Honey Sticky Chicken on Rice

If you love chicken you’ll love sticky chicken on rice. 




5 Tbsp Earthbound Apple Cider Honeygar
2 Tbsp peanut oil
1 Tbsp soy
2 small chili, finely chopped
12 chicken wings or 6 thighs
Extra peanut oil for frying the chicken
Sesame seeds for garnish

Ingredients for Green Rice

2 cups basmati rice
3 Spring onion, finely sliced
2 Tbsp peanut oil
Small bunch of herbs – parsley, mint, coriander, finely chopped


Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl, then add the chicken and leave to marinade for 20 mins or longer if you have the time.

In a heavy frying pan over a medium heat add a splash of peanut oil.

Put the chicken wings into the frying pan but retain the marinade for later.

Cook the chicken on one side till golden then turn over. Cover the chicken with a piece of baking or greaseproof paper and sit a saucepan on top of the paper.

The pan should be big enough to cover all the chicken underneath the paper.

This helps it to cook through and also pushes more of the chicken surface onto the pan making it browner.

Follow the instruction to cook your rice as you would normally.

Once cooked, add the chopped herbs and peanut oil and stir through. Season with salt or a little soy sauce. 

Once the chicken is brown on both sides and cooked through, about 10 mins for wings, add the reserved marinade and 1/4 cup of water to the pan and allow it to cook for a few minutes.

Take the chicken wings along with a healthy serving of sauce and serve over the rice. Top with a sprinkling of sesame seeds
