Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

Do these look chicken breasts look good or what? They should. The original pork version of this recipe Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops was posted one year ago this week and very quickly grew to being the most popular recipe ever on Rock Recipes with just over 117,000 views to date. It has been among the most commented upon and possibly the most raved about recipe I have ever posted too and for very good reason. It seems everyone who tried them loved them and made them over and over again. So many readers have sent thanks for this recipe and shared it with their friends, declaring that it had become a new favorite in their family and had become a permanent fixture in their dinner planning menus.

Many readers also shared that they had tried this recipe with chicken breasts as well, as we often do in my family and on the occasion of the one year anniversary of the recipe's publication, we decided to prepare the chicken version and snap a new photo for the blog. Because the chicken breasts are pounded out to a 1/2 inch thickness, they fry up even faster than the pork chops while still providing a juicy chicken interior and a super crunchy exterior that has been such a big reason for this recipe's popularity. A quick dip in the easily prepared honey garlic sauce adds a sweet and slightly salty finish that everyone just loves. We served ours with some Chinese egg noodles, lightly tossed in the same sauce, with a few sauteed vegetables on the side for what our entire family agreed was one of the most satisfying and delicious meals imaginable in under 30 minutes. Workday dinners just don't get better than this.

Update September 6, 2013: With now over 1.7 million views this is Rock Recipes most popular recipe ever.
Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken

Recipe by Barry C. Parsons
With almost 2 MILLION hits, this is Rock Recipes most popular recipe ever.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10-15 minutes
Total time: Aprox 1/2 hour
Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground thyme
  • 2 tsp ground sage
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 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 ground black pepper
  • canola oil for frying
Cooking Directions
  1. Place the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and using a meat mallet, pound the meat to an even 1/2 inch thickness. Alternatively, you can slice the breasts by placing them flat on a cutting board and using a very sharp knife to slice them into halves horizontally.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt, black pepper, ground ginger, nutmeg, thyme, sage paprika and cayenne pepper. NOTE: This flour and spice dredge mix is sufficient for two batches of this chicken recipe. You can store the leftover mix in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for the next time you make this recipe...and there will be a next time.
  3. Make an egg wash by whisking together the eggs and water.
  4. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then dip the meat in the flour and spice mixture. Dip the breast into the eggwash and then a final time into the flour and spice mix, pressing the mix into the meat to get good contact.
  5. Heat a skillet on the stove with about a half inch of canola oil covering the bottom. You will want to carefully regulate the temperature here so that the chicken does not brown too quickly. The thinness of the breast meat practically guarantees that it will be fully cooked by the time the outside is browned. I find just below medium heat works well. I use a burner setting of about 4 1/2 out of 10 on the dial and fry them gently for about 4 or 5 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Drain on a wire rack for a couple of minutes before dipping the cooked breasts into the Honey Garlic Sauce. Serve with noodles or rice. 
  7. To make the Honey Garlic Sauce:
  8. In a medium saucepan add the 2 tbsp olive oil and minced garlic. Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic but do not let it brown.
  9. Add the honey, soy sauce and black pepper.
  10. Simmer together for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Watch this carefully as it simmers because it can foam up over the pot very easily.

Nice work, I am really glad to be 1 of several visitants on this awful site : D

April 20, 2012 at 1:54 AM

This looks so good and I've always wondered how to make a crispy/sticky chicken -so thank you for making this so easy... I am featuring this post in today's Friday Food Fetish roundup (with a link-back and attribution), but please let me know if you have any objections. As always, it's a pleasure to be following your creations…

This chicken recipe looks fantastic and very very delicious. I'm bookmarking it to try at home sometime soon!

April 22, 2012 at 11:29 AM

I can't wait to try this recipe! I may use boneless chicken thighs as well, my son dislikes white meat sometimes, so I usually make thighs for him. I'll post another comment after we give it a go!

April 24, 2012 at 6:08 PM

I love these kinds of recipes...just up my alley! I'll be trying this one and I'll probably blog (brag) about it afterwards!

April 24, 2012 at 6:15 PM

Oh my heavens. This looks incredible! Gorgeous photos!

April 25, 2012 at 10:57 AM

As far as the battering and frying goes, it's very close to, well, everything I fry. If you have a problem with the crust falling off, I've found that using cake flower, which is much thinner, helps tremendously. It's my secret ingredient :) I will CERTAINLY be trying this recipe though. Sounds fantastic!

April 25, 2012 at 10:59 PM

I tried this out for dinner tonight. My only deviation from this recipe was using olive instead of canola oil. It didn't get as crispy as I thought, but that may be because I don't think the oil was quite hot enough when I put the chicken in. It still tasted delicious and will try it again sometime. Thanks for sharing!

April 26, 2012 at 11:28 AM

My family and I already LOVE the pork chops version of this recipe. It's on my list of dinners to make before next week's grocery store trip. We will definitely be trying this chicken version.

Made this tonight for dinner! SO GOOD! The only thing I would change is the amount of honey. It tasted a little strong, but that might of been because I used organic honey. Either way, a delicious recipe added to the rotation! :)

April 29, 2012 at 12:29 AM

This was FANTASTIC!!!! We doubled the sauce and served it all over rice. Left out the sage..didn't have it and use grape seed oil for frying. EVERYONE ...ALL SIX OF US...LOVED it!!! Thanks!!!

Really want it crispy??? We made this last night for dinner with one variation...Use Panko for the final coating...1)dip the meat in flour w/no spices. 2) Dip the breast into the eggwash and 3)then a final time into Panko and spice mix - instead of flour & spices -, pressing the mix into the meat to get good contact.

You should try grape seed oil for frying, olive oil isn't made for high heat (and canola isn't a great oil - gmo)

May 7, 2012 at 5:05 PM

Do you think it would work to bake it? I tried it as written and it was wonderful but I'd like to make it a little healthier for the kids.

May 13, 2012 at 8:53 AM

If I were to try, I would coat a baking dish with oil and use a spray bottle to spritz the top with oil too and I woud turn them over half way through cooking. Good luck.

May 13, 2012 at 9:12 AM

There's plenty of flavor in the sauce so you can substitute other herbs or spices or just omit them.

May 14, 2012 at 12:52 PM

This will be crispier using canola oil. The heating and browning ability of canola vs. olive oil vs butter is all different.

Did you try baking it? I am curious as to how it turned out. I'd rather bake than fry. Thanks.

You could try baking them on a wire rack placed on top of a baking sheet - that will help keep them crispy!

May 25, 2012 at 10:29 AM

This was AWESOME! I didn't have all the spices but used poultry seasoning for the thyme/sage and 5 spice for the ginger/nutmeg etc...I made a half recipe since it was just the kids and I but I should have made the whole thing - we were fighting over the last of the chicken.

Did a shallow pan fry with about 2 TBSP of grapeseed oil per 14 oz of breasts - did 28 oz of breasts total (w/excess flour and spices). Also did the third dip in panko and spices like another reviewer suggested. So good!! Thanks!

Made this for dinner tonight after collecting recipes on pinterest for months... AMAZING!!
Loved by all whom ate it!
Had tonnes of flour/spice mix so I was glad I set some aside before dipping the chicken... will freeze for later.
I think next time I will leave out the nutmeg... the same spice I use in my pumpkin cookies and quite powerful... will also be trying this using panko!
Fried the chicken in coconut oil as well...very good.
Thank!!

I made this for dinner tonight. My variations, some suggested by others: I used grapeseed oil; I dipped in plain flour, then egg, then panko with spices; and omitted sage simply because I didn't have it. I found that I had to really watch the burning - I think it was the paprika, which tends to burn easily. The sauce was superb!

June 9, 2012 at 1:15 AM

I too just made this with white rice for dinner tonight. The sauce was so yummy. The chicken was good too, but it didn't get as crispy as I had hoped it would. I used canola oil like it said, maybe I should of fried it in something else. Also definitely a lot of the flour mixture left over! Still would make it again :)

Made this last night - was incredible!!!!!!! The ginger and thyme in the spice mix really stood out and gave it a really delicious flavor. My boyfriend said to put a pin on this recipe and make it over and over again! I noticed that people have commented on it not getting good and crispy - I poured a decent amount of canola oil into the pan before frying, and let it heat up for a good 5 minutes so that some of it evaporated and was very hot. Only cooked each side for 4 minutes and it was very crispy and perfect. Dipping it into the soy glaze just took it over the edge! Served it with brown rice and steamed brocolli, and poured the sauce over it all! Incredible! Thank you!

July 12, 2012 at 1:26 AM

Just made this tonight!

Some comments... I agree that the recipe had way too much flour and egg mixture left over... I would recommend halving both of them unless you want to save the mixture for another time.

I cooked the chicken in a deep fryer at 350 degrees for about 6-7 minutes. Make sure the chicken inside is completely done! Next time I'm going to flatten it into 1/4 of an inch because I think it would work better. I also halved each chicken breast so the pieces were smaller.

I tasted the chicken before I dipped it in the sauce and I found the spices to be a bit overpowering. Next time I will definitely decrease the ginger because that was the most prominent taste.

However, the sauce was DELICIOUS! It also helped subdue the spice taste, so the end result was very tasty. My dad, who doesn't care for honey, even said I should make the recipe again sometime.

If anyone has tried baking this chicken instead of frying it, let me know how it turned out!

July 12, 2012 at 3:47 AM

This looks absolutely delicious! I'm going to have to try this soon. Like tomorrow. Maybe for lunch if I can't wait for dinner.

This was delicious! The only thing I did differently was to use 1/2 flour and 1/2 cornstarch then after you are done with coating with the flour/cornstarch/spice mix, let them set for a good 45 minutes until the coating gets gooey, then fry. The using cornstarch and letting them set makes them crispier. The sauce was to die for!! Thanks for the great recipe!

I followed the cornstarch advice above. Excellent! We reduced the ginger and nutmeg to about 1/3 what was called for. We added twice as much soy sauce to the garlic/honey sauce. It was just too strong on honey flavor. Served with whole wheat pasta and steamed broccoli. Best crunchy fried chicken ever!!

Just wanted to remind people frying at a high temp and for short periods of time is not unhealthy very little oil actually gets in the food.. It's when your food sits in oil or low temperature oil that makes food greasy

Made this for dinner last night. As far as the crispiness of the chicken, it turned out perfect. I cooked it in my electric skillet for 4-5 minutes on each side. Although, I feel like the recipe calls for way too much ginger. I would for sure cut that in half. As far as the honey, it was a tad overpowering as well. I will definitely make the chicken again, but with different spices.

Made this for dinner tonight and loved the chicken! It turned out nice and crispy and had great flavor. Didn't care for the sauce too much as all I tasted was pepper and honey :( My garlic did brown just a little bit, too. I was super bummed after all the rave comments about how the sauce made the dish. Not sure where I went wrong, but I think this is a definite redo recipe.

I freeze my extra flour and spice mix in a ziploc bag in the freezer. As it has come into contact with raw chicken, this is a much better and safer storage method.

I really want to make this but, frying is not my thing. if i spray the chicken (after i cover it with the final coating of flour-spice mixture) on both sides with grapeseed or olive oil and then bake it will it be fine? also do i cover it or uncover it?

October 19, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Several people have reported good results with the spray and bake technique. I prefer to spread my baking sheet with a thin layer of oil and then spray the tops. Be sure to flip the chicken breasts half way through the cooking time though for best results and no DO NOT COVER! Covering will cause steam and they will get soggy and not crisp up. Let us know how it works out.

I made this tonight but adjusted the seasonings. When you start talking about tablespoons of ginger and nutmeg I get a little nervous. I stopped at one tablespoon of ginger and still thought it was a bit much. Left the nutmeg out by accident but didn't miss it. Loved the other seasonings together but I did think it was a little too much salt. I'll halve that next time. I fried in peanut oil in an electric skillet and the breading was crisp and adhered well to the chicken. Thanks for the recipe.

November 13, 2012 at 8:20 PM

do you think this would work if I cut the chicken into strips or nuggets?

I made this tonight. I didn't have the cayenne pepper but it was still soooo good. CANT. STOP. EATING. Served over sticky brown rice. Cooked on medium heat which worked well. Make sure the oil is nice and hot before you add the chicken. Don't be afraid to cook it until the coating is a nice dark brown. The cuts that I let cook longer were more crisp and tasted better. Since you have to dip it in a thin sauce after cooking it you want it really crispy so the sauce doesn't make is soggy. Don't dip it in the sauce until it is ready to be eaten. For the leftover chicken breasts that have not been dipped yet I will be saving the sauce, reheating the chicken in the oven and dipping in the sauce right before eating. I would imagine it will be as good as the first time this way. I also drizzled a little bit of the honey sauce over the brown rice before I put the chicken on top. SOOO YUMMO!

Amazing! Will definitely make this again! The kids loved this and so did my hubby. Not quite as crunchy as expected but still amazing! I cut the egg wash in half and it was more then enough. I figured I could make more if it were needed. Didn't want to waste the eggs.

I'm curious where the name "Double" Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts comes from. I thought at first I'd be frying them twice, or perhaps there would be two sources of crunchiness in the ingredients. I guess "double" just means "very" in this case. Either way, I'm excited to try it!

November 21, 2012 at 12:20 PM

Double refers to the fact that they are double dredged in the coating before frying.

Alison
November 26, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Sounds good, but that is a LOT of ginger and nutmeg! I think I would cut back on the spices (and leave out the nutmeg- not a fan). Also, a cup of honey is a lot (not to mention expensive!) Is there a way to cut that back too?

I'm making this tonight with peanut noodles and a salad with almonds and homemade Asian dressing. I think I'm going to try a mixture of flour, cornstarch, and panko and fry it in palm shortening. I'll also reduce the honey, we use raw and it's very strong. Looks great, can't wait!

I used this recipe for thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. I mixed the spices in with melted butter and basted the turkey pouring some of the mixture under the skin. Then I used the honey soy sauce glaze the last 30 min and poured it over entire turkey! It was the best turkey I've ever had.

Made this without the sage and nutmeg (didn't have it in my spice collection) and I must say it was still delicious! I served mine with peas. I did have a problem with the crust coming off...so next time I'll have to use the above mentioned cake flower suggestion :)

My family loved this! I added crushed corn flakes to the 2nd coat of flour for extra crispness! So good!

Just curious... Do you leave on the skin of the chicken breasts or remove it?

Made this tonight and it was great. But think I will half the nutmeg next time, it was really strong for me, but I m not a huge fan of nutmeg either..

Use skinless chicken Jade.

FYI for those on Weight Watchers.. This recipe is 10 points if you have half a chicken breast--so the entire recipe would have 8 servings with 1 pound of chicken. A little too high for me for a regular meal, but not horrible if I wanted a splurge meal. Looks delicious! Will try it out sometime! :)

Love this recipe. I made chicken fingers. My family loves these. It is a quick and easy recipe. I did find for the strips the salt level a little too much and so was the cayenne pepper for my youngsters.

great and easy sauce. Please store only portion of flour mix that hasn't actually touched the raw chicken. :)

I made this for my family last night and I seriously wish I would have doubled the amount I made! Probably THE best chicken I have ever had in my life. My whole family is counting down the days until I go grocery shopping and get the stuff to make it again!

Made this tonight. For almost the first time I actually followed a recipe exactly..Glad I did! this was perfect!!!! Only change is that I bought my chicken breast already butterfly cut. I also only made half of the flour mix. The seasoning and everything is great. The sauce is yummy. The trick to using canola oil and getting crispy exterior is to be patient and let the oil get hot,slowly. Also follow everything before judging!! Thank you. This was good!

This photo looks amazing! Cannot wait to try out the recipe!

Oh man this recipe was fantastic! I double-crusted my chicken. Gave a tiny bit more heat, once the crust had turned golden, I pulled it out of the oil and directly into the flour mixture, then back into the oil to finish cooking. Put it on a bed of brown rice sprinkled with green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Great!

Made this last night! Best chicken I have ever made! Everyone went on and on about how good it was. I followed the advise from others and used the Panko. Only little thing I will change next time I make it, is to cut down on the cayenne pepper. It was a little to spicy for my two three year olds. All in all a great amazing recipe and one I will FOR SURE be making again.

This turned out very good. The combination of spices seemed a strange mix to me, especially the amount of nutmeg, but I followed it exactly. I did find the nutmeg flavor to be a little strong so I would probably reduce it to 1-2 tsp next time, but overall my family enjoyed it very much.

March 2, 2013 at 5:36 PM

Made this tonight for the first time! I used oat flour instead of all purpose, but it still turned out delicious. I didn't have all of the spices, so I played around with whatever I had here. Served with brown basmati rice and oven roasted green beans. I'll definitely use this one again!

This is so great! Just made it for dinner - even my picky little sister loved it! I halved the cayenne, though, and baked instead of frying. Not as crispy, but still so good!

March 11, 2013 at 7:24 PM

Finally got to make this tonight and OMG it was soooo good!! A new favorite for us! I used about a quarter cup panko to a cup and a half flour and worked out good! And that sauce!!!Couldn't get enough. I served this with creamy parmesean pasta salad and corn and worked for us :) Thank you for sharing this recipe and I'm going to do the same :)

I tried this recipe but I breaded the chicken in panko bread crumbs with the seasonings instead. It made it VERY crispy and my boyfriend and I just raved about it. It's one of our favorite recipes and we keep it in the back of our minds for an easy weeknight recipe.

I just made this today and it was really good. I dumped some panko crumbs in with the flour/spice mixture and it worked great. Since I had so much, I did some shrimp too. Mmmmm!!! The sauce was good but I was expecting something a little different but not sure what. I will probably revise the sauce a little the next time I make this.

April 22, 2013 at 8:20 AM

My chicken breast in thick! Would it still cook all the way through? I am worried about that... I wanted to make this today but noticed thee chicken in the picture is pretty thin.

April 22, 2013 at 8:42 AM

The recipe does give instructions on how to pound the chicken out to the proper thickness. You can also cut them to half thickness if you like.

April 22, 2013 at 9:29 PM

This was quite simple and turned out great. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Made this 8 months ago, and have made once a month since then. It gets DEVOURED, never leftovers. Company keeps picking at leftovers til its gone. I pour sauce in creamer dish and serve at table so each person can control teh sweetness on each piece of chicken. So worth the effort. SO AMAZING!!!

June 15, 2013 at 3:59 PM

is there a way i can d this in the oven? i have been looking for a good "foux" fried chicken. and this sounds DELISH!

June 16, 2013 at 12:04 PM

I'll try a baked version soon to see how it turns out.

I made this chicken for dinner last night. I used 4 Big chicken breasts and I cut those in half thickness wise! Then I flattened them some more. I had a lot of chicken and I fed a family of 5 last night! I whole family LOVED it!! The kids kept on going back to get more and more chicken!! We only have about 4 little pieces left over! I made it with mashed yellow potatoes with the skin on and cesaer salad (with home made cesaer dressing). It was the perfect dinner! Will be making again some time in the future for sure! Thank you :)!!

Since my husband won't eat chicken breasts, only thighs, I'm going to do this with boneless skinless thighs, as well as the breasts. It sounds incredible!

July 31, 2013 at 6:27 PM

So...I have made this 3 times now since I discovered it. And can I just say that this might be my new favorite recipe ever!? Although the only thing I changed was that instead of putting the sauce on the chicken, I threw in some corn starch to thicken it and use it as a dipping sauce. It's kind of amazing. :D

November 3, 2013 at 11:26 PM

It was awesome1 My new favorite dish. I didn't use the sage (not a fan) and I cooked it in peanut oil and it was perfect. Served with rice and chopped Asian salad.

November 22, 2013 at 6:13 PM

Very good! Next time I will cut the chicken into strips and do a corn starch dredge first for extra crispiness. Also let sauce thicken more so it coats the chicken better. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

Made this for the first time today.....Loved it ...I did cut down the ginger and sage but it was delicious. And the sauce was the coup de gra... my fiance was very impressed.

I made this and very good, My daughter is coming come and I wanted to know if I can bake them and freeze for later. Please let me know. Thanks

December 7, 2013 at 1:25 PM

Really not sure that would work. I've never tried it and I'd worry about drying out the cooked chicken especially if reheating it from frozen. I can't see the crispiness being preserved well ether.

December 18, 2013 at 11:07 PM

Loved the chicken gonna try it with shrimp tonight!

This was delish. We served it over waffles as an Asian version of a Southern classic.

January 16, 2014 at 9:56 AM

I am just wondering if I could substitute with maple syrup. I have some honey allergies in the family and this looks delish!

January 16, 2014 at 8:56 PM

I've never used it but I think maple syrup is well worth a try.

This is a staple recipe in my home… both for chicken and pork… along with many other recipes from your web site. As someone who has recently turned to a gluten free diet this was one thing I was very sad to let go of… being gluten free you definitely miss that breaded coating on so many of your favorites. I attempted to substitute the flour for Robin Hood Gluten free flour and it made little to no difference in the result!!!! This is an amazing option for those who are Gluten free!!!! Exceptional recipe :)

Awesome dish...family loved it! Thanks for sharing.

We just made and DESTROYED this dish! It was so amazingly delicious! I would have like to have cooked the glaze a bit longer to make it thicker, ours was quite runny. This really was so good. My husband, who dislikes white meat, ate two helpings. Well done! Thanks for the great addition to our recipe collection.
