Hot Honey Garlic Chicken

Hot Honey Garlic Chicken
This honey hot chicken makes a delicious main dish, salad topper, or chicken sandwich. The spicy honey sauce is super easy and adds so much flavor to the chicken! Reheats really well the next day.


  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • avocado oil (spray)
  • ■■■■ SAUCE: ■■■■■
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot Sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Prep time:
10 minutes
Cook time:
25 minutes
Total time:
35 minutes
Yield: 5 servings | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 25 minutes | Total time: 35 minutes


1. Preheat oven to 400F (200C). I use my Cuisinart AirFryer Toaster Oven (air fry mode), if you have one, you don't need to preheat.
2. Cut chicken breasts in halves horizontally to make them thinner (larger breasts can be also cut vertically, to get 4 fillets). Place chicken fillets between two sheets of plastic wrap, or inside a sealable plastic bag. Slightly pound with a meat mallet for even thickness (this allows chicken to cook quickly and evenly).

3. Place eggs and a teaspoon of water into a shallow bowl, lightly beat with a fork.
4. On a large plate, mix together almond flour, paprika, salt and pepper.
5. Place tapioca starch onto a separate plate.
6. Dredge each chicken piece in tapioca starch, then dip in the egg mixture, and finally dredge in almond flour. Place on a baking sheet (preferably the one with wire rack). When all pieces are ready, lightly spray or drizzle with avocado oil.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165F (74C).

8. While the chicken is baking, prepare the sauce. Add honey, hot sauce and garlic powder to a small skillet, bring to a boil, stir and turn off the heat.
9. Dip each chicken piece in the sauce and serve.

never thought about eating a chicken that taste sweet but it tasted awesome. I thought it will not suit my taste but still, I made it to try and it was a great fit for my tongue. I made more and made sandwiches with them, they tasted super well in it too.

Thank you, Kenny. The flavor of this sweet and hot chicken is unique and really good. Glad that you liked it! - Alena
