Food Brings You Home: Molecular Honey Chicken and Waffles
Why I Love This Recipe
I'm a home cook that can really get the job done. I get so bored with the same old mundane food and I feel like my family deserves more. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the smiles of friends and family when I have the opportunity to cook for them. I'm a soldier so I'm away from home quite frequently so in the rare opportunity to be home food means a lot to me and is a great way to convey my love.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 chicken breasts
1 c pickle juice
Salt, Pepper, Knorr Chicken Bouillon
1/2 c honey, plus 1 tbsp
1/3 c water, plus 1 tbsp
1 gram Agar-Agar
1 tall glass of vegetable oil, chilled in freezer 30 minutes
1/4 c mustard
1/4 c maple syrup
1/2 tsp sriracha
Oil to fry chicken
The night before you start, butterfly your chicken breast then cut in quarters.
Soak chicken breast in pickle juice over night.
The next day prepare a seasoned flour mixture with salt, pepper and a touch of Knorr chicken bouillon.
Dredge chicken straight from bag to flour and set on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Follow the instruction on your waffle mix, then start making waffles.
As waffles are cooking, fry your chicken thoroughly.
Heat 1/2 c honey, 1/3 c water and Agar Agar in a sauce pan until boiling.
Place honey mixture into a coffee mug and set aside.
While honey cools, take a tall glass and pour in vegetable oil to 3/4 full.
Place glass in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Continue to make waffles and fry chicken breast quarters until finished.
Once 30 minutes have passed, using a dropper, drop honey mixture into the chilled oil.
This will create honey caviar beads.
Heat 1 tbsp each honey and water until it incorporates.
Strain caviar with wire mesh and rinse with water.
Place caviar in honey/water mixture.
Cut green onion long and place in a bowl of ice water to curl.
Plate your waffles with chicken on top.
Mix Mustard, maple syrup and sriracha and spoon sauce on top of the chicken and waffles.
Top with green onion then a spoon of honey caviar.
