Honey Chicken


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 :(









Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 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

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, make a batter by combining the flour, baking powder, salt, and water; mix well.
     
  2. In a large deep skillet, toast the sesame seeds over medium-high heat, until golden. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. 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.

I love Mr. Food :) He used to do short food segments on our local news . . . haven't seen them in a while and was so happy to find his website!

yep when I lived in Cleveland he did short segments on our local news too. I am thinking they had to be syndicated.

I just adored him! I knew he had a website but I had forgotten all about him!

We both found him again! By the way, his website includes videos too.
