Featured Recipe: Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Nova Scotia Honey

Morris East Chicken Horiz 2

The sweetness of honey makes for a beautiful addition to any dish. This Buttermilk Fried Chicken from Morris East gets its heat from a sriracha marinade, which is offset perfectly by a sweet drizzle of Nova Scotia honey.
