In a small bowl, whisk water and cornstarch to a slurry. Stir in ketchup, honey, soy sauce, sambal oelek (or other garlic chili sauce), and minced garlic. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high. Add the pieces of chicken thighs first, seasoning liberally with Kosher salt and black pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until browned all over. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate and keep warm.
If needed, add another tablespoon oil to pan. Cook chicken breast pieces, seasoned with Kosher salt and black pepper, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until browned all over. Return the chicken thigh meat to pan along with the sauce.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce is thick and coats chicken.
To serve, plate rice on a large serving platter. Top rice with chicken and sauce.
