Always looking for a new way to make chicken? Well, here's an old Southern favorite made a new way, with the sweetness of honey and the tang of paprika and mustard.

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 chicken (2-1/2 to 3 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 1/4 cup biscuit baking mix
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying

What to Do

  1. Place honey in a shallow bowl; coat chicken with honey and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients except oil in a shallow pie plate; dredge chicken in mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch oil until hot. Carefully place chicken in oil and cook about 5 minutes, or until underside of chicken is golden. Turn chicken pieces and cook an additional 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until juices run clear. Remove chicken and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Although the taste was different in a good way, I had trouble with the batter not staying on the chicken. I had to continually scrape the stuff off the bottom of the pan.

why cant i print any of these recipes.. i can print anything else but not your recipes.

Would this work well if using bonless skinless chicken breasts?

If I were making this, I would add a little lime juice to the honey. Instead of baking mix, I'd use flour seasoned with poultry seasoning, cayenne pepper and garlic and, after dipping chicken in honey, I'd dredge the chicken in seasoned flour, then in milk (or buttermilk for added flavor) then in flour mixture again and deep-fry. If it's done this way, DEFINITELY deep-fry the chicken for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown . . . oil for deep frying should be 350 degrees, btw

I don't understand why you had to tell us what you would do to this recipe. You did not submit it so you should just rate it on its own merit, NOT what YOU would do with it or else you should have submitted it. Don't dis a recipe if you change it to suit your needs.

Personally, I like to read how someone else would "tweak" a recipe! I liked what she had to say, and I even have added it to the recipe. I found her tips to be most helpful! I often do this when copying a Mr. Food recipe. Nothing ventured nothing gained!

Once you brown the chicken in the hot oil could you finish cooking it the oven ??

That would solve the sticking problem, and you would be able to control how done you want it. Will make this shorty!!!

you can also fry the chickenand then use honey as a dipping type sauce. our family like it this way when we have to get take out

i had a difficult time with this recipe. As i pan fried the chicken, the honey seemed to ooze out and burn. Couldn't get an even browning. I had to scrape off the burnt honey. I think next time I will not dip the chicken in honey, just do the biscuit baking mix and then poor honey once the chicken is browned and then bake in oven.

One could also replace the biscuit baking mix with Panko Breading for a more crispier crust

Thank you so much! My mom and I watched Mr. food on t.v. The Honey fried chicken is our favorite.

I will be deep frying mine!! Sounds DELISH!!

Sounds good. I'll have to try it since my husband loves honey.
