Red Honeyed Chicken

Sweet and spicy!

4 chicken drumsticks
4 chicken thighs, trimmed
2 onions, roughly diced
2 tomatoes, quartered
5 cloves garlic - chopped

2 tbsp sambal oelek
2  tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
2 1/2 tbsp honey
Salt, to taste

Marinade for chicken
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
½ tsp coriander powder

Mix together the chicken with all the marinade ingredients and let stand for at least 2 hours.

In a large pot or wok, heat up some oil and fry chicken until just browned. Remove chicken and return wok/pot to medium high heat. Add onions and garlic. Stirfry until fragrant. Add in tomato paste, tomatoes and sambal oelek. Cook until it softens.

Add in the sweet chilli sauce, honey and a few tablespoon of water (if needed). Mix well and add in some salt. Add in the chicken and stir thoroughly to coat with the sauce. Cook for a further 10-15 minutes, check seasoning. Serve with steamed rice.

  1. I notice you copied this recipe from My Kitchen Snippets and I think it is only right that you give her credit.

    1. Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. A student from my Year 8 Food Technology class actually brought this recipe in for me to try, as she wanted me to cook it in class next week.

      I will certainly check the site out. Thanks!
