Unhappy chips in new paint

I just painted my kitchen cabinets. They are knotty pine. I used a liquid sander product, then a coat of BIN then two coats of latex. The cabinets chip at the slightest bump. What did I do wrong and how should I deal with the chips? Some go right down to the wood.

I'm amazed that BIN would chip in a situation like this. The only thing I can think of is that the BIN didn't dry enough before applying the finish coats, but BIN dries FAST. Or it possibly could have been applied in a humid condition. Honestly I'm baffled.

To fix the chips I would lightly sand them down flush on the edges, spot prime and repaint.

thanks prowallguy, I don't know about the bin, but what a drag. I have the whole rest of the room to paint, now I'm not sure how to proceed.
