I make a Steak Bites recipe that is very similar to this. But, today, I had chicken breasts that I needed to cook.

I used little seasoning, butter, garlic, and chicken cut into cubes. Next, I flash fried them just a few minutes on all sides to get that nice color. That was all it took. It took me less than 20 minutes from start to finish.

For teenage boys that sometimes don’t want to slow down to a several course meal, this was ideal! A ѕuреr ԛuісk rесіре thаt расkѕ a flavor рunсh! Chicken has a good amount of protein per servings which means they’ll stay full longer.

The trісk to реrfесt chicken bіtеѕ іѕ gеttіng your раn оr ѕkіllеt nісе аnd hоt bеfоrе ѕеаrіng. Sеаr іn bаtсhеѕ tо prevent them frоm bоіlіng іnѕtеаd of frуіng аnd gеt a nісе сruѕt оn thе еdgеѕ. Thе mеаt stays іrrеѕіѕtіblу juісу and tеndеr оn thе іnѕіdе.

You can use whatever saute’ pan you have. I typically always reach for my cast iron skillets first. However, with the recipe, because I wanted to use as little oil as possible I chose a non-stick skillet.

I like to make my own seasoning, but you can cut down on the prep time even more by using a store-bought Cajun seasoning. However, I do recommend getting a low sodium version. Cajun seasonings seem to be very salty in my opinion.

  1. I made this last night and it was a huge it. Thanks for the recipe, its definitely a keeper! My family loved it!

  2. I was looking for a chicken recipe that was full of flavor, and this was it. I don’t like chicken, but feel I should eat it, so I am constantly trying a different chicken recipe every week, and this one was so good. Will have to look into a few others on this site.
