1 cup gluten free panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper
1/3 cup honey
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
1 tbsp sriracha

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly oil a 9x13” baking dish or coat with nonstick spray. Cut chicken into 1-inch chunks. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Working in batches, dip chicken into eggs, then dredge in bread crumbs, pressing to coat. Add chicken to prepared baking dish.
