Easy BBQ Boneless Chicken Wings

I love boneless wings! They are one of my favorite appetizers to get when I am out to eat. These Honey Barbecue Boneless Chicken Wings 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 for extra crunch, seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder for an extra kick. The crunch combined with the flavor is addictive!

These boneless chicken wings go with everything! They are perfect for a party (Superbowl!), as an appetizer, or as a main dish.

How to make Honey Barbecue Chicken Bites

  • Preheat oven: To 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Set up a breading station: Add flour to a small bowl, set aside. Add cornflakes, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper to a medium bowl. Set aside. Whisk eggs and milk together in a small bowl.
  • Bread chicken: Begin by dipping chicken in flour then egg, then the crushed cornflakes. Repeat with all of the chicken bites.
  • Bake: Place the breaded chicken bites on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes on each side flipping halfway through.
  • Make the sauce: Heat the barbecue sauce and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Serve: Toss to coat the boneless chicken wings in the sauce and serve immediately.

Tips for Success

  • Always dip the raw chicken into flour first before dipping it into the egg. This helps the breading to stick really well to the chicken without it falling off.
  • Experiment with different BBQ sauce flavors! Some barbecue sauces are hot and spicy, some are sweet and mild, while others are super tangy! Try a different sauce each time. You could also experiment with mustard and make them honey mustard chicken bites! Use less mustard than you would BBQ sauce, try 1/2 cup.
  • Make your own BBQ Sauce! My tried and true Bourbon Barbecue Sauce is DELICIOUS and perfect for these boneless chicken wings.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are boneless chicken wings? Boneless chicken wings are not actually wings, but chicken breast meat! There wouldn’t be much meat left if you deboned a chicken wing so, for ease, we use chicken breast meat.
  • Are boneless chicken wings healthy? Compared to fried chicken wings, these baked boneless wings are much healthier as they aren’t deep-fried in oil. You can make them even healthier depending on the sauce and breadcrumbs that are added.
  • Are boneless wings keto? Not usually, as they are coated in breadcrumbs (or cornflakes in this case). If you’re looking for a keto-friendly chicken wings recipe, try my Air Fryer Chicken Wings!
