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)
1In a bowl add buttermilk, eggs and garlic powder, beat together well. Add chicken pieces and let sit for a few minutes while you are getting the other things ready.
2In a gallon ziploc bag add flour, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Take chicken pieces from buttermilk, hold over bowl for a second and let drain some, place a few pieces at a time in bag and shake to coat chicken well, place on a wire rack, continue to coat all the chicken in flour and place on rack to let the flour dry for a few minutes.
3Heat oil ( enough to go half way up skillet) to about 375. Place chicken in hot oil and cook until golden and done about 6 minutes each side( until chicken reaches an internal temp of 165).Place on a wire rack or paper towels to drain.
4In a medium sauce pan melt the butter, add the honey and pecans and bring to a slight boil. Let cool a few minutes then spoon over chicken
