  • If you love PF Changs Honey Chicken, you’ll love this homemade version.
  • This recipe comes together quickly by tossing fried chicken (or shrimp) with honey sauce. In this recipe, we fry chicken in a pan and add ginger and a touch of heat to create a flavorful honey sauce. Serve next to fried rice, steamed vegetables, or flavorful stir-fried bok choy.

honey chicken ingredients

chicken – Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are popular, but boneless, skinless chicken thighs can be used as well. To make it even faster, you can also chop rotisserie scraps or leftover chicken, heat them in a little broth, and add them to the sauce.

Honey sauce – Honey adds sweetness to this recipe, and a little ginger and garlic add flavor. Sriracha is a bit exciting!

Garnish – Adding chili paste to green onions, sesame seeds, or even toasted and crushed peanuts make delicious garnishes.

Serve honey chicken with rice, cauliflower rice, fried rice, or stir-fried vegetables.

How to make honey chicken

  1. Season the chicken, sprinkle with cornstarch, and brown in a skillet.
  2. Mix the sauce ingredients according to the recipe below and simmer in a frying pan.
  3. Toss with chicken and garnish with green onions.

Exchange with variations

  • Swap – Add red pepper flakes instead of Sriracha. Add 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder instead of garlic. Fresh ginger works best in this recipe, but you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger if desired.
  • Don’t have chicken breast? Use shrimp, pork tenderloin, or chicken thighs.
  • Add peppers, onions, or pineapple chunks.
