Crunchy Honey Soy Chicken

Another sensational meal!  This has so much flavour in it your tastebuds will be buzzing and with that beautiful mix of super crunchy drenched in a sticky soy sauce it is no surprise that everyone here scoffed their meal in record timing!  This is one that could be enjoyed, as we did, with "fried" rice or with vegetables/salad or my other favourite thing to do - wraps!  It was a bit of a "takeaway" meal though as it was a fried chicken so I will add it as a regular to our Friday night takeaway nights.  Your kids will surely love you for making this one.  Eb x

Flour Mix

  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • ½ tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper 

Add all ingredients into bowl and mix on Speed 5 for 10 seconds.  SET ASIDE in another bowl.

Honey Soy Sauce

  • 30g fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 g oil
  • 50g soy sauce
  • 20g brown sugar
  • 100g honey

Add garlic and ginger to bowl and chop on Speed 7 for 3 seconds.  Add remaining ingredients and cook for 5 minutes at 90deg on Speed 3.  SET ASIDE in a jug.

 

  • 6-8 chicken thighs
  • 1-2 eggs or buttermilk

(note when I tried to use buttermilk left from butter making I found it not to be thick enough so added 1 egg).  Store bought buttermilk would be thicker.

Trim and halve your chicken thighs.  In a separate bowl whisk eggs or alternatively pour some buttermilk in bowl.  In a large fry pan, add enough oil for frying and turn onto a medium high heat.

Coat chicken in flour mix, then in egg wash and back into the flour.  The double coat of flour helps to keep the coating on.

Fry until chicken is cooked.  To serve you can pour sauce over the top or to keep chicken crunchy keep it in a pouring jug or a bowl for dipping.
