I shared a Chinese Pork Chop Recipe yesterday that was inspired by my Granny’s dish of the same name. And today I’m posting a Chinese Chicken Chop Recipe. 😆 Sounds the same but they are different. 😀 In this recipe, I’ve used honey instead of sugar which gives the chicken a nice glaze and flavour. Also, I’ve roasted the chicken in the oven instead of pan-frying it. 😉
Also, I’ve plated and served the chicken chop as a Western meal – with steamed corn, pumpkin mac ‘n’ cheese and mesclun greens. Check out my Pumpkin Mac and Cheese Recipe for a more nutritious version of mac ‘n’ cheese. But of course, you can always go with your preferred sides.

Marinade the chicken with light soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Transfer the chicken onto the baking tray and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes till chicken is golden brown on the outside.
