Baked Honey BBQ Popcorn Chicken

Prep Time: 30 minutes    Total Time: 1 hour

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups corn flakes, crushed lightly
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • chives (optional)

BBQ SAUCE

  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (I used aluminum foil and sprayed cooking spray on it). Set aside

 

2. Place the bite-sized pieces of chicken in a large bowl. Add flour and stir to coat each piece. Set aside.

8. Carefully place chicken in a large bowl (pouring them in will cause them to lose some of the cornflakes). Pour the warm BBQ mix on top and gently stir to coat.

I really liked how handy this recipe is. It is perfect as a finger food for parties but we were also able to use it as a dinner. Also, I had more chicken then I did sauce, so I thought I would try hot sauce! Voila! Boneless buffalo wings!

It didn’t take long to prepare and there weren’t any left (which is always a good sign!) This is going to be a staple on Game Day’s!
