Crispy Honey Chicken

Total Time: 45 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :
  • For the Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 dash of red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • For the chicken
  • 2 Breasts of chicken cut into 1 1/2" cubes
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • Peanut or canola oil for frying

Instructions :
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, add the honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and apple cider vinegar.
  • Whisk and bring to a boil.
  • In a separate bowl stir together the cornstarch and water.
  • Once the mixture is boiling, while continuing to whisk, slowly add the cornstarch mixture.
  • Bring back to a boil and then turn down to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to finish thickening. The sauce will be only a little thick, as too thick will be hard to toss the chicken in and will taste too cornstarchy.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a cast iron dutch oven over medium high heat (or we do just over medium).
  • In a dish, mix the flour and spices.
  • Now, toss the chicken in the flour, then the buttermilk and back into the flour.
  • Once the oil is hot cook the chicken, turning occasionally until golden and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Drain on a paper towel and then toss in the sauce and serve over sticky rice.
