Directions

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. 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!
