Honey Garlic Fried Chicken

Ingredients:
4-6 chicken breasts butterflied or cut in half, or pieces
Frying oil

Marinade:
2 Cups Honey
1 cup water
2 cloves fresh garlic

Breading:
2 cups Panko bread crumbs
2 cups bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1 tb paprika
1 tb oregano

2 eggs (whisked well)
2 cups flour

Start by marinating chicken breasts with honey, water and garlic in a bag in the refrigerator for 4 hours (preferably overnight). Drain well and discard, then pat breasts dry. Keep cool while making breading. Heat oil to 375ºF. Starting with flour, douse the breasts and then move them to the egg mixture. Next, douse again in panko mixture. Once evenly coated, start to fry one or two breasts at a time until internal temperature reaches 165 and they are golden brown. Let cool and enjoy warm. Store in aluminum foil in fridge.

Goes great with Chardonnay and a freshly picked salad from your Greeneville Farmer’s Market!
