Directions

1. To make the chicken bites in garlic butter sauce: Start to slice chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks and season with salt, pepper, and onion powder.

2. Heat half butter and olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Gently stir-fry the chicken bites on all sides until golden brown.

3. Lower the temperature, add one teaspoon minced garlic, one teaspoon butter, and Italian seasoning and stir and cook with chicken bites until fragrant. You might have to work in batches to avoid crowding the pan and have steamed chicken bites instead of brown. 

3. Deglaze the skillet with a little chicken broth (or wine), hot sauce, and lemon juice. Toss the chicken bites in the sauce to coat well.

4. Garnish the garlic butter chicken bites with parsley, crushed chili pepper, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

  • You can enrich the sauce by adding some white wine.

  • For a variant of the chicken recipe, you can use whole chicken tenders instead. They’re delicious, and you can skip the cutting board! Check this chicken tenders recipe for inspiration.

What to serve with the chicken bites?

We like serving these garlic butter chicken bites with roasted or pan-seared asparagus, with green beans, broccoli, zucchini, or even cauliflower rice!

How long should we cook the chicken bites?

While a whole chicken breast must reach an internal temperature of 165ºF (74ºC), smaller bits will reach this temperature quicker – in a matter of 5 or 6 minutes, depending on how you cut the chicken pieces. Make sure to brown the chicken bites nicely. Proceed in batches if necessary, so you won’t crowd the pan and get steamed chicken bites instead of a nice golden crust.
