Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Servings 3


  • 6 skinless chicken thighs deboned
  • 3 fat garlic cloves smashed
  • 1- inch piece of ginger smashed
  • 3 tbsps chilli paste
  • 2 tbsps honey
  • 3 tbsps light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsps oil


  • Rub the chicken with 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 smashed clove of garlic. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
  • Heat oil in a pan till very hot. Put in 3 chicken thighs at a time and cook for a minute on each side till the thighs are lightly browned and seared. Remove on a plate and fry all the thighs in a similar way.
  • Once all the chicken is seared, put them back in the pan or in a slow cooker.
  • Whisk together the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, chilli paste and honey in a bowl, making sure they are well combined.
  • Pour this mixture over the chicken pieces and cook on low heat for about 30-40 minutes with the lid on. It will take longer in a slow cooker - 60 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat when the chicken is tender and the sauce has reduced to a sticky, glaze-like consistency.
