I am pretty sure by now I have probably told you a million times that I love chinese food but I am going to tell you again: I LOOOOOVE CHINESE FOOD, it is honestly the only takeaway food I ever crave, but over the last few months everytime I have ordered it (which is probably only a handful of times if that) I end up feeling pretty disappointed with it, which has led to even more attempts at fakeaway recipes and we all know how much I love to make a fakeaway.

This honey and garlic chicken is kind of a cross between chinese food and the Jack Daniels sesame chicken strips from TGI Fridays but it is so good. It is probably not that healthy because it is fried but hey, we can’t be good all of the time. This recipe is so easy that you will have it ready before it would have even be delivered if you had ordered it.

In a bowl combine the flour and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the bowl and coat in the flour.


In a frying pan, heat the oil on a medium to high heat. Once the oil is hot add the chicken.


Cook for around 5-10 mins depending on the size of the chicken pieces (to check it is cooked through you can cut the biggest piece of chicken in half) when they are cooked remove them from the pan and place onto kitchen roll to dry.


While the chicken is on the kitchen roll, place a medium saucepan over a low to medium heat and add the garlic, spring onion, soy sauce, chinese five spice, sriracha and honey and stir continuously until everything is combined and the mixture is warmed through


Place the chicken into a large mixing bowl and our over the sauce. Shake the chicken so it is coated in the sauce. Plate this with your choice of sides (I made parsnip fries and salad) and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. There you have it your fakeaway chinese food.
