Honey Chicken

by Collette White | May 5, 2013

This is an absolute favourite in our family …. no more unhealthy Honey Chicken take-away for us …. this is a MUST try!


1kg Chicken Breast Fillets

½ cup rice flour

Olive oil for frying

2 cloves garlic – grated

2cm x 2cm fresh ginger – grated

1 tspn sesame oil

2/3 cup honey

2 cups water

2 tblspns rice or potato flour to thicken


Preheat oven to 120oC.

Dice chicken into small pieces approximately 3cm x 3cm. Place chicken into a large bowl with rice flour and mix thoroughly.

Place a little olive oil in the fry pan and turn to medium – high. Place chicken on a single layer in the pan and cook, turning regularly until crispy and golden. Place the cooked chicken onto a baking dish lined with baking paper and place in the preheated oven to keep warm whilst you make the sauce.

In a small saucepan place the garlic, ginger, sesame oil and honey. Put heat onto medium and mix well. Add the water and turn heat to high and bring to the boil. Boil for 2 minutes then turn heat to medium. Add rice or potato flour and stir until thickened (NOTE: I sift the flour in so it doesn’t get lumpy).

Serve with rice and vegetables.


Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
