Sweet Chilli Chicken Bites



When having a party or a gathering involving food, you can’t really go wrong with bite sized… well, anything. One of my personal favourite recipes is my sweet chilli chicken bites – similar to KFC Popcorn Chicken (which is the best thing to get there – maybe a twister if I’m being “healthy”.) I decided to do my own take on these, and fry them in a shallow pan rather than drowning them in oil, just to give them a little less grease and a little more yum. With these, you can serve them already covered in the sweet chilli sauce, or have the sweet chilli on the side in a small bowl to use as a dipping sauce. I did the latter for my spring soirée, just in case somebody (who would no longer remain my friend) didn’t like sweet chilli sauce – luckily, everybody did, so my friendships remained intact. I also made the sweet chilli chicken bites bigger than standard popcorn chicken, but you can cube the chicken breasts in whatever size you’d like.

  1. Add a few dashes of oil into a frypan, over a medium heat.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into desired size, advisably bite sized or smaller.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  4. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper together.
  5. Toss chicken into the dry mixture, then toss in egg/milk mixture, and then again in dry mixture. Ensure chicken is completely coated each time.
  6. Places chicken pieces into frypan once the oil is hot enough, and fry until crispy and golden. This should be a couple of minutes each side.
  7. Drain on paper towels, then serve with sweet chilli sauce either as a garnish or a side.
