  • Chicken Breast – 2
  • Salt – ⅓ Tsp
  • Black Peppers – ⅓ Tsp
  • Garlic Powder – ½ Tsp
  • Soya Sauce – 2 Tsp
  • Vinegar – 1 Tsp
  • Grated Garlic – 1 Tsp
  • Honey – 1 Tbsp
  • Parsley/Cilantro for Garnish


  • Cut the chicken breast into slices.
  • Season with salt, peppers, and garlic powder.
  • Mix well.
  • Now in a pan, add oil and butter and let it heat for few seconds as it becomes bubbly then,
  • place chicken breast and fry from both sides until it turned to golden brown color.
  • Now in the same pan, add grated garlic and saute for few minutes until it gets aromatic.
  • Now add vinegar and soya sauce.
  • Mix well.
  • Now add honey and quickly stir to prepare a thick sauce.
  • Mix the chicken pieces with sauce.
  • Cover and simmer for 10 minutes on low heat.
  • After 10 minutes, sprinkle parsley!
  • Honey Garlic Chicken is ready to serve.


  • Cook the chicken breast on high flame so it gets a nice mark with golden brown color.
  • Carefully add salt, as the soya sauce itself has a salty flavor.
  • If you are using a light version of soya sauce then add 2 Tsp otherwise 1 or ½ tsp will be enough for dark soya sauce. 
  • The addition of white pepper will make it tastier but this is optional. 
  • You can also use cornflour if the sauce is not thick.
