The breading process ensures the chicken is perfectly crispy, while the honey BBQ sauce adds a rich depth of flavor that balances sweet and savory notes. The bites are easy to make and can be served on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • 1 pound of chicken breasts or tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce ( I used chick fil a bbq sauce)
  • Optional: Chopped green onions or sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Season the chicken bites:
    • Start by seasoning the bite-sized chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Make sure they are evenly coated for optimal flavor.
  2. Prepare your dredging stations:
    • In a shallow dish, place the flour.
    • In a second shallow dish, combine the milk.
    • In a third shallow dish, add the panko breadcrumbs.
  3. Bread the chicken bites:
    • Take each chicken bite and coat it in the flour, shaking off any excess.

    • Finally, coat the chicken bite in the panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Fry the chicken bites:
    • Heat oil and butter in an electric skillet to 350°F (175°C).
    • Once the oil is hot, carefully add the breaded chicken bites in batches.
    • Fry until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per batch.
    • Remove the chicken bites from the skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  5. Prepare the honey BBQ sauce:
    • In a saucepan, combine honey and BBQ sauce.
    • Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until warmed through and well-mixed.
