Chicken: We usually opt for boneless, skinless chicken thighs for a tender bite every time. You can also substitute chicken breasts and the dish will be just as good!

Chicken Coating: The chicken is coated in a seasoned flour mixture featuring all-purpose flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Pan-frying the chicken in olive oil creates a crispy, golden-brown exterior.

Honey Garlic Sauce: The sweet-savory honey garlic sauce is composed of honey, soy sauce, garlic, onion, white wine vinegar, and red pepper flakes for a subtle kick.

Red Pepper Flakes: Enjoy the gentle heat that comes from just a small amount of red pepper flakes. You can also customize the spice level to your preference by adding or omitting red pepper flakes.
