Honey Fried Chicken


This honey fried chicken has been a favorite in my family for many years. We first had it at a small restaurant in New England and wanted to try to make it ourselves; I think we came very close! Hope you enjoy it!

Prep Time:
30 mins
Cook Time:
40 mins
Total Time:
1 hr 10 mins


  • 1 (4 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • ½ cup honey

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 packet chicken bouillon granules

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying


  1. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper, then coat each seasoned chicken piece with honey.

  2. In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the garlic powder, chicken bouillon granules, and flour. Dredge honey-coated chicken pieces in flour mixture, coating completely.

  3. Fill a large, heavy skillet with oil to a depth of 1 inch. Heat over medium-high heat.

  4. Fry until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
