There is this amazing restaurant here in Chicago called Honey Butter Fried Chicken.
They do fried chicken served with honey butter.
This is an amazing combo. I never thought it could be so good. It is like heavenly.
Now I know I cannot go out and eat there every few nights. We would become poor and fried chicken is not the greatest thing for you. Taste wise it is the greatest thing for you.
So armed with my taste knowledge of honey butter I knew I had to be making some for our “fried” chicken nights. ( I bake my chicken in olive oil instead of pan frying. Perfect crispiness and still taste great)
I used Kerrygold butter for this honey butter. I wanted something of a higher quality. I wanted the taste to be just right.
I let the butter sit out to get room temperature. Using my stand mixer I whipped the butter till creamy smooth and then added about 4 table spoons of honey.
I used clover honey but I am sure orange honey or some other flavoring would be great. Maybe cranberry honey for thanksgiving. Noms!
Beat until fully combined.
I stored mine in tiny mason jars. One jar is for us and the other jar is for some friends who also love the honey butter fried chicken.
Look at those tiny specks of delicious honey!
2 Sticks high quality butter at room temperature
4 Tablespoons honey (or more depending on your sweetness level)
Beat room temperature butter till fluffy. Add in honey. Beat till fully combined.
Store in covered container in the refrigerator.
Enjoy that stuff on everything! I am tempted to make corn bread just for this honey butter.
