Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken into 2-3 squares, being careful to remove any tendons.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients in a bowl or zip-top bag. Add chicken, mix thoroughly, and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour and up to 4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400º. Line a flat or rimmed baking sheet with parchment. If desired, placed 1 T butter cut in pieces and scattered on the baking sheet. If baking sheet does not have a rim, be sure to fold the parchment up on the edges so that butter doesn’t go over all the oven. Place the sheet in the oven as it preheats.
  4. Beat egg in a bowl until yolk and white are mixed. Place flour on a flat plate. Remove chicken from marinade and place in bowl. When pieces are coated, add them one at a time to floured plate, flipping them to get a dusty cover. Alternatively, you can pour the flour in a paper bag and shake 2 pieces at a time. If using butter, remove sheet from oven; you can optionally mix a little oil with the butter. If not, simply spray a parchment lined baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place chicken pieces on sheet.
  5. Bake 10 minutes, then turn chicken and bake another 3-4 minutes on the other side. Serve as is with veggie sides or use in salads or bowls.
