Food for thought: Honey Garlic Chicken

Yes! It is the famous Honey Garlic Chicken and most children’s favorite food everywhere especially at any mall food court. So, I am sharing this today with you all. Definitely, it is easy to make and delicious. The trick to have crispy fried chicken is to fry them twice.


  • 2 large chicken breasts cut into bite size cubes
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil to deep fry
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup potato or corn starch
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 stalk green onions chopped for garnish


  • Add salt and pepper to cubed chicken and marinate for at least 30 mins to an hour.
  • On a deep frying pan, heat up oil on high medium
  • Mix flour and starch and coat the chicken cubes
  • When oil is hot and ready, drop chicken cubes and fry until golden brown
  • Drain excess oil and let it set for about 5 minutes
  • Reheat the oil and deep fry again the chicken for about 3-5 minutes or until brown and crispy
  • Drain excess oil
  • Mix ketchup, honey and soy sauce
  • On a non stick pan, add the sesame oil and garlic, saute on high medium, stir constantly to avoid burning, until garlic is golden brown
  • Add mixture and stir for about 2-3 minutes until boiling
  • Add chicken and mix well
  • Transfer to a serving dish
  • Garnish with chopped onions
  • Serve warm with steam rice


Las Vegas, Nevada USA

One of my favorite places in the world. I travel to Las Vegas at least twice a year for fun and to visit my dearest friends. Aside from enjoying the company of my friends, I also enjoy Las Vegas itself. I love the lights and of course entertainment and food…
