Ingredients

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s)

Garlic powder

2 tsp, divided

Onion powder

½ tsp

Paprika

¾ tsp, divided

Cayenne pepper

¼ tsp, optional

Table salt

1 tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Olive oil

2 Tbsp

Dried plain breadcrumbs

¾ cup(s)

Lemon(s)

½ item(s)

Salted butter

1 Tbsp

Fresh parsley

½ cup(s), or cilantro, loosely packed, then chopped

Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken into bite-size chunks and add to a large bowl. Season with the onion powder, salt, pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, and the cayenne, if using.
  2. To the chicken, add the oil and breadcrumbs. Toss the chicken to coat, pressing so the crumbs adhere. Add to an air fryer basket and air fry at 400°F for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Alternatively, bake at 400°F for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, into a small bowl, grate the zest from the lemon half and squeeze the juice. Stir in the butter, 1 tsp garlic powder, remaining 1/4 tsp paprika, and the parsley. Serve the chicken bites with the lemon sauce.
