Pretzel Crusted Chicken Bites

  • 50 mins
  • 7 ingredients


  • Uncooked Diced Chicken 2-1/2 Cups
  • Flour 1/2 Cup
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Black Pepper 1/2 tsp
  • Large Eggs 2
  • Finely Crushed Pretzels 1-1/2 Cups
  • Non-Stick Spray


  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or coat heavily with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Beat eggs in another shallow dish. Pour pretzels into a third shallow dish. Coat each chicken piece in flour, shaking off any excess. Then, dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then generously roll in the pretzels, shaking off any excess. Add more crushed pretzels to the dish if you are running low.
  3. Place the chicken bites on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray each with nonstick spray to “seal” the breading, which will prevent the breading from staying raw and allows it to bake onto the chicken fingers.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes. Turn each piece over and continue baking until the outside is crisp and the centers are cooked through, about 6-8 minutes more. Baking times may vary, just make sure yours are cooked through. If you like them more brown, bake longer. Serve chicken bites with toothpicks (if using as an appetizer), and sauce of choice.
