Number of Servings: 2


    1/3 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken, cut into bite-size chunks
    2 tablespoons hot sauce


Serve with more hot sauce, if desired, or blue cheese dressing. (Nutrition info not included!)
Don't forget the celery!


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine the bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a shallow dish.
Place the chicken and hot sauce in another shallow dish, stirring well to evenly coat the chicken.
Place the chicken, one piece at a time, in the breadcrumbs.
Use one hand for the wet ingredients and one for the dry ingredients so that the bread crumbs will not clump.
Place the chicken on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over the chicken and bake for an additional 7-8 minutes or until fully cooked.

    If you had a problem with the oven temp, it might be your oven needs adjusting. Hang an Oven Temperature Gauge from a center rack to check. To adjust, simply pull off knob. There will be a small set screw. Turn left to raise oven temp and right to lower it. Over time, all ovens need adjusting. - 2/14/11

    This chicken was so good and easy to make. My husband loved it. We made a triple recipe and divided it up into single serving sizes so we could grab some for lunch. I will definitley make it again. - 9/23/09

    Ovens can vary, I found that 375 wasn't hot enough for this recipe and the coating was soggy. When I bumped the temperature up to 450 the chicken crisped up nicely. - 2/7/10

    Cheg Meg did it again, they were spicy! My husband was wary when I was making them, then he couldn't get enough! They were a little spicy for me so I may tone it down next time but they were still amazing. Make sure not to spray nonstick spray, it will make them soggy and cook at a higher temp - 7/1/10
