I, on more than one occasion, have professed my love of Chinese buffets. My family would be there once a week if my husband allowed it. Iâ€™m not one of those people who end up with 5 plates in front of them, instead I get one plate and put one piece of everything on that plate. Iâ€™m a weirdo, what can I say? But there are a few things that Iâ€™m willing to go back for seconds of and one of those is honey chicken. If youâ€™ve never tried it, itâ€™s deep fried chicken nuggets that are tossed in a honey sauce. Oh yes. Itâ€™s super sweet and just perfection in every way.
This recipe is exactly like that honey chicken I love so much! The original recipe says that itâ€™s not as sweet as the buffet-style chicken but I think itâ€™s identical to the versions of honey chicken Iâ€™ve tried. My kids even ate it which says a lot because neither of them are big chicken eaters unless it comes in a cardboard box and with a toy.
I will recommend that you make extra sauce to put on the rice. Trust me, youâ€™ll want it.
