#3604 - Chicken Bites

(by Shirley McNevich)

canola oil
1lb. boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup flour
2 beaten eggs
2 TBSP chopped fresh parsley OR dried parsley flakes

Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts, then cut each breast into 1" square chunks. In a bowl add Panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, chopped parsley and paprika--stir to mix. Add more salt and pepper (if you wish)--stir to mix. In a separate bowl add the beaten eggs. Place the flour in a separate bowl. Add 1/4" of canola oil to a cast iron skillet--heat the oil over medium heat until it's hot enough for frying. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour, then dip into the eggs, then coat well in the Panko mixture (press hard). Repeat with all chicken pieces. Place a few at a time into the hot oil and cook until browned and crispy. Place them on paper towels to drain. Repeat with all chicken pieces.
