Chicken pieces, two eggs and panko.

My BBQ Chicken Bites recipe was inspired by Jessica Seinfeld’s recipe from her cookbook Deceptively Delicious.

Cooking the chicken bites so they are golden.

Cooking the chicken bites in coconut oil so they are golden on both sides.

All the chicken bites in the skillet with BBQ sauce poured on them.

Yum! The bites are finished after cooking for 20 minutes.

 Critic Housewife’s BBQ Chicken Bites

  • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, rinsed, dried and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 – 18 ounce bottle of BBQ sauce
  • brown or white rice
  1. In a bowl, combine the panko, Parmesan, paprika, garlic and onion powder in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Put the egg(s) in a separate shallow bowl. Put the egg bowl to the left of the panko bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken bites with salt. Dip them into the egg mixture and then toss them into the panko mixture until completely coated.
  4. Set skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the oil. Place the chicken bites in the skillet but don’t put all the bites in the pan at once – the bites will get soggy. You will have to cook a couple separate batches. Cook until crisp and golden on each side. When finished cooking the first batch, put on a separate plate and cook the second batch.
  5. When all batches of the chicken bites are golden, put them all back into the skillet. Pour in the bottle of BBQ sauce, stir until coated, cover and cook on low heat for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve over brown or white rice.
