      Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Toss the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture and lightly press the crumbs to the meat so that each piece is completely covered. Transfer the chicken pieces to the prepared baking sheet and lightly coat with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. Season with salt, to taste.
