Short-order chicken bites

James Tse

These nuggets use two everyday condiments - mustard and relish - to create a moist, tangy coating for chicken breasts. They're delicious dipped into salsa or plum sauce.


  • 1/4 cup sweet green-pickle relish
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • Preheat oven to 425F (220C). Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly oil. In a large bowl, stir relish with mustard. Place bread crumbs in a pie plate.
  • Slice each chicken breast into 5 or 6 chunky nuggets. Add a few pieces to relish mixture and stir to evenly coat. Remove one piece at time and place in bread crumbs. Coat with crumbs. Shake off excess, then place on foil. Repeat with remaining pieces.
  • Bake in centre of preheated oven until chicken is golden and cooked through, from 20 to 25 min. Also great with honey mustard or yogourt.
