Wash and dry chicken with a paper towel and cut into 1" (2.5cm) cubes and put in a bowl.
In a small bowl whisk together 2 Tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp fish sauce and 1 Tbsp soy sauce. This is the chicken's marinade.
Pour marinade over chicken and mix well with your hands to cover all cubes from all sides. Set aside.
Heat a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat.
Once hot, add a dollop of flavorless oil (e.g. avocado oil) and once hot add chicken cubes in two batches and fry until cooked through.
Remove chicken from pan, leaving the juices in the pan (use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove chicken).
Add 1 minced clove of garlic, 2 Tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp fish sauce, 2 Tbsp soy sauce and 2 Tbsp rice vinegar and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and let simmer stirring often until sauce thickens to a honey-like consistency.
Once sauce has thickened, add chicken back in pan and move to coat all cubes and cook for maybe 30 seconds to heat up the chicken again.
Serve over rice and vegetables and pour some sticky sauce over all of it.
