What am I chopped liver? No... Chicken.
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 375.
In a small bowl, mix together the salt and next 5 ingredients. Place raw chicken breasts on a greased jelly roll pan, and rub both sides of each piece with the spice mixture. Place pan in preheated oven and cook for 30-35 minutes, flipping the chicken over after the first 15 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate and chill, uncovered, in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until cool and firm.
Place chilled chicken on a cutting board and cut into cubes, first cutting each piece into 4-5 slices from top to bottom and then cutting into 4-5 slices from side to side.
Use chicken immediately, or divide into portions and freeze for up to 3 months in zip-top plastic freezer bags.
