A simple chicken dish made with only six main ingredients and ready in twenty minutes. Pieces of chicken in a light and crispy tempura batter, fried to perfection and coated with a sweetened honey sauce.

This incredible recipe for Chinese Honey Chicken will have you skip the Chinese takeout. It’s pretty straightforward with only a few simple ingredients. I realized how restaurants did a great job tricking us with how intimidating this dish is because of its light and crispy and sweet taste. But the truth is it’s so simple to throw together and the result is as good if not better.

4 large Egg whites

3/4 c cornstarch (or Mochiko Sweet Rice Flour)
