Honey Brined Potato Chip Chicken

I found a recipe for Honey Brined Fried Chicken a while back and put it on my to try list. When I came across it I decided to change it up just a little.
You can do these sliced into fingers or nuggets too!

approx 1 lbs chicken breast, sliced into prefered portion sizes
3 cups  water
1/4 cup salt(I used Sicilian lemon salt)
1/2 cup honey

1 cup crushed potato chips
1 cup bread crumbs(gluten free are delicious!)
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
 pepper to taste( you could add salt if you like, I found it unnecessary with the chips)

flour or cornstarch

In a large dish mix water, salt and honey until the salt is mostly dissolved. Add chicken, cover and place in the fridge, allow to sit at least an hour, longer if possible.

In a shallow pan combine bread crumbs, potato chips and seasonings, mix well.

In a bowl add 1/2 cup flour or cornstarch. (you may need more later)

Remove chicken from brine(dont discard!)

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a baking sheet

Dip each slice of chicken in the flour or cornstarch , coat well, then dip back in the brine

then in the potato chip mix. Place on a greased baking sheet

 repeat with the rest of the chicken.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes until the chicken reaches a temp of 165.
