The summer is heating up and that means it’s time to start to think of quick meals that won’t heat the kitchen up, too.  The amount of time my oven is on in the summer is pretty low and with dishes like this Easy Oven Baked Chicken Bites, I’m a happy girl.  The entire recipe, from start to finish takes less than 30 minutes.  

Chicken recipes are very much a staple in my house.  We probably have chicken 3 times a week, and that means I need to be on my game to make it not boring.  

I wanted to make a healthier chicken nugget and saw this recipe and instantly was drooling over the herbs and spices.  Nuggets without bread crumbs is a winner when we want to watch the carbs! You won’t even miss the breadcrumbs with the seasoning mix on the cut-up chicken breast pieces.  

Now, if you are a carb eater and have to have those bread crumbs and want to try a different spice blend on those nuggets, I suggest you try this recipe for Indian-spiced chicken nuggets. It’s so good! In fact, I’ve used the marinade spice blend when making these chicken bites. I just omitted the coating and frying as I prefer to bake or air fry. Serve these chicken bites with white rice and bacon green beans.

How to Make Oven Baked Chicken Bites

When I said this recipe is easy, I meant it’s super easy. Mix up the seasonings in a small bowl.

Seasoning for chicken bites

Take chicken breast and cut into 1 inch pieces and then season the bites with the herb and spice mixture.  Drizzle a bit of olive oil over it and toss. 

seasoning chicken pieces

Dot with a bit of butter and bake till done. I like to turn the broiler on the last couple of minutes to get the chicken bites a bit more crispy.
