Hot Honey Garlic Chicken


1 pound chicken tenderloins

2 cups buttermilk

hot sauce

Dry Mix:

2 cups all purpose flour

onion powder, to taste

garlic, powder, to taste

cajun seasoning, to taste

Hot Honey:

1 cup raw honey

1 tablespoons red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon cayenne

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

6 cloves garlic, smashed

1 jalapeno, sliced


  1. In a bowl, combine the buttermilk and hot sauce (as much as you want!). Coat the chicken and set aside for 30 min- 2 hours.

  2. In another bowl, add the flour and season to taste.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the honey, red pepper, vinegar, garlic, and cayenne; bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and remove the crushed garlic and jalapeno slices.

  4. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F; remove each piece of chicken from the buttermilk and let the excess drip off, dredge in the flour and repeat. Once all of the chicken is double-battered; fry in batches for 7-10 minutes (internal temp should be 165 degrees F)

  5. Drain on paper towels and toss in the hot honey!
