Honey Chicken


    My older daughter is unable to work due to Covid-19.  She is a speech therapist and works in the school system.  Lately, she’s been on a cooking and I am not complaining.  The other day, she made some honey chicken and it was so delicious that I decided to share it with you.

    As you are staying home during this quarantine, I hope you take the time to do something you love, something that will bring you joy and be thankful for each moment.

    Honey Chicken 


    1 lb. chicken drumsticks

    2 tbsp Haitian spice (A blend of garlic, pepper, vinegar, scallions, cloves, parsley leaves)

    1 Onion

    2tsp Ginger powder

    4 cloves of garlic

    ¼ cup Honey

    ¼ cup of Soy sauce

    1 cup Chicken broth

    1 tbsp Thai red curry paste

    Red pepper flakes

    1 tbsp Caramelized onion powder

    2 tbsp of vegetable oil


    Season the chicken with the Haitian spice, let it rest for at least 1 hr.

    In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, add the chicken and sauté until they are golden brown.  Remove them from the pan, set aside.

    In the same skillet, add the onions thinly sliced, cook for 1 minute, then add the garlic, the red curry paste, the ginger powder, the pepper flakes, and the caramelized onion powder.  Cook for another minute.

    Then add the chicken stock, the honey, and the soy sauce.  Bring everything to a boil.

    Then add the chicken to the sauce.  Cook for another 15 minutes.

    My daughter was in charge, so she served this delicious honey chicken with her favorite pasta with spinach.

    Bon Appetit!


    1. Yum! I have some turkey legs I need to use and I’ll try this! I’m sorry to hear about your daughter though. I have 2 kids in speech therapy. We’re so thankful for our therapists!

    2. This looks delicious and I love the spice in the marinade before cooking and adding more with the sauce. I would definitely love a meal like this.

    3. Wow! This looks really delicious. So happy that I have most of the ingredients available so I can’t wait to try this Honey Chicken. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    4. Such a good step by step guide here fore sure. My other half loves chicken so I am sure that he will give this a go x

    5. Wow, it looks so delicious. I have honestly never made a chicken like this before, because I am pretty clumsy when it comes to cooking lol. But, now I want to give it a try. Thank you for the recipe. 🙂

    6. Ohhh really looks yum. I hope you don’t mind me copying your recipe. Will definitely gonna cook a version of mine soon. I have plenty of time to cook newly discovered foods during quarantine time. 😂

    7. Ooooh, I would love to try to make this as it looks yummy. What sides do you recommend?

      BTW, unrelated, but tell your daughter that I really appreciate what she does. I used to be in speech therapy when I was in grade school.
