How to Cook the Chicken Bites

The method to cook chicken bites is super simple:

First, arrange diced chicken pieces in a baking dish then season with the spice mix. Speckle the chicken with the diced butter.

Put in a hot oven at 420ºF (220ºC) for 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through. You might want to crisp up the edge by broiling the chicken bites for the last two minutes of baking time. Easy!

You’ll love this chicken recipe because the butter, baking juices, and spices will meld together and create a luscious sauce you’ll want to sip by the spoon!

Tips for the oven-baked chicken recipe

This roasted chicken bites recipe is ridiculously easy to make and packs a maximum of flavor. Ready for a new chicken dinner winner?

  • Make sure to dice chicken breast to regular size to ensure even baking.
  • One good trick is to freeze the chicken for 45 minutes to make cutting easier and less messy, but it’s totally optional!
  •  You can customize the seasoning to your liking: try honey and mustard, taco seasoning, Indian spices, etc.
  • To make the chicken bites extra crispy, add a tablespoon of corn starch to the spice mix before coating the chicken.

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!

What to serve the chicken bites with?

The oven-baked chicken bites go very well over cauliflower rice as we did when shooting the pictures. It is also excellent over regular rice, broccoli, zucchini noodles, with a side of roasted veggies, or on top of a salad.

How and how long to store the baked chicken bites

This baked chicken keeps well in an airtight container for 2 days in the refrigerator. Reheat gently in the microwave, in the love, or on the stove with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce. You can also freeze the baked chicken bites for up to two months.

    I have made these several times and they always come out great. Follow the recipe, don’t skip the butter and don’t overcook and you’ll be happy with this one. Super easy for a weeknight.

    We are a very meat and potatoes kind of family. So, I made this with mashed potatoes. Wonderful! The chicken breasts were so tender and flavorful. My college student really enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. Said that it is so good, fast and easy they will be making it at their apartment. Win for Mom.

    Made this twice now, both times I loved it and the kids loved it. Like others, I tossed everything (except the butter) in a bowl then added to the pan. First time, I made it with thighs I had, was great. Second, I had breasts, also great. This recipe would work great with a 1 to 1.5 lb pork loin cut into 3/4" medallions, too.

    This is my new favorite recipe! This was packed with flavor and the chicken was so tender- it was delicious! Only thing I did different was add the chicken to the bowl and toss it with the seasoning, and it worked out well. I will be adding this to my regular dinner rotation!

    Very tasty. Kids love it. I also added broccoli florets and a cut up red bell pepper and cooked them all in the same pan at the same time. Wonderful over rice.

    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!
