This recipe was my hubby’s idea (thanks Brett!) and was unbelievably, mouth-wateringly good. We served these with Crispy Oven Baked Fries and my dad’s homemade coleslaw recipe for a fantastic and filling meal.
 
The chicken was super tender, perfect dipped in the sauce, and made completely on one sheet pan.  We made about 2lbs of chicken, and while there were leftovers… there weren’t many.  We took these babies down.

How Do You Make Honey Garlic Chicken Bites?

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper, and add 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil to the pan, tilt pan to coat the parchment paper evenly with the oil.  Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt.
  3. In another medium bowl, crack the eggs and scramble well to combine.
  4. To bread the chicken, dip in the flour mixture, then egg, then flour again.  Place the dredged chicken bites on the sheet pan in a single layer.  Repeat for all pieces of chicken.
  5. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, flip, and bake for another 5-10.  Chicken should be cooked through and golden brown on the outside.
  6. While the chicken is baking, add the honey, chopped garlic, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Set aside.
  7. Remove finished chicken from the oven. Toss the baked chicken with the honey garlic sauce. Serve, and enjoy!
