Fried Chicken with Honey Pecan Sauce

Kathy Griffin


The other night we saw a commercial and they said something about honey with fried chicken. Well this made Joe want to try it. I remembered that Paula Deen had done a recipe with a honey & pecan glaze so I used her basic recipe for the sauce but I fried my chicken the way I always do. So that is what I would suggest if you want to try this, just fry it the way you want. Oh and I also decided this sauce would be soooo soooo great over ice cream ( ***I will include my fried chicken recipe)
