Yield: 2 People


  • 2 Chicken Thigh boneless with skin
  • 3 tbsp of Corn Starch
  • 3.5 tbsp of Soy Sauce
  • 2.5 tbsp of Honey
  • 1.5 tbsp of Minced Garlic
  • 0.5 tbsp of Five Spice Powder
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Season the chicken thigh with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Pat dry the chicken with a paper towel and coat the chicken with corn starch on both sides. Shake off any excess corn starch before pan-frying.
  • In a pan, add oil and turn the heat to medium-high. Once the pan is hot, add in the chicken thigh skin side facing down. Pan fry for 7 minutes, skin side facing down, flip, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and set it aside.
  • Mix soy sauce, minced garlic, five-spice powder, and honey in a bowl.
  • Drizzle the sauce into the same pan that the chicken was cooked and simmer for 1 minute.
  • Add back in the chicken and cook the chicken on high heat while drizzling the sauce all over the chicken for 1 minute.


PRO-TIP, after you are done cooking the chicken, use the leftover oil and seasoning to pan-fry your vegetables.
