1. Baked Honey BBQ Chicken Bites Recipe

Ingredients

For the Chicken

  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Honey BBQ Sauce

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a little heat)

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Add the chicken cubes and toss to coat them evenly with the seasoned flour mixture.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add the coated chicken cubes and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they are lightly browned.

Transfer the partially cooked chicken bites to the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).

While the chicken is baking, prepare the honey BBQ sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, honey, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper (if using).

Remove the baked chicken bites from the oven and immediately toss them in the honey BBQ sauce until they are evenly coated.

Serve the Baked Honey BBQ Chicken Bites warm, garnished with chopped green onions or parsley if desired. Enjoy!

These Baked Honey BBQ Chicken Bites are the perfect balance of sweet, tangy, and savory. The combination of the crispy baked chicken and the irresistible honey BBQ sauce creates a flavor explosion that will have your guests begging for more.

Feel free to adjust the spice level by adding more or less cayenne pepper to the sauce. You can also experiment with different barbecue sauce flavors to find your perfect combination. Serve these delectable bites as an appetizer, a main course, or as part of a larger meal – they’re sure to be a crowd-pleaser no matter how you enjoy them.
