Chicken Honeybee

(Deep fried chicken rolled and shaped like a honey bee)

Mistook it for real???? Heheee… It is edible honey bee. Scroll down for recipe.

Honeybee is a deep fried appetizer made with boneless chicken. I feel this is the most easiest of all of the variety snack recipes and a show stealer recipe in any of the gatherings. No hassle, easy , crispy and yummy of all of the appetizers. Chicken is grounded with spices and then rolled and shaped into cylinders. Rolled with coloured dough and deep fried in oil. That’s it.. Your crunchy, munchy, yummy chicken honey bee is ready to be munched on.

This is the savory recipe which I gave my dear group mates for the savory snack along recipe. I had 20 tried clicks and the best part is , all were so happy with the recipe for 2 reasons, one for it’s ease of being made and the other, for it’s crispy, crunchy taste. Happy me and happy team!!!!!! I am also including a collage of all the tried clicks of the honeybee.
