  • 1 lb chicken breasts skinless and boneless cut into small 1 inch cubes
  • 4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs or corn flake crumbs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large Dutch Oven or pot add vegetable oil so that you have at least 1 1/2 inches deep. Heat the oil so that it's around 350 F degrees.
  • Meanwhile season the chicken with salt, pepper and 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. Set aside.
  • In a shallow plate add the eggs, heavy cream and another tsp of the Italian seasoning and whisk well.
  • In another shallow plate add the breadcrumbs with 1 tsp of Italian seasoning and mix.
  • Finally, add the flour with the last tsp of Italian seasoning to a shallow plate and mix.
  • Arrange your shallow plates so that you have the flour mixture, egg mixture and finally the breadcrumb mixture. You'll need an empty plate, or I used a baking sheet to place the breaded chicken in.
  • Dredge the chicken pieces through the flour, then the egg mixture and finally the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Fry a few pieces of chicken at a time, so that they don't stick together. They should take about 6 to 7 minutes before they're cooked through. You might want to cut into a piece to make sure it's no longer pink inside. Continue frying in batches until done.
  • Season fried chicken with salt and Italian seasoning, if preferred.
  • Serve the chicken with lemon wedges.


If you want crispier chicken bites you use Corn Flake crumbs.
