Sticky Chicken

I love a fakeaway recipe but had no real idea of what I was making, so just added a bit of this n that, that I had in the cupboards till this came about. This is a bit of a mish mash of two recipes- sweet n sour and teriyaki. It's little sweet, a little tart and a little sticky. I left the sauce a little runny as I like that but if you want it more sticky add a little more honey. If you want a little heat add some chilli flakes. You can fry the chicken before putting into the SC to give a nice coating or finish it off on the hob if you want the sauce really thick and sticky but I thought this was just nice as it was. This is so versatile and can be adapted to suit you families needs. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback. x
