These bites have been a party favorite at our house for many years. You can make the sauce the night before to make day-of prep even easier. —Kathy Green, Layton, NJ

  • SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons canola oil


  1. In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs, sesame seeds and parsley. In a separate shallow bowl, mix mayonnaise and seasonings. Dip chicken in mayonnaise mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere to all sides.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken in batches; cook until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally and adding additional oil as needed. Serve with sauce. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen (3/4 cup sauce).

"Wow! This recipe was quite the hit in the household. I had made nearly double the chicken in case my son had friends over. It was a good thing he did not because just our family of 4 devoured. I found it helpful to add most of the chicken to the mayonnaise mixture at one time. My mayonnaise mixture was a bit thick and doing one of time would have left me with not enough for all of the chicken"

"This was very good. I used chicken breasts, and cooked for 12 minutes on each side on medium heat. Very good with the sauce."

"Instead of cutting these into little bites, I cooked 4 breasts for my family for a dinner meal. They loved it! One of their favorites!"
