Ingredients

Coat crispy fried chicken with sweet and spicy hot honey
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional
  • 2 pounds chicken pieces
  • peanut oil, for frying (minimum 3 cups or 24 ounces)
  • cups self-rising flour
  • Hot Honey
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (plus additional as you prefer)
  • salt, to taste
  • Chef notes

    One of my all-time favorite flavor combinations is mixing sweet with heat. The sugary notes and spicy sensations keep your taste buds on their toes with every intriguing bite. When you add this amazing blend to juicy, crispy fried chicken, it's truly a magical experience.

    Preparation

    For the fried chicken:

    1.

    Combine the yogurt and salt. Add the chicken and coat. Place in the fridge for at least an hour or up to overnight if you have time.

    2.

    When you are ready to cook, bring the oil up to 350-400 F (if you don't have a thermometer just stick a chopstick in and if bubbles form around it but is not boiling, it is hot enough).

    3.

    Dredge the chicken in the flour and then add to the pan. Cook for 6-10 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is 155 F internal temperature (if you don't have a thermometer, I would do 6-8 minutes for drumsticks and 8-10 minutes thighs).

    For the hot honey:

    While the chicken is cooking, combine the honey and hot sauce.

    To serve:

    Remove the chicken from the pan, add a dash of salt and then drizzle the hot honey on top. Serve hot.
