Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

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 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.

Baked Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken

The Baked Version!

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.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Asian Inspired
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Barry C. Parsons
  • 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
  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 so divide the batch and store 1/2 in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. I always like to make enough for next time...and there's always a next time with this recipe.
  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.
  1. Follow the recipe exactly as for the fried version but while you are preparing the chicken, heat a baking sheet in a 425F degree oven. Preheating the pan does 2 things; it prevents the chicken from sticking to the pan and it ensures that the heat from the oven starts going directly into the crust on the chicken to make sure it becomes crispy.
  2. Dip all your chicken pieces and coat as instructed. As you finish individual pieces, lay them out on a lightly floured cutting board while you finish getting them all ready.
  3. When the pieces are all ready, take the hot pan from the oven and lightly oil the bottom of the baking pan with canola oil or other vegetable oil. Use only enough to coat the bottom of the pan.
  4. Working as quickly as possible, transfer the chicken pieces to the oiled pan. Do not crowd the pieces together. They should NOT touch each other or they will steam and not get crispy. Leave at least an inch of space between all pieces.
  5. Lightly spray the tops of the chicken pieces with vegetable oil. I recommend that you have a spray bottle filled with canola oil to use in any oven fried recipe for chicken, including this one. A simple pump bottle will do. Spraying the tops helps them start to get crispy in the hot oven too.
  6. Maintain the heat at 425 degrees F and place baking sheet in the oven. I use the second lowest rack in my oven.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes without opening the door! Take the pan out of the oven and flip all of the chicken pieces over.
  8. Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes until the chicken pieces brown nicely and become crispy. Again don't open the door, maintaining a hot oven is important for this method.
  9. Dip the baked pieces in the sauce as usual and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

For a gluten free option, try substituting rice flour for the white flour.

      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 too used half corn starch… Mine were very crunchy and perfect… maybe a little less ginger it was UP FRONT 😉

      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!!

    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!

    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!

    • Tara May 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm - Reply

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

    • Excellen May 14, 2012 at 2:52 pm - Reply

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

    • Noreen McPhail November 4, 2015 at 2:56 am - Reply

      A perfect oil for this is Avacado Oil has high temp.. Olive oil burns easier..

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

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

      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 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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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?

  71. Barry C. Parsons October 19, 2012 at 11:25 am - Reply

    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.

    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!

  81. Barry C. Parsons November 21, 2012 at 3:20 pm - Reply

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

    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?

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 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.

      Making this for 22 would be a huge challenge. Your chicken would likely get soggy and since it is so thinly cut may dry out trying to recrisp it. It’s not a recipe I would choose for that many people.

    I mainly use peanut oil for any breaded chicken product. It burns hotter, and adds great crispness. I prefer cutting a breast in half with recipes like this. I would go a little hotter and faster without over cooking it. Look forward to it.

      That doesn’t really work in my experience. Anything fried needs to be served immediately to retain it’s crunchiness in my opinion. If you do choose to fry it first, don’t dunk it in the sauce until fully reheated.

    Awesome recipe. I made the fried version once before and it was good, but I made a few changes and tried the baked version. I reduced the amount of certain spices, last time I felt there was more than is necessary. I dipped the chicken in the seasoned flour, then egg wash, and then plain Panko bread crumbs. Then I baked it on a wire rack in the oven to make sure it didn’t get soggy. The last change I made was using 1/2 cup of soy sauce rather than 1/4 cup. I felt the honey was too strong in the original recipe. My family loved this baked version.

    I’m kind of in a post-pig out fugue right now 🙂 Oh my gosh, that was soooo good. You know when you are eating something that is over the top and you are so focused on the taste…that’s me with this recipe!!! Holy Hanna…I did tweak it a bit out of necessity. I had boneless skinless thighs which I slightly pounded out and I followed another reviewer’s suggestion about 1/2 cornstarch and 1/2 flour. I also let them sit on a cooling rack before I fried them…yes I fried…couldn’t help myself altho I will try the oven baked version next time (maybe). I had a lot of thighs so I’ve got all these leftovers…will they make it into the kids’ lunches (as promised) tomorrow…have to wait and see….

    Made this the other day. The only thing I will do differently next time is to cut the chicken pieces into nugget sizes, otherwise this is a delicious recipe and I highly recommend!

    this looks wonderful, but is this spicy. if not how can this be more spicy?

      No it isn’t spicy but you could add crushed chili paste (sambal) to the sauce as it cooks.

    Do you know if I can replace the flour with coconut flour?

    • Barry C. Parsons August 19, 2016 at 1:18 pm - Reply

      I’ve never used coconut flour but i have known folks who used rice flour as a gluten free substitute.

    I used the baked version on some tilapia the other night. Baked at 375 for 8 min. Perfect.

    I have never before left a recipe review but…. This was easy and I am a so-so cook. It was delicious. Stress free too! The sauce is the bomb and I could just eat it with a bowl of rice. It is soooo good!!! Thank you!!!!

    Is this recipe using American or English tablespoon measure? ie. 15ml or 20ml?

    Can I prepare the chicken the night before I want to fry them up?

    • Barry C. Parsons November 14, 2016 at 4:03 pm - Reply

      I don’t recommend that. You’re really only saving a couple of minutes and the coating will likely not stick properly.

    Really good and packed with flavour! I baked mine and it was fantastic! I didn’t have any sage so I subbed with a bit more thyme (I’m a newbie in the kitchen and it was one of the only substitutes I had in my pantry) and it was wonderful. Would definitely make again. Not something I’d make all the time though because it’s a bit more work than what I’m used to, but I will definitely remake this dish in the future!

    Just Made this as I wasn’t sure I halved the recipe for the flour. I should have went with the full recipe as this is fantastic. I highly recommend this.
