 Easy Sticky Chicken

So I’m going to treat you to my version of Easy Sticky Chicken, slimming style 🙂

I know I know another chicken dish!! I can’t help it – I love it and chicken is so lean and versatile. 

Honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic and ginger – so so good!

The ginger and garlic really make it for me 

Sticky and sweet with a hint of warmth from the ginger. This is is a balanced blend of all those lovely flavours with a really sticky texture 

Sweet & Sticky – just look at it  

 

 

The Ingredients for Sticky Chicken 

It’s a really simple recipe and it’s really wonderful

No fancy pants stuff here, just Easy Peasy lemon squeezy 

 

Marinading your Sticky Chicken Dish 

This is such an easy recipes, simply toss all your marinade ingredients together

Add your chicken, stir really well cover and pop in the fridge to marinade for minimum 30 minutes 

If you have longer then marinade for longer – the flavour only improves 

 

 

Into the pan – yum yum 

It will look a little watery at this stage, but as it cooks it will reduce and at the end be golden and sticky 

Be CAREFUL here as you will see it go very brown and super sticky – remove it from the heat at that point else it will burn.

(It’s the honey that does this) 


 



Winner Winner Chicken Dinner 

And the finished article after 20 minutes in the pan

Beautiful & golden – sticky, sweet and delicious 

 

 

What to serve with your Sticky Chicken 

Simply serve with boiled rice maybe? 

I also love it with tender stem broccoli and asparagus, which I pop in a pan with Fry Light and a tablespoon of water (lid on) 

I also guess it would be great with noodles too? And maybe spring onions and mushrooms in the noodles? Yum!

I also eat the sticky chicken cold and chopped in salads, it really is so good. Sticky and so full of flavour, borimngh salads are banished 🙂 

 

The Deets 

Everything is free except the honey 

If you want to count the Syns for SW  – honey is 2.5 per Tablespoon – so that’s 5 for the whole dish

= 2.5 per portion as this serves 2 

So let me know how you get on and I’d love it if you dropped a comment below this post

Instructions

  • Grab yourself a medium sized bowl and add your grated fresh ginger, grated garlic, honey, balsamic vinegar, light soy sauce and your salt and pepper, mix well with a spoon
  • Next tip in your chicken cubes into the mix and stir really well so all of your chicken is coated in the lovely marinade. Cover and pop in the fridge for 30 minutes minimum. Longer if you have the time
  • Remove your chicken from the fridge and spray a large frying pan with Fry light and tip  the entire bowl full of chicken loveliness into the frying pan
