  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger peeled and finely grated (I store mine in the freezer – makes grating so easy!)
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into strips
  • 1 lime thinly sliced
  • 2 cups peas thawed if frozen
  • shredded green onions
  • steamed rice to serve


  • Place the honey, oyster sauce, lime juice, ginger, garlic and water in a bowl and mix to combine.  Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large wok or non-stick skillet over high heat.  Add the chicken and cook in batches for 6 minutes or until cooked through.  Add the honey  mixture and lime and bring to a boil.  Cook for 2-4 minutes or until thickened slightly.  Add the peas, cook until they are warmed through.  
  • Arrange the chicken on a platter and top with the green onions. Spoon over the pan sauce and serve with rice.
