Wow, to make Honey Barbecue Chicken Strip Sandwich
- 1 or 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets (or 1 pound of chicken breast, chopped into bite-sized chunks)
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- shortening or cooking oil such as vegetable oil as needed (I used olive oil to prevent the chicken from sticking)
Step 1: Cut the chicken breast into bite-sized chunks – about 2 inches for large pieces. I cut them into 6 pieces each because no one likes big chunks of chicken except my toddler.
Step 2: Mix the honey and spices in a bowl and then marinate the raw chicken. You can use a zip lock bag or any big container to fit all of the ingredients.
Step 3: Shake well until all chicken pieces are well coated with a honey glaze mixture.
Step 4: Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken pieces on medium to high heat for about 7 minutes, or until the meat is cooked.
Step 5: Serve hot with your favorite sandwich topping.
