Poultry Essentials: Spicy Honey Chicken Drizzle
Andy Anderson !
I made this honey drizzle for our Derby party. It went perfectly with my homemade Kentucky fried chicken. My only problem was that I needed to make more.
FYI: Once again, I picked the wrong horse :-(
This recipe has all the sweet goodness of honey, along with tart flavor-notes, and a bit of heat.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
1/2 cfresh clover honey
1 Tbspkentucky bourbon
1 Tbsphot sauce, i prefer frank’s
2 tspapple cider vinegar
1/4 tspcrushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tspsalt, kosher variety, fine grind
3 - 4fresh mint leaves for that “derby” essence
How to Make Poultry Essentials: Spicy Honey Chicken Drizzle
- Storage of homemade condiments and spices
Because homemade spices and condiments do not contain any preservatives, it is important to store them properly. Non-reactive (glass) containers with tight-fitting lids are a must. If I am making a dry spice, I love to use old spice bottles that I have run through the dishwasher.
If I am doing homemade sauces, I love using Weck jars. They are all glass, come in all sizes and shapes, and have excellent leakproof lids. If you shop online, you can go to Amazon, and type in “Weck Jars” and you will find a ton of them.
Dry spices should be kept in a cool space, away from sunlight (spice cabinet), and sauces, in most cases, should be stored in the fridge.
If properly stored, this honey drizzle should last 3 - 4 weeks at room temperature, or several months if stored in the fridge.
If storing in the fridge, always bring up to room temperature before using.
- Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
