  • 3 Boneless, skinless chicken thighs, all visible fat removed and the chicken dried with paper towel, cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch nuggets
  • 2 Tbsp. Wondra flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Chopped garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. Chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • 1 Medium Lemon, quartered


  • Make sure the chicken cubes are dried with paper towels (it helps them get real crispy) and place them in a medium bowl.  Toss the chicken with the flour, salt, and pepper.   Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat until very hot but not smoking.   Add the chicken cubes so they aren’t touching and cook, turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 3 1/2 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the garlic and parsley in a small bowl.
  • Add the butter and the parsley mixture to the skillet and sauté for 1 minute longer, shaking the skillet occasionally to coat the chicken.
  • Serve with wedges of lemon and serve it right away so it stays nice and crispy.
