Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts. Rock Recipes NUMBER ONE recipe of all time. There is a very good reason why this recipe has been seen millions of times online!
Do these honey garlic 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.
It very quickly grew to be the most popular recipe ever on Rock Recipes with just over 117,000 views to date. (2017 update: now several million times!)
It has been among the most commented upon and possibly the most raved about a recipe I have ever posted too. And for very good reason.
t 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. They declared 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. 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.
I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.
Because the chicken breasts are pounded out to a 1/2 inch thickness, they fry up even faster than the pork chops. But they still provide 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. A few sautéed vegetables on the side and you have 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.
DOUBLE CRUNCH HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN, THE BAKED VERSION.
Folks kept asking if this recipe could be baked and not fried. So we finally decided to test a baked version to see if we could make it work.
I had every reason to believe this would still be great as an unfried, fat reduced version. After all, we have quite a number of baked crispy wing recipes.
The result was not in the least bit disappointing. It was still crisp and delicious. Spouse said she prefers it baked to fried.
She also hates being the person to do fat frying when preparing dinner. She mostly leaves that up to me. However, this version suits her style of cooking more…and maybe yours too.
Check out the detailed instructions in the recipe below.
