Author Karina – Cafe Delites
Ingredients
6 chicken thighs , bone in or out, with or without skin*
Salt and pepper , to season
2 teaspoons garlic powder , to season
6 cloves garlic , crushed
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup water (or chicken broth)
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Instructions
Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
Heat a pan or skillet over medium high heat; sear chicken thigh fillets or breast fillets on both sides until golden and cooked through.
FOR BONE IN THIGHS:
Reduce heat after searing on both sides, cover skillet with a lid and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, while turning every 5 minutes until done. Alternatively, see notes for oven method.
Drain most of the excess oil from the pan, leaving about 2 tablespoons of pan juiced for added flavour.
FOR SAUCE:
When chicken is done and cooked through, arrange chicken skin-side up in the pan (if cooking with skin); add the garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the honey, water, vinegar and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thicken slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
Garnish with parsley and serve over vegetables, rice, pasta or with a salad.
Recipe Notes
*For chicken breasts: use 3 breasts, sliced horizontally in half. Sear breast fillets on each side until golden and cooked through (about 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your fillets). Continue directions from the sauce, onwards.
**For oven baked, bone-in thighs: Preheat oven at 400°F or 200°C. Sear chicken in an oven proof skillet or pan, skin side down first for 3 minutes. Flip and sear for a further 3 minutes until browned each side. Then bake in the oven for a further 20-25 minutes, until completely cooked through and no longer pink inside. Continue directions from the sauce, onwards.

Victory is Yours!

I have realized that not everyone will celebrate your victories with you. Not everyone will promote you or help you in the process. That’s ok! Not everyone is meant to be apart of your success. Sometimes your journey may be lonely but Never give up!

Seize the opportunity God has given you! Everything you need for Victory in this season is within your reach!! I don’t fight for Victory, I fight from Victory. You have to view the Victory before it comes. Stop looking at your limitations. See yourself according to what God has spoken over your life! Don’t give up today!!

Do you feel as though life is messy right now?

My husband knows that if he comes home from work and the kitchen is spotless it either means dinner has not been started or we are having take out! Cooking a nice delicious made from scratch meal can’t be done without making a mess. So when he sees a mess he knows I’m up to something good!

Just as the kitchen can get messy, don’t be discouraged when life gets messy. God is up to something! When God is cooking something up look past the mess because you’re getting ready for a really good meal!!
