How to Make Honey Garlic Butter Crispy Chicken? A Delicious Step-by-Step Guide

Q: Can I use bone-in chicken thighs instead of deboned ones for this recipe?
A: Yes, you can use bone-in chicken thighs, but cooking time may need to be adjusted to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.

Q: What can I substitute for cornstarch if I don’t have it?
A: You can use all-purpose flour or potato starch as a substitute for cornstarch to achieve a similar crispy texture.

Q: Is it necessary to marinate the chicken for 30 minutes?
A: Marinating for 30 minutes helps to infuse the flavors into the chicken, but if you’re short on time, a shorter marinate can still yield tasty results.
