Servings 3 people


  • 1 pound chicken thigh
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 jalapeno chopped (with or without seeds)
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 5 green onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper on each side. Add olive or coconut oil to a medium/large cast iron on medium heat. Once heated, add chicken and cook on each side for 8-10 minutes or until browned. Cover the skillet (I use a top from a Cuisinart pot), for more even and quicker cooking.
  • While chicken is cooking, mince the garlic, and roughly chop the jalapeno and green onions. Place green onions aside.
  • In a medium bowl, make the sauce by adding garlic, jalapeno, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, juice of lime and stir with a spoon to mix all ingredients.
  • After the chicken has been cooked, discard the extra chicken juices from the skillet.
  • Keep the chicken in the skillet, and turn heat to low/medium. Add honey garlic sauce onto the chicken and mix sauce onto chicken with tongs or a large spoon.
  • Cook sauce and chicken for about 5 minutes. Allow enough time for the sauce to thicken.
  • Top with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve hot with rice or veggies.
