Chicken Bites with Dijon Sauce

This recipe came about one night when my husband was working and I was home alone for dinner. I had an uncooked chicken breast leftover and was really looking to do something simple with it. It only takes a few minutes to fry these up and the dijon dipping sauce tastes way more intricate than it really is! This would also make a fun little appetizer for a party. Just leave a bundle of toothpicks next to it and its easy for people to snack on.



Ingredients-Chicken
1 chicken breast, diced into nuggets
½ cup flour
¾ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1 egg
2 tablespoon olive oil
 

Ingredients-Dijon Dipping Sauce
2 tablespoons mayo
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic rosemary seasoning (I use a 4 in 1 Bread Dip Seasonings jar-find this in the fresh baked bread section of your grocery store)

1. In a frying pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Season the flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour, egg, then the bread crumbs.
2. Cook chicken 2 and 1/2 minutes,flip each piece and cook an additional 2 and 1/2 minutes, covered.
3. To make the dippign sauce, mix the mayo, the dijon mustard, and the garlic rosemary seasoning. Serve immediately.

  1. I use chicken breast a lot and I am always looking for different ways to use them. Thank you for this recipe, I tried it last night with another sauce I had, but I am going to try your sauce in the future, as it sounds wonderful.
