    INGREDIENTS:

    CHICKEN BITES:

    1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes

    1 1/2 cups buttermilk

    2 cloves garlic, grated

    1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

    1/2 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon pepper

    2 cups of crushed Fritos

    2 cups of potato chips any flavor

    2 cups corn chips

    ( do this in the food processor)

    HONEY SRIRACHA SAUCE:

    1/2 cup ketchup

    1/2 cup sriracha

    2 tablespoons rice vinegar

    2/3 cup honey

    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

    DIRECTIONS:

    CHICKEN BITES:

    Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400F. Place a piece of parchment paper on two baking sheets, set aside.

    Place the chicken in a medium bowl,

    In a small bowl, combine garlic, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Add the seasoning mixture to the chicken and stir to combine until all the chicken pieces are evenly coated; let sit at least 1 hour

    Place the crushed chips or corn flakes in a shallow dish. Working in batches, dredge chicken bites in mixture and press to coat. Place chicken on prepared baking sheets. Do not over crowd as the bites won’t crisp up as well. Spray the chicken nuggets with nonstick cooking spray.

    Bake for 18-24 minutes or until the chicken is firm to the touch and cooked through. You can prepare the sauce while the chicken is baking. Make sure to turn the chicken at the halfway point so it crisps up on both sides.

    HONEY SRIRACHA SAUCE:

    Heat the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan for 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool. if the sauce is spicy, consider adding another tablespoon of ketchup and/or honey to adjust to personal preference.

    Coat the crispy chicken pieces with the honey sriracha sauce in a large bowl and toss. Alternately, you can serve the sauce on the side!

    Note:

    With all the flavors of potato chips, let your imagination run wild.
