SUR (inspired) Crispy Chicken with Honey Dijon Sauce

After visiting Sur over the weekend, and trying their infamous crispy chicken, I was slightly underwhelmed shocked by its simplicity, and decided to try and recreate it at home. It was super easy and actually ended up tasting not far from the real deal, and didn’t cost $30/plate!

We couldn’t figure out exactly what the “gravy” was, but deduced that it was something close to a honey Dijon sauce, or at least tasted like one.

Crispy Chicken with Honey Dijon Sauce

  • chicken breast
  • flour
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • parsley
  • eggs (whisked for chicken batter)
  • milk or cream
  • chicken broth
  • green beans
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • shallots
  • honey
  • dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  1. Gently pound down or tenderize your chicken breasts
  2. Combine the breadcrumbs, parsley and any other seasoning on a plate
  3. Coat the chicken in flour and dip into egg mixture
  4. Place the chicken onto the seasoned breadcrumb plate and cover completely
  5. Heat oil in a skillet and sear the chicken breast on a high heat (finish here or in the oven, wrapped in tinfoil and baked at 375 degrees
    *start steaming green beans and prepping mashed potatoes 
  6. Reduce heat and add in finely chopped shallots and sauté until softened (add more oil or butter as needed)
  7. Add in garlic and white wine, cook until reduced
  8. Stir in the chicken broth, mustard and honey
  9. Once sauce has started to thicken, add in the cream, salt and pepper
  10. Cook until desired thickness is reached (add broth to thin out or flour to thicken)
  11. Plate with mashed potatoes, steamed beans, chicken and the sauce in a ramekin
    (goat cheese balls are optional highly recommended)
