Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Heather Hetler


6 cups Rice Crunch ‘Ems, Gluten-Free Rice Chex™ or other rice cereal
2 Tbsp sorghum flour
2 Tbsp tapioca flour
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 tsp salt
4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 to 1 cup olive oil


Preheat oven to 400 °F.

Using a food processor, combine rice cereal, flours, and spices, and blend until small crumbs are well-blended.

Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Pour 1/2 of crumb mixture into a shallow dish, such as a round cake pan, and pour 1/2 cup of oil into a second pan. Dip chicken bites into olive oil, covering the entire piece with oil, then into the crumb mixture, turning to coat. As the crumb mixture gets “wet” from the olive oil, it will become necessary to pat the crumbs on to each piece. Replenish the pans with fresh crumb mixture and oil as necessary. Any extra crumb mixture can be saved in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Place the chicken bites onto a wire cooling rack (a grid will keep them from falling through) until they are all covered. Then place bites onto baking sheets, lightly greased or lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. While they are baking, clean the wire cooling rack. Immediately after baking, place the bites on the rack. This will keep them from getting soggy.

These bites freeze very well. To reheat, bake at 400 ° until warmed through, again cooling on a wire rack.

Serve with Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce, Honey, or other sauces.

Challenger’s statement:

Our family loves sports of all kinds, including football. We also love hosting parties and watching games in big groups. One important factor for family football parties is food that is safe for everyone. Since other children wander around with food, and drop it everywhere, I want the food at my house to be safe. I know I’ll be involved in watching the game, and not in monitoring every bite of food, so making everything safe is the best bet. These chicken bites make everyone happy–they are allergy friendly, common party food, and kids love them!
