Baked Chicken Bites (with 2 Dipping Sauces)

Last week I had one large chicken breast left over after making the Red Dragon Chicken Salad so I made up some baked nuggets. They were delicious! Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside and just the right amount of taste from the  marinade.  I also made 2 yummy dipping sauces because who wants to eat them plain? No one that’s who. So here we go.


Baked Chicken Bites


  • 1 large chicken breast, fat trimmed, cut into 2 bite pieces
  • 1 large garlic clove, smashed
  • 1/5 cup light italian dressing
  • 1 cup Panko
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place chicken, garlic and dressing in a ziplock bag and let it marinate at least 30 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Place panko in a shallow dish.  Roll each piece of chicken through the panko until coated and then place it on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.
  5. Serve immediately.

I don’t know how the photo came out so anemic looking-the chicken really was nice and golden brown.  That’s why I’m not a photographer.
