Tips for making Crispy Honey Garlic Chicken

Here are a few points to remember when making Crispy Honey Garlic Chicken:

  • To make the chicken ultra-crispy, you can use breadcrumbs and coat the chicken with it as well.
  • Although frying chicken is quick, it means a lot of oil. So, you can cut some oil by baking or air frying the chicken.
  • You can add more spices to this dish and make it more flavorsome and spicy.
