As the name suggests, fried chicken is the real thrill and most important part of Honey Butter Fried Chicken. And what makes this place unique is (outside of the drumsticks and wings) that it’s a deboned poultry party. And the boneless thighs and breasts allow the chicken to remain moist and flavorful while maintaining the crunch of their double batter crust. It’s a juicy and satisfying piece of fried meat with a distinctly seasoned fried crust.
And the actual honey butter is where it’s at. If you like honey on your fried chicken, which we certainly do, you will absolutely love smearing this sweet buttery goodness all over your bird. As an added bonus, sweet corn-muffins accompany any order of fried chicken and they are pretty baller too. Add a dollop of honey butter to the corn muffins for similar flavor escalation.
When it comes to the sides, feel free to try one or two but know they aren’t nearly as important. A side of mac & cheese is always a good idea, but the main attraction here is a plate of chicken and corn muffins for less than $15. Putting literal honey butter on fried chicken may sound like overkill, but try it once and you’ll be hooked.
Boneless and juicy. Put the honey butter on the chicken - all of it.
Honey Butter Fried Chicken Sandwich
Fried Chicken + Honey Butter + Bun = Yes, please.
Pimento Mac’n Cheese
Great pimento flavor with a little bit of a kick. Crumbled breadcrumbs on top are a nice touch too. Mix it all together for some cheesy goodness.
Schmaltz Smashed Potatoes
A perfectly fine rendition of creamy mashed potatoes.
The usual with a little bacon thrown in.
Housemade Dipping Sauces
There are a number of tasty dipping sauces, including spicy creole mustard and candied jalapeno mayo. They are all good if you want to try something else, but to be honest, the honey butter is just so damn good.
