I never knew the dish called ‘Honey Soy Chicken’ until I came to Australia. Honey & Soy flavoured sauce marinated Chicken are available from any supermarkets and butchers in Melbourne. I have never bought them. Commonly they are baked in the oven. If you don’t have an oven, try this frying pan method. As Chicken Wing Nibbles (Flats & Drumettes) can be cooked quickly, frying pan is the easiest method.


4 Servings


1kg Chicken Wing Nibbles (Flats & Drumettes)
Salt & Pepper
Oil for cooking
Toasted Sesame Seeds *OR Ground Chilli, Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix), etc.

1 clove Garlic *grated
1 small piece Ginger *grated
4 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 to 4 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Sake (Rice Wine) OR Water

  1. Lightly season Chicken Wing Nibbles (Flats & Drumettes) with Salt & Pepper, and set aside.
  2. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. If Honey is not soft enough to mix with other ingredients, warm it in the microwave. *Note: Alter the amount of Honey to suit your taste.
  3. Heat a large frying pan, apply a small amount of Oil, and cook Chicken pieces over medium heat until nicely browned on both sides. If it is difficult to cook all at once, cook in batches.
  4. Remove the fat and oil in the pan using a paper towel. Pour the sauce over, cover with a lid, and cook until the sauce is almost gone. Occasionally turn the chicken pieces over, so that they will be cooked evenly.
  5. Sprinkle with some Toasted Sesame Seeds (OR Chilli) and serve.
