Sticky Lemon Chicken

1 lb chicken leg, about 8-10
salt and pepper
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 -4 tablespoons honey
1 head garlic, each clove sliced in half
1 whole lemon, Sliced
1/4-1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon thyme
1/4 cup fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley

In a large skillet pan, add the oil to Med/High Heat. Season the chicken well with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for about 5-6 minutes, turning each piece.
Add the garlic cloves, soy sauce, and honey to the pan, making sure to get all the chicken in the sauces. Coninue to cook for a 5 minutes.
Add the water and lay the slices of lemon on top of the chicken in the pan. Put a lid on the pan and continue to cook for about 10-15 minutes.
Season the chicken with thyme and parlsey. Continue to cook until the chicken cooked through and no longer pink.

To make the sauce sticky, we had to remove the lid on the pan for the last 10 minutes so that the sauce would cook down. It could be because our pan was overcrowded.
