             Baked Chicken Bites

 

 

I love cooking but I will admit that sometimes I get frustrated,

 

 

especially when I'm trying to get a meal on the table at the same

 

 

time every day.  This is a recipe that I've adapted to suit several

 

 

different menus.  The only difference is the seasoning on the

 

 

chicken.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like rice as a side for this recipe especially since it makes a sauce

 

 

as it cooks.  It is so good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baked Chicken Bites                                           

 

 

Ingredients

•  ¼ tsp black pepper

•  1 tsp sea salt (check seasonings for salt content) 

•  ½ tsp smoked paprika

•  ¼ tsp onion powder

•  ¼ tsp garlic powder

•  1 tsp seasoning of your choice

•  1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces**

•  Tbsp of a good olive oil

•  Tbsp butter, cut into cubes (½ Tbsp for greasing dish)

Preheat oven to 425°F.  Lightly grease baking dish with ½ Tbsp

 

 

butter.  

Instructions

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the first 6 ingredients.

 

2.  Place chicken in the prepared baking dish in a single layer; sprinkle with

 

 

      the ingredients in Step1.  Drizzle with the olive oil and mix together

 

 

      making sure to coat evenly.  Dot with the 2 tablespoons of cubed butter.

 

3.  Bake for 10 minutes; stir; contined baking for another 8 to 10 minutes or

 

 

     until internal temperature reaches 165°F.  For more color, place under a

 

 

 

     close broiler for the last 2 minutes.

 * You can use taco, teriyaki, Italian, Greek or poultry seasoning.  I have also

 

 

     tried a lemon butter seasoning and it worked great.  I used Greek

 

 

     seasoning for this recipe.

**I discovered Perdue now has packages of diced chicken and used them

 

  

   in this recipe.
