Will Be Back!!!

Hi, everyone!!!

Just a small note from me!!!

I know that some of you might be waiting for a new post cause for the past few weeks I'm not writing anything.

I know how it feels to look at a blog without any new posts, heehee!!!

But don't worry, I didn't forget my blog. I'm just a lil' busy, I mean who's not these days. :p

Just give me a few more days and you'll be reading a new post.

Until then, patience dears!!!


Your dear blogger,

honey pepper chicken strips

I like to prepare these honey pepper chicken strips when I am the in mood for something that is both sweet and spicy. The honey pepper sauce gets most of its heat from black pepper. If you do not want to bread the chicken, you could brush this sauce onto the chicken strips like a BBQ sauce while grilling or baking them in the oven. You will want to time the cooking of the sauce with the cooking of the chicken strips. If the sauce cools down too much, it will become very thick and hard to toss the cooked chicken strips in. These chicken strips make a perfect dinner or are perfect to serve for the upcoming Super Bowl. Enjoy!!!



Honey Pepper Sauce-

  • ¾ cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • juice of 1 lemon

  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Chicken Strips-

  • 2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into strips)
  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour

STEP 1 - In a medium sauce pan combine honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple juice, the juice of one lemon, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. 

STEP 2 - Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until syrupy while stirring occasionally.

STEP 4 - Place the buttermilk into a separate bowl.
