Chicken Bites

A super simple gluten free chicken recipe that the kids will love! Small succulent pieces of chicken coated in crushed corn chips – what’s not to love! Serve with avocado and a crunchy salad or satay sauce or hummus.

SERVES: 8 children 4 adults as a snack PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 15 mins


  • 1 kg chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g corn chips (no added salt)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil (for frying)
  • 3 teaspoons parsley, basil, turmeric or chilli (optional one or all)


  1. Gently cut the chicken breasts into small bite size pieces (4-5cm).
  2. Whisk eggs in a medium-size bowl until white and yolk are combined. You can add herbs or spices here such as parsley, basil, turmeric or chili.
  3. Crush the corn chips by pricking a hole in corn chip packet and rolling a rolling pin over the bag, or place the corn chips into a blender and process until crumb like consistency is achieved. Place corn chip crumbs into a bowl and the beaten eggs into a separate bowl.
  4. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mix and then roll the chicken pieces in the corn chip crumbs until they are completely coated.
  5. Place on a plate to set whilst you are rolling the remaining pieces.
  6. Pour olive oil into a medium frying pan on medium to high heat and cook the chicken pieces until they are slightly brown and cooked through – approximately 5 minutes each side.
  7. Place cooked chicken bites onto kitchen paper towel to soak up excess oil.
  8. Alternatively, bake them in a hot oven (180-200°C) for 10-15 minutes until pieces are golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
