Let’s talk about how amazing this crispy honey garlic chicken is. I know I always tell you how this recipe is delicious and that recipe is delicious. But I try to use hyperboles sparingly so that when something like this comes along, you know I’m not kidding.
It’s crispy. Super, super, super crispy. So crispy. And while that herbed breading is largely responsible for the deliciousness of this chicken, the honey garlic sauce just knocks it out of this world.

CRISPY HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN RECIPE TIPS
So how do we cook this miracle chicken? Well, that’s easy and takes less than 30 minutes too. Flatten it, dredge it in spiced breading, dip it in egg, dredge it again and pan-fry it. In case you missed it, that’s a double dredge and that’s why it’s so crispy. The ingredients of cornstarch and baking powder added to the breading makes it crispier than your average breading.
Then you make the sauce by sauteing ginger and garlic with honey and soy sauce. Pour that magical sauce all over your chicken and enjoy it hot. Because it has to be hot to enjoy all that crunchy chicken. Just make sure to drizzle with the sauce when you’re ready to eat. It’s kind of like the french fries rule; If you wait too long it will get soggy.
And that’s about it. It’s so little effort for so much flavor. Let me know how you liked it and what you paired it with in the comments below.
