Chicken Bites

This recipe is based on a recipe for steak bites, another family favorite.  It is easy, quick, and requires few ingredients.

Chicken Bites:

  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs-enough to feed your family (I use 1-2 lbs)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • olive oil, coconut oil, butter or ghee

Cut up your chicken in bite sized pieces.  Season to taste with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  My family likes a lot of flavor on these, so I usually use quite a bit of my favorite seasoning on them.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the chicken to the skillet, making sure not to crowd the pan.  A crowded pan will steam the chicken, rather than brown it.  I usually do at least two batches, keeping the first batch warm on a foil-covered plate while the second batch cooks.

Cook 3-5 minutes or until browned, then toss to brown the other side.  Cook another 3-5 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove from skillet and serve with roasted veggies, add to a stir fry, toss with a salad or along side spaghetti squash and tomato sauce.

Refrigerates well to have on hand for lunches through the week.
