Honey Chicken

Honey Chicken... just like the Chinese Takeaway...

Honey Chicken


Moist cubes of chicken, coated in batter and soaked in honey!


Yes it is gluten, dairy and egg free and is low chemical and failsafe


Firstly cube your chicken breast
Roll in a small amount of rice flour

Dip in your batter
(use the battered fish recipe which will be found in my recipe book: Kersten's Kitchen)

Drop pieces in hot sunflower or canola oil
Cook until golden and drain on paper towel

Warm some Rice Malt Syrup in the microwave for a few seconds (until thin and runny)
Pour over your chicken pieces and toss to coat evenly

Honey Chicken Method

Serve with rice and a vegetable stir fry
(a failsafe recipe can be found in Kersten's Kitchen recipe book)


  1. would maple syrup work instead of Rice Malt I still can't seem to find any in NZ

    1. yes it should work... Maple has a stronger flavour though. If you can have sugar, maybe golden syrup would be a good alternative too.

    2. Sounds delicious Kersten, will definitely give this one a try!! :) Regarding the Rice Malt.... just found a site called and they sell a product called Ceres Organics Rice Syrup, I am guessing it is probably the same as the Rice Malt Syrup we have here in Oz??? OR have you tried contacting Jenny Tresize at She might be able to organise shipping to NZ??
