Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the Chicken

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

To Make the Sauce

  • Add all sauce ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until starting to thicken. Set aside until all the chicken is done.

To Make the Chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry. To a shallow dish add the flour. Whisk the eggs together in a second dish and put the breadcrumbs into a third. To bread the chicken coat it first with flour, then with eggs and finally with breadcrumbs. (For a more thorough tutorial on how to correctly bread chicken to give it a nice crispy coating check out this post.
  • Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium high heat. Add oil and cook the chicken in batches for 6-8 minutes or until golden and crispy on the outside and cooked through on the inside.

To Assemble

  • Add all the cooked chicken into the pan and pour the sauce over it. Toss until everything is coated and the sauce has thickened to a syrupy consistency.
