SPICY POPCORN CHICKEN BITES

Ingredients:

3 cups Kettle Brand potato chips (suggested: Buffalo Bleu)
1 1/2 cup flour
Pinch of cayenne (about 1/4 tsp to start, more if desired)
2 eggs
1/4 cup half and half (or milk)
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
Olive oil, salt, and pepper
Honey mustard dipping sauce

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F

Crush the chips in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add 1 cup flour and cayenne and pulse again until incorporated into an even crumb-like mixture.

Place remaining 1/2 cup flour in a shallow dish.

Whisk eggs and half and half together in a shallow dish.

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

Rub a baking sheet with olive oil to coat or place a wire rack on the baking sheet if you have one.

Set up an assembly line of sorts: flour, egg mixture, Kettle chip mixture. Dip each chicken piece in each bowl, moving through the assembly line and making sure it gets coated at each step starting with flour, then egg, then crumbs. Place on the baking sheet.

Bake chicken for 5 minutes, flip if needed, and bake another 5 minutes. I found my total time varied but generally ended up between 12 and 18 minutes to get the right amount of crisping and browning. These go perfectly with the honey mustard dipping sauce!
