Recipe Ingredients for Crispy Chicken Bites

18 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 pinch garlic powder
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Recipe Directions for Crispy Chicken Bites

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or coating lightly with best-quality olive oil.

  2. Cut chicken breasts into nugget-sized pieces, about 1.5 inches square. Set aside.

  3. Next, combine all dry ingredients in a large container with a tightly fitting lid. Shake well. This is your coating mixture.

  4. Combine water and egg in a medium bowl. Dip each piece in the water/egg-white mixture. Then dip each piece in the coating mixture. Make sure each piece is well coated.

  5. Place on the baking sheet. When all of your chicken has been coated and your baking sheet is full, place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
