In a medium bowl, combine flour and black pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk egg, salt and 2 tablespoons water. In a separate bowl, add panko.
Roll goat cheese into 24 (1-Tablespoon size) balls. Roll each ball in flour, then egg, then panko crumbs, coating evenly. Freeze 20 minutes, or until firm.
When ready to cook, set a deep saucepan to medium-high heat. Heat oil to 350 degrees F.
Fry goat cheese in batches, 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate.
Arrange goat cheese poppers on a platter. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chives. Serve immediately.
