Honey Fried Chicken

I don't fry chicken often (or ever, really), but we had some chicken breast tenders to cook without a meal in mind, so I decided to do a little digging around online. I found a recipe and adapted it (as usual, right?) and the chicken was a hit with everyone.

Lowery's Seasoned Salt to taste
1/2 cup Honey
1 cup flour
Peanut oil for frying

Heat oil on medium high to high heat. Lightly season the chicken pieces and then coat with honey. Mix flour with seasoned salt in a bag. Place one strip at a time in the bag and shake to coat. Place chicken in oil and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until done. Remove from oil and place on wire rack.

Notes: We used about a pound or so of the boneless skinless chicken breast tenders. I had plenty of flour left over when it was all done, too. Be careful with the honey since it can burn quickly, but don't assume automatically that the chicken is burned if it's darker than normal. It's most likely caramelization. This would make great chicken nuggets for children who refuse to eat anything but, and this way it's not processed meat and you can gauge the amount of salt that goes in as well. These cook up pretty quickly, so be ready with whatever else you plan to serve.


A recipe that's really worth sharing. Thanks!
