Honey Chicken

by Milisa on July 23, 2014

Honey Chicken is a delicious comfort food meal from Southern Living Country Music’s Greatest Eats. 

Honey Chicken Recipe from Miss in the KitchenWhen Southern Living’s Country Music’s Greatest Eats showed up on my doorstep, I was tearing open the package immediately.  Southern food is my thing and I’m a huge country music fan.  I knew this was going to be jam packed with delicious, southern family recipes and it is!

It took me forever to narrow it down to a recipe to share with you and this Honey Chicken comes from The Henningsens, best known for their hit “American Beautiful”.   The batter-fried chicken with a delicious honey dipping sauce is my kind of comfort food!

Honey Chicken from Miss in the KitchenLet me tell you there are lots of fabulous country foods in this cookbook that aren’t deep fried.  There are fabulous main dish salads, baby back ribs, pasta dishes, vegetarian dishes and desserts of every sort.  I am going to have to try Miranda Lambert’s Mama’s Meatloaf.  With a combination of pork sausage and ground beef with a sweet ketchup topping, you know it’s gotta be good.  I just love Miranda Lambert, so spunky but so down to earth.  She was at the walmarts not too far from here helping people adopt dogs a while back.

I also can’t wait to try the Serrano Pepper Burgers from Florida Georgia Line.  Like I said, lots of great recipes along with family stories from some of the best in country music.

Honey chicken is my kiddos favorite thing to order when we get take-out. The sweet honey and salty soy sauce is a wonderful combination.
