Honey Ginger Chicken

By: Sharlene Tan

Honey Ginger Chicken

You can prepare this dish ahead of time by deep-frying the chicken until it’s half-cooked. Keep it in the freezer and when ready to cook, thaw out chicken, fry completely until golden and mix with sauce.

Prep and Cooking Time 1 hour and 50 minutes


1 whole chicken,
      cut into serving pieces
all-purpose flour for dredging

For the marinade
1/3 cup rice wine
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

For the sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
3 teaspoons shredded ginger
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
chopped spring onions for garnish


Mix together ingredients for marinade in a bowl.

Put in chicken and mix until all the pieces are coated with the marinade. Set aside for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

3  After 1 hour, heat enough oil in pan to deep fry chicken pieces.

4  Coat each piece of chicken in flour before frying.

Drain excess oil in paper towels.

6  Make the sauce: Mix together all ingredients for the sauce in a wok and boil until thick and syrupy.

Toss in chicken pieces in the sauce until well-coated.

8  Garnish with chopped spring onions. Serve immediately.

    Cooked this for my family last night, it was an instant success. They loved it! They had suggestions of doing it with pork or maybe adding fried tofu. Today i am set to try Soy braised chicken. This looks very doable. Thanks for making my life simpler.

    followed the' not what i expected...too gingery and sour for my taste. wonder what went wrong. although i used local lemon (calamansi) instead of real lemon juice. did that somehow affect the taste?
