I made these baked honey garlic chicken bites a few weeks ago with the intention to post the recipe before Super Bowl but I totally forgot about it.
Never mind that Super Bowl is over because these addictive and absolutely delicious chicken bites can be made and served any time of the year!
They are so good as appetizer, light snack and even for dinner.

Honey Garlic Chicken Bites
Honey Garlic Chicken Bites – panko-crusted baked chicken nuggets with a sweet and savory honey garlic sauce. So sticky sweet and good.
- 1 lb. boneless and skinless chicken breasts pat dry and cut into cubes
- ground black pepper
- 2 large eggs beaten
- 1 cup panko or breadcrumbs
- white sesame seeds for garnishing
- chopped scallions or chives for garnishing
Honey Garlic Sauce:
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
1Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
Season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Coat each piece of the chicken with the beaten eggs first, then roll in the panko. Repeat to nicely coat the chicken.
Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken turn golden brown. You might turn the chicken pieces over to bake the other side.
Mix all the ingredients for the Sauce in a small sauce. Whisk to mix well. Cook on low heat until the sauce slightly thickens.
Transfer the chicken out into a bowl and add the Sauce mixture. Gently toss to coat well. Garnish with the white sesame and scallions/chives, serve immediately.

Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Just made these and it turned out so well!
I didn’t have any honey or Thai sweet chili sauce on hand so I used maple syrup and chili garlic sauce(only 1/4 tbs) in place of those. I also doubled the sauce (except the garlic, honey(or maple syrup), and cornstarch)
That’s awesome, sounds yummy!
We have made this, but then with coated shrimps. Absolutely amazing! We will keep this recipe for sure!
Hi, I just discovered your site last night by accident and I have seen so many delicious recipes that I want to try that I just don’t know which to try first. Thanks for sharing and happy cooking.
Hi Ann, thanks for finding my site. You can try just about anything. They are all amazing!
This easy to follow recipe is awesome.
I’ve done it twice. 2nd attempt – I added sweet rice wine in lieu of sugar for the sauce.
Great idea. Glad that you like these honey garlic chicken bites.
These are way too sweet for us. I whipped them up for some tv binge watching last night and 2T of honey was just about right. I also toasted the sesame seeds before using them for garnish. To be honest, the chicken tidbits were wonderful as presented, but I’ll probably just grab the Thai sweet chili sauce for dipping next time
Hi Janet, sorry that you think it’s too sweet. Thanks for the honest feedback.
