  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl; add chicken and toss to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat; add the chicken a few pieces at a time; fry until golden and no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  3. Discard all but 2 tablespoons oil from the skillet and return to heat. Cook the ginger in the oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the honey and cook another 1 minute. Whisk together the water, lemon juice, cornstarch, chili sauce, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl; mix into the honey and ginger; bring to a boil. Add the chicken to the sauce and stir to coat; cook until the chicken is heated through, about 3 minutes. Fold the green onions into the mixture and cook 1 minute more. Serve hot.

Really great recipe. I used sliced chicken breasts, chili oil, and added a little extra honey and ginger. I also added some cashew nuts as well. The heat from the chili was just right and the h...

This is awesome, but make sure to use sriracha or another spicy type of chili sauce. I used a sweet Asian chili sauce, and it was still good, but with the honey and the other sweet flavors, I th...

I didn't care for the sauce- it was sweet ,gooey and overpowered by the chili sauce.
