Spicy Honey:

Vinegary Slaw:


  1. For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with a baking rack. Lay out the chicken and pat each piece dry with a piece of paper towel. Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, cayenne pepper, remaining 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and pepper and stir well. Add the chicken pieces into the bowl and toss to coat each piece. Set aside.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk the egg with the mayonnaise, buttermilk and hot sauce. Scatter the crushed cornflakes into a shallow dish.
  4. Remove the chicken from the flour mixture one piece at a time and tap off any excess flour. Dunk and thoroughly coat the chicken in the buttermilk mixture, allow excess to drip off, then roll and press into the cornflake crumbs. Place the chicken onto the rack-lined baking sheet and continue until all of the chicken is coated, making sure to leave space between each piece.
  5. Bake the chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) and the coating is golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes for chicken breasts or thighs and 30 to 40 minutes for drumsticks. Season the chicken immediately with kosher salt and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.
  6. For the spicy honey: Combine the honey, hot sauce and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Transfer to an airtight container to store at room temperature for up to 1 month.
  7. For the slaw: Whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, honey, celery salt and oil in a large bowl. Stir in the onion.
  8. Thinly slice the cabbage and shred the carrot on the large side of a box grater. Then add to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix very well to combine.
  9. Serve the chicken with the spicy honey and slaw.
