Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cúps floúr
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp groúnd ginger
  • 1 tbsp freshly groúnd nútmeg
  • 2 tsp groúnd thyme
  • 2 tsp groúnd sage
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cúp honey
  • 1/4 cúp soy saúce low sodiúm soy saúce is best
  • 1 tsp groúnd black pepper
  • canola oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and úsing a meat mallet, poúnd the meat to an even 1/2 inch thickness. Alternatively, yoú can slice the breasts by placing them flat on a cútting board and úsing a very sharp knife to slice them into halves horizontally.
  2. Sift together the floúr, salt, black pepper, groúnd ginger, nútmeg, thyme, sage paprika and cayenne pepper. NOTE: This floúr and spice dredge mix is súfficient for two batches of this chicken recipe so divide the batch and store 1/2 in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. I always like to make enoúgh for next time...and there's always a next time with this recipe.
  3. Make an egg wash by whisking together the eggs and water.
  4. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then dip the meat in the floúr and spice mixtúre. Dip the breast into the eggwash and then a final time into the floúr and spice mix, pressing the mix into the meat to get good contact.
  5. Heat a skillet on the stove with aboút a half inch of canola oil covering the bottom. Yoú will want to carefúlly regúlate the temperatúre here so that the chicken does not brown too qúickly. The thinness of the breast meat practically gúarantees that it will be fúlly cooked by the time the oútside is browned. I find júst below mediúm heat works well. I úse a búrner setting of aboút 4 1/2 oút of 10 on the dial and fry them gently for aboút 4 or 5 minútes per side úntil golden brown and crispy.
  6. Drain on a wire rack for a coúple of minútes before dipping the cooked breasts into the Honey Garlic Saúce. Serve with noodles or rice.
To Make The Honey Garlic Sauce :
  1. In a mediúm saúcepan add the 2 tbsp olive oil and minced garlic. Cook over mediúm heat to soften the garlic bút do not let it brown.
  2. Add the honey, soy saúce and black pepper.
  3. Simmer together for 5-10 minútes, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minútes. Watch this carefúlly as it simmers becaúse it can foam úp over the pot very easily.
TO MAKE THE OVEN BAKED VERSION :
  1. Follow the recipe exactly as for the fried version bút while yoú are preparing the chicken, heat a baking sheet in a 425F degree oven. Preheating the pan does 2 things; it prevents the chicken from sticking to the pan and it ensúres that the heat from the oven starts going directly into the crúst on the chicken to make súre it becomes crispy.
  2. Dip all yoúr chicken pieces and coat as instrúcted. As yoú finish individúal pieces, lay them oút on a lightly floúred cútting board while yoú finish getting them all ready.
  3. When the pieces are all ready, take the hot pan from the oven and lightly oil the bottom of the baking pan with canola oil or other vegetable oil. úse only enoúgh to coat the bottom of the pan.
  4. Working as qúickly as possible, transfer the chicken pieces to the oiled pan. Do not crowd the pieces together. They shoúld NOT toúch each other or they will steam and not get crispy. Leave at least an inch of space between all pieces.
  5. Lightly spray the tops of the chicken pieces with vegetable oil. I recommend that yoú have a spray bottle filled with canola oil to úse in any oven fried recipe for chicken, inclúding this one. A simple púmp bottle will do. Spraying the tops helps them start to get crispy in the hot oven too.
  6. Maintain the heat at 425 degrees F and place baking sheet in the oven. I úse the second lowest rack in my oven.
  7. Bake for 15 minútes withoút opening the door! Take the pan oút of the oven and flip all of the chicken pieces over.
  8. Retúrn to the oven for another 10-15 minútes úntil the chicken pieces brown nicely and become crispy. Again don't open the door, maintaining a hot oven is important for this method.
  9. Dip the baked pieces in the saúce as úsúal and serve immediately.
