Honey Barbecue Chicken Bites

I love boneless wings! They are one of my favorite appetizers to get when I am out to eat. These Honey Barbecue Chicken Bites are loaded with tons of sauce, crispy and super easy to make.

The Chicken is baked instead of fried and is coated in a 3 step breading process to make sure it is extra crispy. For my breading I used crushed cornflakes seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder for an extra kick.


To make these easy Chicken Bites start by breading the chicken in the flour, then egg mixture and then the crushed cornflakes. Place the chicken bites in a 400 degree oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.


While the chicken is baking I mix together my favorite barbecue sauce and some honey. Once the chicken is done I toss it in the sauce and serve immediately.

    • Hi Dima,

      You can do this on the stove top as well! Just cook a couple minutes on each side.

    Hey Chef, can I not use some ingredients like, chilli, onion and garlic powder. An also, confirm the lining thing is being one on a baking tray? And finally do I have to have to line it

    Thank you so much for your amazing recipes, my family really enjoys the meals

    • Hi Denise,

      Yes those spices can be omitted! You could use a baking mat placed on a baking sheet or place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Hope you enjoy!

    Chicken looked great and crispy after baking but once I put the barbecue sauce on it the cornflakes became soggy and the chicken has no crunchiness to it at all.
