Baked ITALIAN CHICKEN BITES

TABLE OF CONTENTS: APPETIZERS

 


 

Outstanding, easy appetizer.  You can serve it with a dipping sauce, if desired, but is is great just as it is!

See “Cooking Tips” on Home Page – Chicken Breast, cutting

 



2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts


1 small bottle Italian or Greek salad dressing (oil & vinegar base)


1 ½ cups Italian breadcrumbs


½ cup finely grated Parmesan, Romano or Asaigo cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces, and place in a glass bowl.  Pour enough of the salad dressing on the chicken pieces to coat them.  Allow chicken to marinate in the salad dressing for 15 minutes.  In a large heavy zip-lock bag,

combine the Italian breadcrumbs & grated cheese; seal bag & shake to mix. After the marinade time, use a slotted spoon to drain one spoon full at a time of the chicken; then place the chicken in the plastic bag, seal, & shake to coat.  Repeat until all chicken bites are coated

on all sides.  Place chicken bites in a single layer on an ungreased non-stick baking sheet.  Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes; then use a non-stick spatula to turn bites to the other side (as best you can).  Cook another 2 minutes or until browned on 2 sides &

chicken is done.  Serve with cocktail picks.
