Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken

Updated: 6 days ago


I’ve recently experimented with a new dish, Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken, inspired by a suggestion from @beerswithdave on Instagram. He thought that using my fermented garlic in honey for chicken with a spicy kick might be a great idea, and he was absolutely right.


This dish combines the sweet, aromatic flavors of fermented garlic honey with a bit of heat from sriracha, resulting in a deliciously balanced and mouthwatering experience.



This recipe is straightforward and fun to make, even if you're not an experienced cook. The marinade and batter for the chicken are infused with a variety of seasonings, creating layers of flavor in every bite. Double frying the chicken ensures it’s extra crispy, which perfectly complements the sticky, spicy honey garlic sauce.


If you’ve tried my previous Maltose Chicken recipe, you’ll find this one very similar but with an exciting twist.



I encourage you to give this Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken a try. It’s a great way to explore new flavors and techniques in your kitchen. The combination of sweet and spicy is sure to be a hit, whether you're cooking for yourself or entertaining friends.


Plus, the satisfaction of making such a tasty dish from scratch is unbeatable. Enjoy the process, and most importantly, enjoy the delicious results!
