- 4 huge boneless skinless hen breasts
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp salt

- 8 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3-4 cloves minced garlic
- 1 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium soy sauce is best
- 1 tsp flooring black pepper

- Place the hen breasts among 2 sheets of plastic wrap and utilizing a meat mallet, pound the beef to an even 1/2 inch thickness. Alternatively, you possibly can slice the breasts by using means of setting them flat on a reducing board and utilizing a really sharp knife to slice them into halves horizontally.
- Sift collectively the flour, salt, black pepper, flooring ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage paprika and cayenne pepper. NOTE: This flour and spice dredge blend is sufficient for NULL batches of this hen recipe so divide the batch and shop 1/2 in a Ziploc bag within the freezer. I at all times desire to make sufficient for subsequent time...and there is at all times a subsequent time with this recipe.
- Make an egg wash by using means of whisking collectively the eggs and water.
- Season the hen breasts with salt and pepper, then dip the beef within the flour and spice mixture. Dip the breast into the eggwash after which a last time into the flour and spice mix, urgent the blend into the beef to get nice contact.
- Heat a skillet at the range with about a half inch of canola oil overlaying the bottom. You will desire to intently alter the temperature right the following so that the hen would now not brown too quickly. The thinness of the breast meat nearly promises that it's going to be totally cooked by using means of the time the backyard is browned. I discover simply beneath medium warmth works well. I use a burner setting of about four 1/2 out of 10 at the dial and fry them gently for about four or 5 minutes per edge till golden brown and crispy.
- Drain on a wire rack for a pair of minutes earlier than dipping the cooked breasts into the Honey Garlic Sauce. Serve with noodles or rice.
- To make the Honey Garlic Sauce:
- In a medium saucepan upload the 2 tbsp olive oil and minced garlic. Cook over medium warmth to melt the garlic but don't let it brown.
- Add the honey, soy sauce and black pepper.
- Simmer collectively for 5-10 minutes, take away from warmth and enable to cool for a number of minutes. Watch this intently simply due to the fact it simmers simply due to the fact it is going to probably foam up over the pot very easily.
- TO MAKE THE OVEN BAKED VERSION
- Follow the recipe precisely as for the fried model but whereas you're getting ready the chicken, warmth a baking sheet in a 425F stage oven. Preheating the pan does 2 things; it prevents the hen from sticking to the pan and it ensures that the warmth from the oven begins going immediately into the crust at the hen to make certain it turns into crispy.
- Dip all of your hen items and coat as instructed. As you end person pieces, lay them out on a calmly floured reducing board whereas you end getting all of them ready.
- When the items are all ready, take the hot pan from the oven and calmly oil the backside of the baking pan with canola oil or different vegetable oil. Use in basic terms sufficient to coat the backside of the pan.
- Working as fast as possible, move the hen items to the oiled pan. Do now not crowd the items together. They ought to NOT contact every different or they'll steam and never get crispy. Leave no less than an inch of house among all pieces.
- Lightly spray the tops of the hen items with vegetable oil. I suggest that you've a spray bottle crammed with canola oil to make use of in any oven fried recipe for chicken, adding this one. A easy pump bottle will do. Spraying the tops facilitates them bounce to get crispy within the hot oven too.
- Maintain the warmth at 425 ranges F and region baking sheet within the oven. I use the moment lowest rack in my oven.
- Bake for 15 minutes with out establishing the door! Take the pan out of the oven and flip all the hen items over.
- Return to the oven for one other 10-15 minutes till the hen items brown properly and grow to be crispy. Again don't open the door, holding a hot oven is principal for this method.
- Dip the baked items within the sauce as standard and serve immediately.
