Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
Heat a pan or skillet over medium high heat; sear the thighs on both sides until golden.
Reduce heat after searing on both sides, cover skillet with a lid and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, while turning every 5 minutes until done. Alternatively, see notes for oven method.
Drain most of the excess oil from the pan, leaving about 2 tablespoons of pan juiced for added flavour.
FOR THE SAUCE
When chicken is done and cooked through, arrange chicken skin-side up in the pan (if cooking with skin); add the garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the honey, water, vinegar and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thicken slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
FOR OVEN BAKED METHOD (FOR BONE-IN THIGHS)
Preheat oven at 400°F .Sear chicken in an oven proof skillet or pan, skin side down first for 3 minutes. Flip and sear for a further 3 minutes until browned each side. Then bake in the oven for a further 20-25 minutes, until completely cooked through and no longer pink inside. Continue directions from the sauce, onwards.
