To double dip is usually a big no no when it comes to taking money or using the same chip in the dip jar, except when it comes to this recipe.
This Double Dip Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts recipe is Asian inspired as its honey, garlic sauce is made with soy sauce.
Serves 4 Total Time: 30 minutes
4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 tablespoons ground ginger
1/2 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
Oil for frying
Remove any fat from the chicken breasts. Place them between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound them with a meat mallet to 1/2” thick. In a bowl sift together the next nine seasoning ingredients. In another bowl add your eggs and water, mix well. Salt and pepper your chicken breasts, then dredge them into the flour mixture, then the egg wash and then again in the flour mixture. Press down to make sure it sticks.
In a skillet add the oil (the skillet should be the right size so the oil is 1/2” deep.) on medium heat. When heated add your chicken and cook until crispy, 4-5 minutes on each side. The chicken will cook faster, because it’s onlt 1/2” thick. Remove to a wire rack to drain.
Make your garlic honey sauce. In a medium skillet add 2 tablespoons olive oil and cook the garlic on medium heat to soften, but not brown, maybe a minute. Add honey, soy sauce and black pepper, let simmer 4-5 minutes. Watch so it doesn’t foam up. When you are ready to serve, dip chicken into the garlic honey sauce. Yum Yum!
