Ingredients

For the chicken:

  • two 5oz boneless skinless chicken breasts — , cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 small eggs — (1 large egg might be just enough), whisked
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs — (Homemade of store bought. Regular bread crumbs would work.)
  • 2 Tbsp flax meal
  • 2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley — (optional)
  • Optional: cooking spray

For garnishing:

  • 1 Tbsp shredded parmesan
  • 1/2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat. Optional: spray parchment paper with cooking spray ( I usually don't use any oil).
  2. In three shallow bowls place flour, eggs and combined breadcrumbs, flax meal, parmesan, salt, pepper and parsley.
  3. Dip all chicken bites in flour, eggs and breadcrumb mix. Line on baking sheet.
  4. Bake chicken bites for 13 - 18 minutes. Chicken bites are done, when juices run clear when chicken is pierced.
  5. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley.
  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Recipe Notes

I know these look fried, but - they are baked.
2 Tbsp of flax meal adds extra : 2800mg Omega-3, 3g protein and 4g fiber to 4 servings.
Baking time varies, depending on the size of chicken bites, thickness, type of oven used and baking pan. Please, after 13 minutes of baking, check if chicken is fully cooked and keep an eye on it.
Smaller pieces of chicken, can easily be over cooked.
Chicken is done, when pierced juices run clear.
