HONEY CHICKEN
All I can really say about this crispy honey chicken is that You. Need. To. Make. It! Trust me. I usually don’t waste my time making dishes that have to be pan-fried in oil.
Because let’s be real, it’s a lot of work to stand there, dredge the chicken, fry it up, and then remove it all and then do all that for 3 more batches while the kids are screaming from their hunger pains.  

I promise that this one is worth all the “work” of dredging, frying, moving, cooling and repeating. It really is!

MY TIPS FOR THIS HONEY CHICKEN RECIPE
Prepare to get messy when making this! You will get a thick coating of the flour/buttermilk mixture on your fingers. Just wash it off between each batch. 
Make sure the oil is not turned to very highest heat setting otherwise it will splatter at you when you put the chicken in. If it does splatter, simply turn the heat down before you add more chicken. 
Turn on the exhaust fan above the stove when making this to keep the “fried food” smell at bay. 
Start the sauce before you start cooking your first batch of chicken. The sauce is just fine simmering as the chicken finishes cooking. If it starts to get too thick, just add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin it out.
