Breaded Chicken Skewers

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

This Breaded Chicken Skewers recipe comes from my Aunt Tanya in Washington. Seems like everyone in our family has adopted these chicken skewers. It’s perfect for parties or your next family meal.

Marinating the chicken in mayo and breading makes it tender and juicy.  I give it two thumbs up.

Ingredients for the Breaded Chicken Skewer:

1 1/2 to 2 pounds Chicken breast or thigh, trimmed of fat
1 Cups Bread Crumbs (Progresso-Italian Style)
3/4 cup real mayonnaise
1 tsp Mrs Dash
Salt & Pepper
Canola Oil or Olive Oil to sauté
10 Bamboo skewers

Breaded Chicken Skewers

How to Make Chicken Skewers:

1. Cut the chicken into 3/4″ wide pieces. Place in a bowl and season with dash of salt, freshly ground  pepper and 1 tsp Mrs. Dash (or whatever your favorite seasoning is). Mix in 3/4 cup mayo and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

2. Put chicken on skewers (don’t pack them too tightly). Try to have the flat sides face in one direction for even cooking.

3. Pour bread crumbs on a large plate or platter. Roll the chicken skewers in bread crumbs until evenly coated.

4. In a large pan, add enough oil to generously cover the bottom (over medium/high heat). Saute the chicken skewers (3 to 4 at a time) until well browned on all sides.

5. Place on paper towels when done frying. You can make them earlier in the day and warm them up in the oven in a baking dish before your party or dinner.

    Hello,
    I am planning on making this recipe in the morning for an evening party. I read that you can reheat in the oven right before a party. What temperature do you suggest so the breading will be crisp and the chicken doesn’t get dried out? Thanks in advance for your response and recipe! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      January 12, 2018

      Hi Carra, I would suggest letting it come to room temperature about 30 minutes then preheat oven to 400 and bake chicken (arranged in a single layer on the baking sheet) for about 12-15 minutes or until chicken is hot. Reply

  • Elena
    October 30, 2017

    Can these be made an hour or two in advance and kept warm? Or will they get soggy? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 30, 2017

      Hi Elena, yes that would work fine. Although, I would suggest cooking them and then placing them on a baking sheet and warming them in the oven uncovered before serving. If you try to cover with foil while they are still hot to keep warm, they will get soft/soggy since you would be trapping steam. Reply

      Hi Victoria, I’m so happy you both love the recipe! It will be ok to marinate these overnight. They will be super flavorful. I would suggest not adding too much salt 🙂 Reply

    I made this today for the second time within the past month and our family loves it! I made them on the grill (with the bread crumbs) and they turned out great both times. All I did was put aluminum foil on the grill, spread a little bit of oil on it and ta-da. Last time, I forgot the oil and they were sticking and “ripping” quite a bit. They grill for roughly 20-25 mins, turn them every 3-4 mins or so – in case anyone cares lol 😉
    Thank you, Natasha, this one will need to be tucked away. Reply

    Hi Natasha!I would love to make this for my son’s birthday but I have a crazy question for you: do you first Slice chicken breast in half and then cut them into cubes or just directly in cubes no matter the size of the breast? thank you!! Reply

    These look wonderful …and all the comments seem to confirm this receipe is a keeper. I live in Australia and am unsure what the product ‘Mrs Dash’ contains. As we don’t have this product in Oz. Could you kindly let me know what he ingredients are?
    Thanks heaps Reply

      It’s a salt-free herb seasoning. You can substitute it with your favorite seasoning just check to see if it has salt in it, and if it does, you might cut back slightly on the salt in the recipe. Reply

      I haven’t tried baking them so I don’t know exactly what time to tell you; I’d bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes? Again, I haven’t tested this method, it’s just a guess-timate so test the chicken to be sure it’s done. Reply

      I bought the tiny ones at Pier 1, they are kinda tough to find that small, but just use the smallest ones you can find and put them in a larger skillet. I’ve also purchased some at Winco – they have 2 sizes (medium and large); get the medium. Reply

    I am so glad i came across your website, i love it! Love cooking and trying new things even though these are mostly traditional Russian recipes that we all know, but its still great to see how everyone has a little bit of a different twist to the same recipe! =) keep up the great work and may you be blessed!

    P.S. have you tried doing these skewers in the oven instead? Reply

    April 12, 2011

    Made these last night for dinner and my husband loved it! My son didn’t want to eat anything else except these! This morning I made him some oatmeal and he wouldn’t have any so when I reheated a skewer for him, he ate it up in no time 🙂 LOL. I want to make these for my husband’s upcoming birthday party! The only question I have is that I’m afraid of drying the meat out in the oven(if making them ahead of time and then reheating)…is there any suggestions you have for me on how not to do that? Thanks! The reason I’m asking this is because when they were hot off the skillet last night they were so tender and juicy and today they’re still delicious, but deffinitely not as moist. Reply

    • Natasha
      April 12, 2011

      I haven’t made these for a party ahead of time – except to make them in the morning and warm them in the oven with foil on top in the evening for the party. That worked out well. I would suggest prepping everything and skewering the marinated chicken the day before – which is the most time-consuming part for me (they will be really juicy if you marinate this long!), then bread them and fry the day of the party and warm them in the oven, covered with foil. Reply

    So, I made these tonight and they were just as soft and delicious as when I ate them at a party at Tanya’s house. And Bogie really liked them. The only thing I didn’t like is they are pretty labor-intensive–cutting the meat, marinading, skewering, rolling in crumbs, then standing over the stove frying them. But they sure are good. Thanks for the recipe! Reply

  • February 15, 2010
