Honey Curry Chicken

My family and I love eating. And we enjoy sampling a wide variety of food.
Obviously I love cooking too. I love food that's bursting with fantastic aroma and flavours. Like this Honey Curry Chicken. A recipe taken from my sister. Of course I reworked the recipe to my liking.
This recipe is deliciously special that I truly suggest you to try it. It allows you to combine something simple with a few other ingredients to create a dish that is perfectly full of flavours.


1 whole chicken ( cleaned and cut into 16 pieces)
2 small packet of chilli powder
10 dried chilies (blended)
3 clove of large onions
2 clove of garlic
2cm of ginger
curry leaves
2 sticks cinnamon
2 star anise
a bit of oyster sauce
1/2 cup honey
salt and sugar to taste
oil for frying


  1. Fry the chicken until 3/4 done. Set aside
  2. Heat the pan with oil. Add in onions, ginger, garlic, cinnamon sticks, and curry leaves.
  3. Stir fry for 5 minutes until the beautiful aroma fill your kitchen
  4. Add in dried chillies (blended) until the colour changes.
  5. Meanwhile, add water to chili powder and pour it into the pan.
  6. Add in the honey and oyster sauce. Sprinkle the sugar and salt to your liking
  7. Finally, add in the chicken,. Stir fry for another 5 minutes.
  8. It's now ready for you to enjoy. Try it.

Tips and tricks:

  1. Only add in the honey and chili powder towards the end of your cooking time as it will make the taste of the dish bitter if you overcook it.


  1. Thanks for stopping by at my blog. This recipe looks really delicious. By the way, may I asked how much is 2 small packet of chili powder? Maybe about 3 tbsp?

  2. Thanks for yet another mouth-watering dish, Azian. Looks like Ayam Madu Nasi Kandar Pel*t* also boleh kalah ni?! Insya Allah will try as my hubby memang suka ayam masak with honey, etc.

    By the way, when you said "fry the chicken" - with garam kunyit, OR just like that?

    Take care :)

  3. Kak Azian,
    Honey Chicken ini kekadang kita boleh jumpa kat majlis orang kahwin, kan..?? Cath ingat masa dulu2, we all invited to a Malay wedding dinner and was served Ayam Madu... Sama ke tu..??

  4. Salam, Azian. Ni lagi sorang mak yg tersangatlah rajiiiiiin. Tabik, tabik. Selalu blog-hopped ke blog u and selalu tak tahaaaaaan tengok gambo2 food. As I told Zaitgha, I masak, ok. Tapi you guys (mak2) yg definitely far far far more rajin than i am!! ha ha

  5. uisskkk sedapnyer..can try nnti!

  6. Gerth,
    Thanks for visiting...2 small packets of chilli powder= 40grams. I think 3/4 tbsp should be o.k. If you like it hot, you can add some more.

  7. Shana,
    Kalau ikutkan bau, memang ala-ala nasi kandar punya. Lagi banyak masukkan daun kari , lagi bau dia ala-ala penang mari la.
    Yes, goreng pakai kunyit dan garam. Sorry tak mention, terlupa.
    Take Care!

  8. Cath,
    Tak tau la pulak yang Cath makan tu macam yang Kak Azian buat ni, sebab macam-macam resipi honey chicken ni. Kak Azian pun pilih-pilih jugak, yang manis sangat tak suka la.
