Crispy Shredded Chicken with Chilli & Honey Sauce
The chicken in this crispy shredded chicken recipe can be used as a base for many different dishes. One of the best known is Salt and Chilli Chicken which you will find the recipe for here.
The chilli and honey sauce coats the chicken rather than being a wet sauce that flows around your plate. Given the choice of Salt and Chilli Chicken, which is a dry dish made using the same crispy chicken, I would choose this every time.
The sauce really compliments the chicken to perfection. You can choose to serve it on the side or coat the chicken with it like I did. The best thing about homemade food is you can adapt it to suit your own tastes. Crispy chicken also goes great with my basic Chinese curry sauce, you will find the recipe here. You can also simply use sweet chilli sauce from a jar if you prefer.
This chicken also goes great with a wrap with peppers, lettuce, spring onion and a sweet chilli mayonnaise which is made by mixing one part sweet chilli to 3 parts mayonnaise.
Drop the basket of your deep fat fryer then very carefully add each piece to the hot oil. Be careful of splashes! Cook for 5 – 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. There can be no pink at all, they must be white all the way though.
Cook in your preheated air fryer for 10-15 minutes until cooked through. There can be no pink bits, they must be white all the way through.
Place on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and bake for 10 -20 minutes turning halfway through. There must be no pink bits, they must be white all the way through when cooked.
