  • 6 (1.5-2lb / 750g-1kg) chicken thigh fillets, boneless skinless

  • Whisk sauce ingredients in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan over medium high heat.
  • Quickly dip chicken in sauce, shake off excess, then place in pan.
  • Cook the first side for 2 to 3 minutes, until it caramelises and is dark golden, then turn and cook the other side for 2 minutes.
  • Add remaining sauce and water.
  • Bring to rapid simmer, stirring occasionally, scraping the bottom of the pan to get all the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
