This sticky-sweet Japanese-inspired honey ginger chicken is an all-in-one winner of a recipe. Simply add the chicken thighs, garlic, ginger and sauce ingredients to a slow cooker and cook low and slow for 3 hours. It’s delicious served with a scattering of salad onions and sesame seeds, with a side of jasmine rice to soak up the sauce.

Tips or serving suggestions

To make this recipe on the hob, brown the chicken thighs (in batches if needed) in a large pan over medium heat in a little hot oil. Add the garlic and ginger and fry for another 2 mins, then add the sauce ingredients and 150ml water and simmer, covered, for 1 hour over low heat. Add the cornflour mixture, turn the heat up to high and boil for 1 min until the sauce thickens. Shred the chicken into the sauce and serve it with jasmine rice, scattered with salad onions and sesame seeds.
