Spicy Honey Fried Chicken

by Edwan S. on Tue, September 03, 2013

This is our take on those succulent sweet ‘ayam madu’ much loved by briyani enthusiasts. Use small cuts of chicken so it fries faster or even boneless thighs or breasts. Then make a ridiculous honeyed spicy glaze using just a few ingredients for fried chicken that is pretty damn spectacular.

Glorious finger-licking fried chicken

Serves 2 - 3 people

Adjust the sweetness or spiciness to your liking by varying the amount of honey and/or chili used.

For a healthier (sort-of) variation, roast the chicken in an oven instead of deep frying it. This recipe also makes a nice BBQ!
