Honey Chicken Rice

My colleagues and I are regulars to a cafe called "Ice-Cream House" for lunch and we usually ordered the set lunch comprising rice with a dish of our choice, a bowl of soup, a drink and a scoop of ice-cream. The idea of placing a sunny side-up egg on the rice is interesting. This makes preparing a meal fast and easy as I only need to cook one dish :-)
Recipe for the honey chicken was adopted from Bay Books
