Honey Pecan Chicken Recipe




  • 3 lb of chicken pieces (thats about 8 peices of thighs and legs)
  • 4 c buttermilk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 c self rising flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • oil for frying
  • 3/4 c honey
  • 2 stick (1 cup) butter
  • 1/2 c pecans, coarsely chopped
  • Preparation:
    1. 1.Place the buttermilk and eggs in a 9x13 baking dish and mix. Place the chicken into the buttermilk dish. With a spoon cover the tops of chicken with the buttermilk mixture. Set out for at least an hour flipping the chicken once after 30 min. You can also leave this in the fridge covered over night too for extra flavor and tenderness.
    2. 2. Combine all the dry ingredients together in a baking dish. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture and fry in the fryer for 12-14 minutes or deep skillet for 6-7 minutes on each side at 350 without crowding.
    3. 3. Meanwhile while chicken is frying, melt the butter in a small sauce pan over med-heat . Pour in the honey and mix together with the butter. Place the pecans in the mix and bring to a boil on med heat and then quickly reduce to a simmer on low for 8-10 minutes mixing occasionally. Keep an eye on this because you don't want it to caramelize. Take off stove and set aside till all chicken is done frying.

    5. When chicken is done frying drain it on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer drained chicken onto a serving platter and drizzle the honey pecan glaze all over the chicken. Enjoy!
