Small bites and perfectly seasoned, tender, and juicy chicken that are baked to crisp, golden-brown perfection with the most amazing garlic butter sauce. Super easy and quick to make using simple pantry ingredients. Enjoy these delicious oven-baked chicken bites over cauliflower rice, and do not forget to spoon the pan sauces on top.


2 tbsp unsalted butter, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb (450 grams) chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish
1 tsp salt
1 tsp instant chicken stock, optional (lower amount of salt if using)


Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 420 degrees F or 220 degrees C conventional. Meanwhile, slice the chicken 1-inch bites.

Step 2: Place all seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken stock, and Italian seasoning) in a small bowl. Mix well.

Step 3: In a baking dish, arrange the chicken and sprinkle over the seasoning mix. Drizzle the chicken with 1 tbsp olive oil, then toss the chicken cubes to coat. Lastly, dot the chicken with butter cubes.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 16 to 18 minutes or until the chicken bites are golden with crisp edges and the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees F or 75 degrees C. Using a spoon, stir the chicken bites after 8 to 10 minutes for even baking. Set the oven to broil (high) if desired in the last 2 minutes, or bake for crispier chicken bites.

Step 5: When done, take the baking dish out of the oven and sprinkle over some fresh chopped parsley. Allow them to rest for about 5 minutes, then serve the chicken bites over cauliflower rice. Drizzle over some of the pan juices and a slice of lemon. Enjoy!
