chicken bites

jill reminded me recently how fabulous these ritz/parmesan cheese chicken bites are. she makes them frequently and i hadn't had them in years. so i made these last week. use about 3/4 sleeve of ritz crackers and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. use food processor to crush up crackers and blend with cheese.

cut up 1 lb chicken into bite-size pieces.
dip into melted butter (do you have a healthier alternative that will still be effective and tasty?)
then dip into cracker mixture
place on baking sheet. i lined with parchment paper (my recent addiction).

bake at 400* for about 30 minutes. flip half way through to evenly crisp.

we enjoyed with a brown/white rice mixture and veggies.
tasty with anything... as long as you have bbq sauce on the plate!

once again - pic from my phone!


  1. Yum! I've seen recipes similar to this before. I think I will do strips instead of bite-size pieces...less work :) I would just use a "healthy" butter substitute. (I use Promise spread instead of butter/margarine.) A light coat of olive oil might work, too. I'll try this (strip style) next week...maybe with some noodles...kind of like chicken parmesan.

  2. ooh, good idea! that sounds tasty. and yeah, i'll try evoo next time i do it.

  3. extra virgin olive oil :o)

    picked it up from rachel ray...

  4. Sounds DELISH right now!! Seriously YUM!

  5. the kids looooooooooooooove them!

    we've made them with saltines before too!

  6. I made this last night, but in chicken strip form (the less I have to handle raw chicken the better, and this made for less cutting). Yummy! I also served with brown rice and Ryan enjoyed with Sweet Baby Ray's.
