Crispy honey garlic chicken is made with a double-battered spice mix and pan-fried twice then drizzled with an addictive honey garlic sauce.


Units Scale
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme

  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
