READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

Include these chicken bites at your next buffet party or feature them as a main dish (enough for five main-dish servings). This recipe from Better Homes & Gardens' New Dieters's Cookbook couldn't be any easier or quicker...and, at 53 calories there is no guilt!

Great taste to these! I made chicken tenders, which are slightly larger, so had to bake them longer. The coating held up nicely and stayed crisp (I turned them once or twice during baking). I had to substitute garlic salt for powder because I didn't have any powder, so I did not add the optional salt. I also added about 1/4 tsp onion flakes to the breading. My whole family enjoyed these and we will be making them again. Thanks!
