1. To make the oven-baked chicken bites: Preheat your oven to 420°F  (220ºC) conventional. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes.

2. In a small bowl, combine all seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken stock, and Italian seasoning). Arrange chicken in a baking dish and sprinkle with the seasoning mix. Drizzle a tablespoon olive oil and toss chicken cubes with the seasoning to coat on all sides. Speck seasoned chicken with butter cubes.

3. Bake seasoned chicken in the preheated oven for 16-18 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) using a meat thermometer. After 8-10 minutes, stir the chicken bites with a spoon for even baking. Once done, the chicken bites should be golden with crisp edges. For crispier chicken bites, switch to broil on high for the last 2 minutes of cooking until golden.

4. Remove the baking dish from the oven, sprinkle chicken with fresh chopped parsley, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve the oven-baked chicken bites over cauliflower rice with a good drizzle of the pan juices and a slice of lemon. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! I have made it twice. Paired it with cauliflower rice the first time and quinoa w/ peas and onions the second time. A hit with the family. Add a nice salad and it's a quick, nutritious dinner.

    We tried it last night and served it with steamed cauliflower rice with veggies. It was delicious and has been added to the "Make Again" binder! Super easy and quick to make.

    Made these for dinner tonight. So easy, flavorful, and definitely a plus putting in the oven. No mess, no fuss. My younger one (super picky eater) was just licking the sauce off the chicken! I doubled the batch, omitted the cayenne, used cilantro instead for garnish, and it turned out great. Definitely will be on repeat for weeknight (or weekend) dinners.

    I made this tonight along with the Garlic Butter Parmesan Pasta and, oh my goodness! So amazing. It’s not often that I find a recipe that I don’t feel like I need to alter at all. Excited to try some of your other recipes.

    Thanks for sharing! I was looking for a quick meal to make with chicken breasts and this was perfect. Very flavorful and good over rice. I wish it has created a little more sauce but only because I liked it so much!
