- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bit sized chunks
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 5 cups corn flakes cereal, 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
Honey BBQ Sauce
- 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup ketchup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together your crushed cornflakes with your salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika.
Whisk the eggs with the milk.
Take each piece of chicken and dip it into the egg mixture, then roll it in the cornflake mixture. Place each chicken bit on the baking sheet. Repeat until all your chicken is coated.
Bake for 18 minutes, flipping half way through.
In a small saucepan, mix your three ingredients and warm them on a medium heat.
When your bites are cooked, place them all in a large bowl, then pour the warmed sauce over the top and toss the chicken so all of the bites are coated.
Serve them either as an appetizer with some yummy dips or with fries or salad to turn it into an entree!
So simple and delicious!
