Step 1

Marinate the chicken. In a large bowl, toss the chicken, grated onion, grated garlic, salt and pepper together until well coated. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2

Heat the oil for frying in a large heavy-bottomed skillet or a Dutch oven over medium heat to 365°F. Prepare the dredge. In a large shallow bowl, combine ¾ cup cornstarch, 4 teaspoons baking powder, salt and pepper.

Step 3

In a second bowl, whisk together ¾ cup cornstarch, 3 teaspoons baking powder and flour.

Step 4

Add the beer to the flour mixture and whisk to combine.

Step 5

Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 6

Coat the chicken in the cornstarch mixture. Shake off any excess.

Step 7

Dip the chicken in the beer mixture.

Step 8

Fry the chicken until it is cooked through or the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165°F.

Step 9

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

Step 10

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 11

Add the honey to the saucepan and cook until thickened, about 3-5 minutes. Season with salt. Add the fried chicken to the saucepan and toss to coat.

Step 12

Garnish with parsley and serve. Enjoy!
