Honey Garlic Chicken

by zirbirt

Honey garlic chicken is a wonderful sticky treat that is sure to please. I usually add a little spice to this concoction, but for this run, I am going plain Jane. I like this over the standard takeout versions, mostly because it tastes better, and because it is just slightly more healthy (or less terrible for you, if you will)

I start with about 2 lbs of chicken breast tenderloins.

I cut each one in half.

I then take a large ziplock bag and add about 1/2 cup of flour, 2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of dried minced garlic, and some ground black pepper.

I shake it up a bit, then add all of the chicken. I shake, rotating the bag, until all of the chicken is fully coated.

Next I take a bowl and whisk together 2 eggs and about 1/2 cup of milk.

I take a paper plate and dump a bunch of Panko Bread crumbs on there. I definitely suggest panko for this application, they make a HUGE difference in the final product.

I open my bag of chicken, and working one piece at a time: I dip the chicken into the egg mixture, fully coating it. Then, roll it into the bread crumbs.

I then place it on a baking sheet or wire rack (wire rack In this case). I continue doing this until I run out of chicken.

This goes into a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

While this is cooking, I take a medium saucepan and add 1 Tbs of butter to it.

I let that warm over medium heat and toss in 4 cloves of garlic chopped.

Once the garlic just begins to brown, I add in: 1/2 cup honey and 3 Tbs Soy sauce. At this point, if I wanted to spice things up a bit, I can add a bit of Sriracha or some red peppers.

I then take 1 cup of water and add in 2 Tbs of Cornstarch and mix it together in a separate bowl.

I pour that into my pot and heat everything over medium heat (whisking occasionally).

Once it begins boiling the sauce will transform:

Once my chicken is done, I remove it from the oven and put it in a large bowl.

I pour my sauce right over the chicken.

I then toss the chicken to get it fully coated.

I sprinkle on some sesame seeds, and toss it a couple more times:

Then, it is done. I just put it on a plate and serve. Seriously people will not believe that something this good is really this easy to make, but it is.

Hope you enjoyed this posting. As always, thanks for reading!
