Sticky Lemon Chicken (Gordon Ramsay)

Finger licking good chicken is one dish my family and I love
So when I see Gordon Ramsay has his own version, I gave it a go and everyone enjoyed it :)

Recipe is from HERE inspired by Karen from some flour, sugar n butter
Hers look so appetizing!


I just realized when I saw this picture I have put the lemon slice at the wrong side LOL

 
 
What you need:
(with slight modification from the original recipe)
 
600g chicken (I used 1 free range chicken and cut into parts)
salt and pepper
5 tbsp olive oil
10 cloves of garlic (or 1 head), cut into half for each clove
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves (I skipped cos I didn't have it)
3 tbsp dark soya sauce (I used kecap manis)
4 1/2 tbsp honey
1/2 lemon, sliced
200ml water
2 tbsp dried parsley (I used 1 tsp)
 
Method:
 
Heat heavy base pan with oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper
Cook chicken in the pan for 5 mins, turning once for each piece
Add in garlic, soya sauce, honey. Stir well and make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated. Cook for 5 mins
Add in water, cover and cook for 20 mins. Open up the lid and lay lemon slices on top of the chicken. Cover and cook for another 10mins
Season chicken with parsley, cook for another 5 mins. Serve with rice, lots of it :)
 
Note:
***The modification I made mainly was to meet my family preference. They dislike any dish which is too lemony, hence the short cooking time of the lemon
***I used a lot more water and cook it longer in order to have more sticky sauce. We like slathering it over rice. Yum! :P
