Easy Peasy Honey Chilli Chicken

Firstly, thanks to Kak Rozieta for suggesting that I take home some leftover grilled tandoori chicken at the end of a dinner party at Sharleee's place and 'make something else' with it.
Secondly, this dish utilizes leftovers and the bottom of a bottle of tomato ketchup and a bottle of chilli sauce. Therefore, no real measurements were made. I don't know if it even qualifies as a real recipe. I guess, you can use raw chicken in place of the leftover chicken, or even pre-grill the chicken yourself before making the dish.
My best advice is to look the recipe over and see how you can make it work for you.

Easy peasy Honey Chilli Chicken

about 200grams chicken (pre-grilled, or not)
5 shallots, sliced thinly
2 garlic pips, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
2 tablespoons chilli sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 stick carrot, shredded
1 large onion, sliced into rings
salt n pepper to taste

In a bit of oil, saute the shallots and garlic till brown but not burnt. Add in the sauces and a little bit of water and stir to mix well. Add in the honey, then gradually add the sugar till it is well dissolved. Simmer till sauce is thick and bubbly, then toss in the chicken till all is well coated. Add the carrots and onions. Taste before adding salt and pepper.

I added salt and pepper after I've added the chicken and tasted the dish, because the chicken was already well seasoned. And note to Nina: Kalau malas nak potong sayur halus, gunalah shredder.. :)
We had this with leftover fried rice.

Whilst eating it, I imagined the sauce being slightly burnt under a grill.. it could be quite yummeh. So I guess you could try putting uncooked chicken wings and drummets into the sauce, then put them on the barbie or under the broiler and turn them into a sorta buffalo wings sorta thing. Do tell me if you decide to try it out!
