For a filling dinner, serve this over cauliflower rice, and do not forget to drizzle with the pan juices for that extra layer of flavor!
1 lb (450 grams) chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp unsalted butter, diced
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp instant chicken stock, optional (lower the salt amount if using)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish
How to make Easy Oven Baked Chicken Bites
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 420 degrees F or 220 degrees C (conventional).
Step 2: Into 1-inch cubes, slice the chicken.
Step 3: Place the seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken stock, and Italian seasoning) in a small bowl, Mix well until blended.
Step 4: In a baking dish, arrange the chicken and sprinkle with the seasoning mix and drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil. Toss the chicken until all sides are coated. With butter cubes, patch the seasoned chicken.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 16 to 18 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F or 75 degrees C. Stir the chicken bites using a spoon for even baking after about 8 to 10 minutes. Once the chicken bites are done, they should have crisp and golden edges. If you want crispier chicken bites, broil in the last 2 minutes on high.
Step 6: Take the baking dish out of the oven when done. Over the chicken, sprinkle the fresh chopped parsley. Before serving, let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes. Enjoy the chicken bites over cauliflower rice with drizzles of the pan juices and a slice of lemon on the side.
