Crispy Honey Sesame Chicken
Personally, this is one of the easiest dressings on a fried chicken recipe. The sweet, savory, and spicy sauce is everything we ask for! For the fried chicken; lightly coat it with egg mixture and flour to fry until crispy and golden brown. Meanwhile, take a skillet or a pan and add in any vegetable oil, cook the chopped garlic with the Hero ingredient; Honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, chili flakes, and lemon juice.
You can simply eyeball the quantity here because anyway, this will turn out to be lips smacking good. Plate up this delicious sweet and sticky honey chicken with a hefty sprinkle of sesame seeds and enjoy.

This one-pot creamy Chicken Tikka Masala should be your next go-to recipe with no- putting on a ton of effort. It is that easy and hassle-free.
Take a deep bowl and start marinating the chicken with plain yogurt, lemon juice, grated ginger and garlic, and seasonings. Mix it well and let it chill for at least half an hour.
Next, you grab a cooking dish, add any vegetable oil to cook the marinated chicken and keep it aside. Using the same pan, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, tomato puree, grated ginger, and garlic with a bunch of spices: ground cumin, coriander, paprika, garam masala, fenugreek leaves, turmeric, and chili powder.
