I love cooking chicken with honey. You might want to check for ingredients online. I am not that sure about the exact ingredients but you could just try it out.

That is just simple with the use of chicken fillet cooked over honey and topped with some sesame seeds. Though not a lot of people are cool with chicken cooked with honey as they don't usually go for something sweet with it.

Sticky Chicken

1 package thin chicken breasts
Sea salt and black pepper
3 – 4 tbsp oil
1 head of garlic, halved horizontally
Few sprigs of thyme
Splash of sherry vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp honey
1 lemon, finely sliced

Season chicken with salt and pepper and heat the oil in a large sauté pan. Brown the chicken pieces in batches over a high heat with the garlic and thyme for 3 mins on each side, until golden brown. Return all the chicken to the pan, add the sherry vinegar and bubble until reduced by half. Drizzle over the soy sauce and honey and shake the pan to mix. Pour in a good splash of hot water and add the lemon slices. Let the liquid bubble and reduce down until syrupy (about 10 mins).

Honey also makes a delicious glaze for roast pork, sausages or parsnips. Heat destroys some of the quality of good honeys, so it is better to use specialist honeys in uncooked foods in which you can taste the difference.

Sometimes, instead of sugar, I used honey. It can also be an alternative if you don't have a sugar or if you want to have your dish a unique taste.
