Honey Dipt Fried Chicken

Tonight my boyfriend was waxing nostalgic about honey-dipt (NOT "dipped", he asserts) fried chicken from his home state of Jersey, specifically from Mr. Bee's in Somerville. Now I am dying to make some! Does anyone know how?

    Elise,
    As I recall it is near the big traffic circle (rotary) at the junction of Rt 206 and 22 near Somerville. If you time your flights right you should be able to do a round-trip in about 16 hours....
    I hate to deflate your anticipation, but the only thing that makes it slighly different is a 'sweetened' batter. Put a little honey or cornsyrup in your next batch of batter-dipped' chicken and you will make hime smile.

    Lou is correct... Rt 202 and 28 are also involved with the 206 and 22 in that area. (see next post). I guess my point is -make it at home- the drive is a bummer!

    Smart and Final or similar stores may carry the Tyson Honey-Stung frozen precooked chicken. It's kinda dreadful, but it meets my main requirement: I can nuke it while still half-asleep, consume, and return to bed without waking myself or my beloved.

    I myself only like to eat things that would be good enough to jolt me awake. Does anyone have a good batter recipe? I always just coat my fried chicken in seasoned flour. (and none of this "You take one Babe Ruth, season well" stuff, Smarty-pants!)

    Elise, I am not a fan of it but my Jersey born-and-bred spouse is. Just mix enough water into some honey to thin it out - probably about 3/4 honey and 1/4 water although I've never measured it, dip the chicken pieces in it and let them dry off for for about 10-15 minutes. Then coat in your seasoned flour and fry as usual.

    This is a delicious way to have chicken. I remember there was a fast-fppd restaurant when I was a kid (name escapes me) that specialized in honey chicken. But now, I just get out the honey bear bottle and squeeze some on my chicken without going through all the trouble.

    It wasn't Yogi Bear's Honey Fried Chicken, was it? There's a Yogi Bear's restaurant somewhere in South Carolina. I saw the sign and was all for eating there but couldn't convince the rest of the group. Oh well, maybe one day.

    YUM, NOW WE'RE TALKING! This is one of my favorite things to eat, especially at Amy Ruth's in New York (they also offer honey-dipped fried catfish). From what I understand, it's just plain-old fried chicken that they dip in honey, sometimes "infused" with cinnamon and/or vanilla bean.

    This particular one was in Jersey. I don't know how widespread the phenomenon is.

    there is a yogi bear's fried chicken in hartsville, sc , about 20 miles from me. it is great chicken for a good price, but i can never taste the difference between that and regular fried chicken. home made is a different story...just dredge the chicken in straight honey then dip in a flour/crushed cornflake mixture seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and a dash of cinnamon. that is REAL honey fried chicken!!

    yeah, you should try it, it makes a wonderful cruchy crust, and it doesn't taste like cornflakes at all once cooked. just be sure to crush the cornflakes very fine. i guess its a southern secret to fried chicken, lol, although i have heard of people from all over using the cornflake method for fried chicken. i always mix an equal part of flour with the cornflake crumbs, then add whatever seasonings, and dredge.

    I drive to Hartsville. To my knowledge it is the only Yogi Bear's around this side of the state ! Its about 30 miles from Sumter, but I also own land in Lee County (Bishopville).

    I remember as a kid visiting my Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles down in Hartsville, SC. My mother is from there & we would travel there on vacation from Connecticut. We would eat at Yogi Bear's Chicken back when they used honey in their batter. Now they no longer use honey in the batter, and they put the honey packets on the side. This I think lead to a decline in customer satisfaction. But now it's my family's consensus that it's always best to make it yourself.

    Elise, have you tried:


    Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken

    9537 Culver Boulevard
    Culver City, CA 90232

    www.honeyskettle.com

    The chicken is wonderful. The service is awful.

    You go up to the counter to place your order. Then you wait.

    And wait....

    And wait....

    But it's worth it.

    Great chicken and something to complain about, both!

    There is a Pop's Honey Fried Chicken in Terrell Tx. The chicken is good but I can never taste the honey. They make some real good fried livers. It was their livers that helped me acquire a taste for them.

    Taken from Wikipedia:

    "There is also one remaining restaurant from the chain bearing Yogi's name, "Yogi Bear's Honey Fried Chicken", in Hartsville, South Carolina. In both cases, Hanna-Barbera licensed the name and likenesses to the respective companies."

    I agree with EliseT's boyfriend about the Fried Chicken at Mr. Bee's. When I lived in the Somerville area, I would go there before I would go to Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    Yogi uses the same batter as they did in 1960. It is a honeyfried batter that no one else can use. My father owns the company and has a copyright on the batter. I know I am biased, but it is the best chicken!

    I would imagine you would have to wait if they cooked the chicken to order rather than have it sitting around under a heat lamp. If so, that would explain, both the wait and, the goodness of the chicken.
