crispy honey soy chicken


  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup tamari or all purpose soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 garlic clove, freshly minced
  • Juice of 1 lime



  • 600g chicken thigh or breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ¼ cup corn flour
  • Oil for shallow frying (see note 1)
  • 2 spring onions, cut into 2cm batons
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • Rice or noodles to serve


  1. Combine the sauce ingredients (corn flour, chicken stock, tamari or all purpose soy sauce, honey, minced garlic and lime juice) in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place the chicken in a large bowl, add the corn flour and toss to coat.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chicken in batches for 3-4 minutes until golden. Set aside on a paper towel to drain. 
  4. Wipe the pan clean and add the prepared sauce to the same pan. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally until slightly thickened. Add ⅔ cup of water. Cook for a further 2 minutes before returning the chicken to the pan along with the spring onions. 
  5. Toss the chicken in the sauce so that it is evenly coated and glossy. 
  6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately on a bed of rice or noodles.

Note 1 – Olive oil was used in this recipe. If a neutral flavour is preferred, canola or vegetable oil can be used.
