Chinese Honey Chicken
If you love this chicken, I am sure you love Chinese food, be it takeout or buffets.
Personally, I just can’t get enough of crispy chicken fried on the stove top and covered in a sweet and savory honey sauce. It’s finger licking good!
Most noteworthy, it makes the perfect addition to a wholesome meal.
How to Make Honey Chicken
This homemade recipe is one of the easiest Chinese recipes to make at home. First of all, you will need a few key ingredients: chicken breast meat and honey, salt and apple cider vinegar for the honey glaze.
Above all, I have an amazing restaurant-quality batter recipe that makes the chicken super crispy and airy (non-greasy). After deep-frying, the chicken cubes will be mixed with the sauce and topped with sesame seeds.
Chicken Dipped in Honey
My recipe is very versatile. You can make it like the pictures, having the crispy chicken already coated with the honey sauce. On the other hand, the recipe can even be made as an appetizer if you serve the chicken and honey sauce separately.
Also, the sauce can be made in advance and kept in the refrigerator. Therefore, you can double or triple the portions you make so you always have it handy. To serve, just pick up the chicken and dip into the honey dressing!
