Dollar Store Recipes: Baked Honey Garlic Chicken and Rice

Hello and welcome back to Dollar Store Decadence Recipes, where we cook good food that it almost entirely made of ingredients from the 99.  This time I made a Honey Garlic chicken recipe, adapted from Tip Hero.  Everything for this recipe, except for the chicken itself can be found at the 99.  So without further ado, leggo:

What you need:

1lb of Chicken, cut in large chunks


1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs


2 eggs, beaten


Salt and Pepper


1/2 cup Soy Sauce


1/2 cup Honey


1 1/2 TBsp Sriracha Sauce


2 1/2 Tsp Minced Garlic


1 TBsp Sesame Seeds


1 1/2 Cups White Rice


Optional: Sliced Green Onions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375° and cook the rice.
  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.  Be careful not to use too much salt.
  3. Taking a few pieces at a time, dip your chicken into the eggs and then the panko and set them on a parchment or aluminum foil-lined cookie sheet.  Continue until they are all coated and then bake them for 20-25 minutes until they are cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is in the oven, combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic and Sriracha in a small saucepan and bringing to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  5. Once the chicken is done, pour the sauce over it coating it evenly.
  6. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on as well as green onions if you are using them.  Serve over your rice.
  7. Voila!  C’est fini!  Now it’s time to eat!


Let’s talk finances:

Chicken was $1.99

Panko was from the 99 and I used about 75% of it so we’ll add 75¢

Eggs were from an 18 pack at the 99 that costs $1.79 so that’s 18¢

Soy Sauce… 50¢

Honey from the 99…50¢

I used Crying Tiger sriracha sauce that I found at the 99…10¢

Minced Garlic from the 99 as well… 6¢

Rice again from the 99… 75¢

Sesame seeds were 99¢ as well for the whole package…10¢

This recipe makes four servings.  The total cost is $4.93, which comes out to $1.23 per serving.  This is a full meal so that makes it even better!  I love it when meals come out to be less than $1.50 per person.  I also love making meals that seem fancy but are really inexpensive.  Pow!

Anywho, try it and let me know how it goes!
