  • Prepare your ingredients as listed above.
  • To create the marinade for the chicken, mix together the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, olive oil, honey, sesame oil and pepper. Pour over chicken and mix until chicken is evenly coated.
  • Meanwhile as your chicken marinades for a few minutes, in a deep pan or pot set on medium heat, add 1 tbsp of the marinade to your hot pan to act as an oil. Throw in the chopped shallots and fry until soft.
  • Add in chicken along with marinade. Simmer for 15-20 minutes over medium heat and cover with lid.
  • Flip the chicken mid-way through to avoid burning the honey. Remove chicken and allow sauce to thicken and simmer. Serve and enjoy!
