How to make honey garlic chicken

  • Season the chicken: Add the chicken to a large Ziploc bag together with flour, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix through the bag to evenly coat all the chicken pieces.
  • Cook the chicken: Heat the oil in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook on all sides until golden brown, for about 8-10 minutes in total. You may need to cook the chicken in batches, to avoid overcrowding the pan.
