Crispy chicken Parmesan bites with easy marinara dipping sauce. A simple, addictive and crowd-pleasing dish that’s fun to eat. Ready in under 30 minutes.
For the chicken Parmesan bites:
Preheat the oven to 475 F.
Add the following into a large seal-able plastic bag: panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence. Seal the bag and shake the ingredients until everything is well combined.
Add the cubed chicken to the bag, seal, and shake again until every piece of chicken is well coated in the breadcrumb mixture.
Arrange the breaded chicken on a parchment-lined baking sheet so that no two pieces are overlapping. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the chicken.
Measure a tablespoon of olive oil and carefully drizzle a bit of oil over each piece of chicken. Repeat. Bake in the oven for about 15-16 minutes, or until the breading becomes crispy and golden. Serve.
For the 12-minute homemade marinara:
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Place the onion, carrot, and celery in the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the diced tomatoes, 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence, and 1½ teaspoons garlic powder. Stir to combine. Reduce the heat to medium and allow the sauce to simmer for about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Turn off the heat and puree the sauce with an immersion hand blender (or transfer sauce to a blender or food processor to puree).
Serve as a dipping sauce for the chicken Parmesan bites. Or combine the marinara sauce with some cooked penne pasta and top with chicken Parmesan bites.
