Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

4  large boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin

Sift Together:
2 cup flour

4 tsp. salt

4 tsp. black pepper

2 T. ground ginger

1 T. ground nutmeg

2 tsp. ground thyme

2 tsp. ground sage

2 T. paprika

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

NOTE: This flour and spice dredge mix is sufficient for two batches of this chicken recipe. You can store the leftover mix in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for the next time you make this recipe.
Make an egg wash by whisking together:
4 eggs

8 T. water
1.  Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then dip the meat in the flour and spice mixture. Dip the breast into the eggwash and then a final time into the flour and spice mix, pressing the mix into the meat to get good contact.
2.  Heat a skillet on the stove with about a half inch of canola oil covering the bottom. You will want to carefully regulate the temperature here so that the chicken does not brown too quickly. The thinness of the breast meat practically guarantees that it will be fully cooked by the time the outside is browned. I find just below medium heat works well and fry them gently for about 4 or 5 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy.
3.  Drain on a wire rack for a couple of minutes before dipping the cooked breasts into the Honey Garlic Sauce. Serve with noodles or rice.

Honey Garlic Sauce:

2 T. olive oil

3 T. minced garlic
1 cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1.  In a medium sauce pan add the oil and garlic and cook over medium heat to soften the garlic.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer together for 5-10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Watch this carefully as it simmers because it can foam up over the pot very easily.
