Description

These Garlic Butter Chicken Bites with lemon asparagus are an easy lighter version of your favorite chicken nuggets and they take about 30 minutes to make.

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ pound Chicken Breasts, Boneless, Skinless
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Sea Salt And Ground Black Pepper To Taste
  • ¼ cups Plain Flour
  • 2  Large Eggs, Beaten
  • 1-¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • FOR THE LEMON ASPARAGUS:
  • 15  Spears Asparagus - 1 Large Bunch, Ends Trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
  • 1  Lemon - Juiced (or 2 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice)
  • ½ Tablespoons Lemon Zest - Or Zest Of 1/2 Lemon
  • Sea Salt And Ground Pepper, To Taste
  • OPTIONAL GARNISHES:
  • ½  Lemon, Cut Into Wedges
  • Curly Parsley - Chopped, For Garnish

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Cut the chicken into large bite-sized cubes, then sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and ground black
pepper.

Prepare 3 bowls: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and a third with panko breadcrumbs.

Add one plate next to the bowls to hold the coated chicken.

Lightly coat each piece of chicken with flour, then dip into the beaten eggs, then into the panko breadcrumbs, gently pressing to adhere breadcrumbs to all sides. Repeat with all chicken pieces and set aside on the prepared plate.

Heat a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat.

Add butter and olive oil, and once hot carefully place the coated chicken bites into the skillet.

Fry the chicken, turning to brown all sides, for 3-5 minutes, until a crisp crust forms. You don’t need to fully cook the chicken at this stage, as we will finish them into the oven.

Once all the chicken bites are nicely golden, bring them to the side of the pan.

Place the asparagus into the pan next to the chicken.

Drizzle the melted butter and lemon juice over, then sprinkle with lemon zest, salt, and pepper.

Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and bake until the chicken is golden brown and fully cooked, and the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 10-12 minutes.

Add garnishes of choice.
