Ginger Chicken that is baked – not fried – then slathered in an amazing 5 minute glaze of honey, lemon ginger and garlic for better then Chinese takeout Chicken!
This Ginger Chicken with Honey Lemon Glaze is one of those meals that is so amazingly delicious I would love to eat its leftovers 7 days a week. But that would never happen because there are NEVER any leftovers of this tantalizing, sweet, tangy, ginger-kickin’ Honey Lemon Ginger Chicken!
And I don’t blame him when Sticky Honey Lemon Ginger Chicken means a sweet honey sauce with a splash of citrus and a slight zing from the fresh ginger smothering crispy, spiced and breaded baked chicken morsels. It is SO good, my sister-in-law texted me pictures of her family licking their plates clean! So this is officially “lick-the-plate-delicious!” Chinese chicken!
How to make Honey Lemon Ginger Chicken
I used my favorite technique for breading this Ginger Chicken as in my Skinny General Tso’s Chicken and spiced the flour/cornstarch breading with with ginger, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and paprika (the paprika is why the chicken is slightly red) then baked and broiled until crispy. Every bit as delicious as fried – even more delicious.
Add the sticky lemon ginger sauce to the breaded ginger chicken…
And mix, and keep mixing, even when it doesn’t look like the sauce will cover…
It will…its honey lemon ginger deliciousness will stick and coat every crevice of chicken.
Sometimes sticky is a good thing…
Aka so amazingly delicious there will never be any leftovers of this Ginger Chicken!
