Sticky Soy-glazed Chicken

Serves 4


  • In a medium bowl, toss to combine the cucumber, shallot, vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper; set aside while you make the chicken.
  • In a shallow dish, stir soy sauce and honey together; add chicken and turn to coat.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add garlic and coriander and stir to coat. Add chicken breasts (reserve the marinade) and cook until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. (Browning happens a little faster than usual here because of the honey and soy; if the marinade is getting too dark, lower the heat slightly.)
  • Add reserved marinade and ¼ cup water to the skillet. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered, until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes more per side. Uncover the skillet, increase heat to medium-high and cook, turning chicken occasionally, until liquid is reduced and chicken is glazed, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve chicken drizzled with any leftover glaze over rice with cucumber salad and cilantro.
