Buffalo Chicken Breast Nuggets

I dont care for wings so I made a wing recipe into a buffalo nugget recipe! I also made Honey BBQ for the people who dont care for the kick!!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

3 chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes

For Spicy Hot :
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 -1/2 cup hot sauce(to taste)

For Sweet:
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/3 cup honey
(cut amounts in half if you plan to do  1/2 and 1/2)
Place the flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt into a resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix. Add the chicken, seal, and toss until well coated with the flour mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
You can fry them or you can bake them:

To Fry:
I add a bit more flour and shake them up again. Then heat oil to about 350-375  in a fryer (I use a fry daddy) and add pieces a few at a time(depending on the size of your fryer)
Fry for 8-9 minutes until golden, drain on paper towels.
When cooled , mix your desired sauce in a bowl add chicken and toss well.
Place on foiled and lightly greased baking sheet(you can refrigerate here or go straight to the oven )
 bake them at 375 until hot and bubbly(about 10-15 minutes, longer if they are from the fridge)

To Bake:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease.

Dip the floured chicken into the sauce mixture, coat well, shake off excess, and place back on the baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and crispy on the outside, check after 20 minutes or so. Turn them over halfway during cooking so they cook evenly.
