Using a fork, pierce some holes into the skin and the thick part of chicken.
Rub in 1 tablespoon of honey per 1 piece of chicken thigh. It should look shiny like in this photo.
In a skillet over medium heat, pan-fry the chicken with the skin side first. Pay attention not to scorch the chicken since honey coated chicken can be easily burnt. Once the skin looks golden brown, flip it and fry the other side.
Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid and steam-fry the other side until done. Flip occasionally so you will not burn it.
When the chicken is cooked through, wipe off the excess oil with paper towel. Pour in the mixture of the ☆ ingredients into the skillet.
After the sauce is poured, toss and mix the chicken to let the taste soak in. When the chicken is covered evenly with the sauce, it is done.
Slice the chicken and serve on plate. Add your favorite vegetables on the side.
The rich flavor of chicken really goes well with shredded cabbage!!
Story Behind this Recipe
I substituted the sugar with honey in a Teriyaki chicken recipe and it was delicious! It has a quite appetizing taste.
This chicken has a very rich flavor, so it goes well with a bowl of rice or a piece of bread. It is a perfect dish to make on a busy day since it does not take very long to make it.
