  3. Add in chicken and sear.Keep stir-frying.
  4. Pour in the marinade liquid and the sugar. Continue to cook on medium.Once you have a rolling boil, cover the wok/claypot and let it simmer over a small flame, until all the liquid has disappeared and the chicken is on the cusp of burning.There should hardly be any gravy left. The chicken should be caramelised (charred at parts, even) and sizzling when served.
