Notes

Store any leftover chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

This healthy chicken recipe is also fantastic for meal prep, guaranteeing delicious meals throughout the week. When you're ready to enjoy again, simply reheat in a toaster oven for a quick and satisfying meal.

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Start by patting dry boneless skinless chicken breasts with paper towels. On a cutting board, cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces (about 1 - 1 1/2 inch chunks), aiming for equal sizes to ensure even cooking.

3. Combine the chicken pieces with finely grated garlic, avocado oil, paprika, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to coat the chicken evenly with the seasoning.

4. Spread the seasoned chicken pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet (optionally lined with parchment paper for easier cleanup).

5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 18 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Please note that cooking time may vary depending on your oven. Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F (74°C).
6. Once done, remove the chicken from the oven. For an extra touch of richness and flavor, add a tablespoon of butter to the middle of the baking sheet (or ghee for Paleo / Whole30). Use a spatula to stir the chicken and coat it evenly with the melted butter. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve hot and enjoy your perfectly seasoned oven-baked chicken breast bites!
