In the mood for something Asian? This is a great recipe if you are not in the mood for cooking. You more or less toss all ingredients together, cook it and wait until the chicken falls apart all by itself. If you have a slow cooker this will be even easier. The taste will vary strongly depending on what honey you use! Not so much chestnut honey in Asia. So if you can get your hands on some real Asian honey thats great – otherwise go for some milder flower honey.


  • 600g chicken breast
  • 0.3 cups light soy sauce
  • 0.25 cups honey
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • small onion
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • spring onions
  • sesame seeds
  • rice


_ combine soy sauce, honey, finely chopped garlic and onion, red pepper flakes, vinegar and sesame oil [sir until honey is dissolved]

_ coat chicken breasts with the mixture

_ place chicken in a large pot – so all pieces touch the bottom

_ cover and cook over medium heat [chicken should not fry but cook]

_ cook until tender [chicken should fall apart easily]

_ take chicken out of the liquid and shred chicken into small pieces [once cold enough to handle]

_ add water and flour to the remaining liquid in the pan

_ bring to a short boil

_ combine chicken and half the sauce [use more if desired]

_ pile chicken atop fresh steamed rice

_ garnish with sliced spring onion and sprinkle with sesame seeds
