Sometimes when your forced to get creative in the kitchen you can create something truly magical. Having wanted to make my Chicken Kiev's again last night I was dismayed to find I had no eggs to dip the breasts in to make the breadcrumb coating. "I need something sticky!" I thought and instantly thought of honey. Let me tell you; the sweetness it gives the coating around that juicy white meat is a revelation. I'm glad I didn't have those eggs! If your a fan of fried chicken, do yourself a favor and try it today!

Honey Fried Chicken

2 Large Chicken Breasts
Salt And Pepper To Season
100g Runny Honey
2 Chicken Stock Cubes
2 Grated Garlic Cloves
100g Plain Flour

  1.  Start by heating your oven to 200 degrees (180 degrees fan) and heat a pan with oil around 2cm deep on a medium heat. 
  2. Take your breasts and season them with salt and pepper. Pour over the honey and rub it all over
    the breasts until they are fully coated. Leave to one side to rest.
  3. Crumble the stock cubes into a large bowl and add in the garlic and flour and mix together until combined. Take each honey coated breast and dip it in the flour mixture so that they are fully coated. Make sure you get the flour into every little nook and cranny.
  4. By now your oil should be nice and hot (you can check by throwing in a bit of flour and it should fizz instantly). Use tongs to place each breast into the oil and fry for around two minutes on each side until the flour coating is golden brown.
  5. Transfer the breast sto a baking tray lined with foil and place in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes.
Remove the breasts from the oven. Stick a knife into the thickest part of the breast and any juices should run clear. If your still not sure then cut through the breast and you should have a deliciously moist white looking piece of meat.  Leave to rest for around 5 minutes.

Serve as part of a roast dinner or with some homemade chippies. The crispy coating is super sweet and is really out of this world that you will be making this time and time again. Who needs eggs eh?!
