sauce. Bring to a simmer and place in oven in the middle and bake for 30 – 40 min depending on your oven.
Remove from oven once cooked, sauce should be reduced and thicker, not too liquid and chicken should look very dark brown on the edges. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped chives / spring onion and serve immediately. Top with the reduced sauce.
