Honey Fried Chicken
Scroll down to see more fried chicken recipes.


  • 3 1/2 to 4 pounds chicken pieces
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry or cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Stir the honey and vinegar together and pour over the chicken; marinate for 2 hour to 4 hours in refrigerator, stirring occasionally. In a bowl, combine flour, bread crumbs, and cayenne pepper; set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk.

In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat to 300°, (higher temperatures could burn honey). Remove the chicken from the marinade and drain on paper towels. Dip the chicken in beaten egg mixtureh, season with salt and pepper, and dredge in the flour mixture, coating thoroughly. Strain the marinade; reserve 1 tablespoon for the sauce.

Gently drop the legs, wings, and thighs into the pan for 5 to 6 minutes on the first side until browned. Turn, add the breast halves and continue cooking, adjusting the heat so the chicken browns evenly on both sides and is tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 18 minutes for dark meat and 10 to 12 minutes for the breast halves.
Serves 4 to 6.

I followed the recipe exactly. I had a thermometer in the oil & it never got above 300 degrees, despite that the chicken crust was burned with in minutes. Had to finish the chicken in the oven. The breading was soggy & tasteless. Not a hint of honey or the 2 tsp. of cayenne pepper. The meat tasted rubbery. Big disappointment for me & my family.
