This is a very easy to cook chicken dish that is good with steaming hot rice and salad to make it a complete meal.
The preparation is easy and quick, with minimal seasoning.  You can also use chicken wings or any part of the chicken.  I prefer deboned chicken whole legs as it is not too oil compared to chicken wings.
The sweetness of the sauce is acceptable to me and goes well with rice.  You can serve it with freshly sliced tomatoes, zucchini or salad leaves.
I am very satisfied with this honey glazed chicken.  It was so good with a plate of rice and vegetables.  We had this with Watercress Soup. Sure would like to prepare this again soon.

Recipe adapted from my selected cookbook Yum Yum Magazine No. 102 [with slight modifications] for this month's Cookbook Countdown Event #11
3 pieces chicken whole legs - deboned with some skin, fats removed
150 - 200 ml water
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp salt

  1. Combine chicken pieces with marinade.  Mix well and marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat a non-stick wok, pan fry chicken pieces, skin side first until brown and slightly crispy.  Flip over to fry the meat side.
  3. Pour in the marinade, add water.  Bring to rolling boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove cover and braised till sauce is reduced to the consistency preferred.
  5. Dish up, garnish with freshly sliced vegetables.

Kimmy, this seems easy to prepare and it should be very delicious. Anything with honey I like very much.

Hi Krishna, I was glad the chicken turned out nice even though I substitute the chicken wings with whole legs. I find wings oily and not easy to pan fry.

Hi Phong Hong, the lazy bug is still with me... that I have to cook simple dishes these days. Discovered that simple and easy dishes are tasty too. Best part is that you can marinate the meat ahead and cook it anytime you feel like it.
