How to make honey garlic chicken bites

The method to make the chicken bites recipe is super simple:

  • Cut chicken breast into cubes, about 1-inch pieces. 
  • Dust chicken with cornstarch, salt, and pepper (cornstarch gives the chicken bites a slight crust so the sauce sticks to it better!)
  • Sear chicken bites on all sides, then add garlic, lemon juice, chicken stock, and honey.
  • Cook until the sauce thicken and get sticky. Sprinkle the honey garlic chicken bites with parsley and red chili pepper flakes.

Tips for the chicken bites recipe

The secret to this recipe is to make sure you cut 1-inch bite-sized chicken pieces. This way, they only need to be cooked in a hot skillet for 6-8 minutes, until they are browned all over and cooked just right! If your skillet isn’t large enough, cook the chicken bites in two batches to avoid overcrowding the pan and having steamed chicken instead of that nice golden sear!

Directions

1. To make the honey garlic chicken bites: Add the chicken cubes to a large salad bowl together with cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Mix to evenly coat all the chicken pieces.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat. Melt butter into the oil and add the chicken cubes and cook on all sides until golden brown, for about 6-8 minutes. You may need to work in batches, to avoid overcrowding the pan and steaming the chicken bites.

3. Once the chicken is done cooking, pour over the garlic, honey, chicken stock, lemon juice, and hot sauce (if using) and stir to completely coat; allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes to meld all the flavors and reduce a little until it sticks to the chicken bites.

4. Garnish the honey garlic chicken bites with fresh chopped parsley and red chili pepper flakes, then serve over rice. Enjoy! ❤️
