I love chinese take out!
Honey Chicken is one of those items that I usually
order to go with my fried rice and egg rolls.
This recipe is so quick and easy, especially if you
use the chicken tenderloins that come in a bag
frozen . . . defrost and prepare!
Now I just need to learn how to make awesome
fried rice . . . still haven't found a good recipe :(
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
- In a large bowl, make a batter by combining the flour, baking powder, salt, and water; mix well.
- In a large deep skillet, toast the sesame seeds over medium-high heat, until golden. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
- Reduce the heat to medium, add 1/4 inch oil to the skillet, and heat the oil until hot but not smoking. Dip the chicken pieces in the batter, coating completely, then cook in batches for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
- Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, warm the honey, garlic, and soy sauce over low heat for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place the chicken in a large bowl and pour the warm honey sauce over it. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and toss until the chicken is well coated. Serve immediately.
