The greatest thing about chicken bites is they are a favorite of the kids, but have an appeal for the adults. Give them a try at your next birthday party, celebration, or family dinner.
This recipe courtesy of L.C. my kitchen counterpart.
Serves 4 (but easily doubles for large batches)
Full time: 1 hour
You will need:
1 1/2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup seasoned panko bread crumbs, or 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs and 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp white pepper
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
Optional: 1/2 cup agave nectar or honey
Let us begin:
Preheat your oven to 350
Line a baking sheet with alumin foil and set aside for a moment
Cut you chicken breasts width wise into strips 1/2" wide, if you want more of a nugget size cut these strips in half
In a medium bowl combine all you dry ingredients
To create a nice coating on the outside, roll one piece of chicken around in the butter/oil bowl
Lay piece on your baking sheet, continue until all chicken is coated and ready to go
Bake in oven for 30-45 depending on chicken thickness or until chicken has reached proper temp of 180
Remove from oven and gently drizzle with optional agave or honey if desired.
If not drizzling just plate up and serve to a crowd of smiling faces and happy taste buds!
