#1 Honey Garlic Chicken

The first of our recipes could be considered as an exotic one because it contains honey, which is sweet, and chicken, which usually has salty taste. However, the sweet taste is so mild that even unadventurous eaters could like it.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of butter
¼ cup of honey
1 pound of green beans
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper

Directions:

Step 1
First you need to put the chicken tights in a big bowl and to season them with the salt and pepper. Make sure you apply the spices evenly.

Step 2
Then get a deep pan and heat the butter in it. Once it has melted completely put the chicken tights in it and stir-fry them. Cook them for a few minutes on each side. They need to turn golden-brownish. And when this is so, take the tights off the pan, and keep the pan on the hotplate.

Step 3
Remove some of the excessive fat that has left in the pan. Then add the garlic cloves which you need to have chopped beforehand. Then add the brown sugar and stir it with the chopped garlic a little. Then add the honey, the dried thyme, and the dried oregano. Stir them all well.

Step 4
Now you need to add the stir-fried chicken tights into the pan once more. Cook them for a minute then flip them over. Stir-fry them for one more minute and again flip them over. Then add the pound of green beans into the pan. In a couple of seconds remove the pan from the hot plate.

Step 5
Put the dish in the oven and then bake it for 20 minutes at 200 0C. When the time is up, remove the pan from the oven and serve the dish. A portion of it should contain a chicken tight, and some baked beans. Pour a spoonful of the honey sauce over the chicken tight and sprinkle some chopped parsley on it.

And the dish is ready!
