The answer is simple. Make the honey chicken with my easy recipe!
Just like Sweet and Sour Chicken, Orange Chicken, General Tso’s Chicken and other well known Chinese-American favorites, honey chicken is no different. The recipe is fairly simple using chicken bites, fried, and lightly coated in a sweet honey glaze and garnished with toasted sesame seeds. The essential ingredient to an awesome honey chicken is the texture from the fried batter and the flavoring of the sauce. Up to now, I’m surprised as to why honey chicken is hardly available on any regular Chinese takeout menus. However, honey chicken has indeed gained quite a name, especially at the local Chinese buffet restaurants here in the United States. And when I do go visit one, this is usually one of my favorite picks. Well, I’m a big kid at heart, who, occasionally loves her finger licking good honey chicken.
