Honey Chilli Chicken

What a rocker. Shall we cook? Yes, we shall. Nothing complicated mind you. I know you can do it (Tom Yam Chicken & Chicken Curry with Potatoes).

400g chicken (cut into bite sizes)
1 tsp ginger paste 
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp plain chilli powder (or as you prefer)
1 large onion - slice 
3 sprigs curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Marinate chicken with all the ingredients except onion and curry leaves for at least 4 hours. 
In heated oil,  saute onion and curry leaves. 
Add marinated chicken, stir, pour 1/4 cup of water and simmer.  
Stir and cook till chicken is tender and gravy thickens up.
Remove from heat.
