Thai Chicken Bites

My file of recipes that I want to try is so large that realistically I'll never make all of them. For every one I make I add two-four new recipes. So clearly the bottom will never be reached. When I complete my weekly meal plan I always scour through my file and try to find some new/interesting meals to try. However every now and then I find a new recipe and it doesn't go in the file. It goes directly onto the meal plan for the following week. This recipe is one of those. I saw it, I added it to the menu, and I made it. This is not healthy (at all...) but it's amazing. Served with a simple salad it creates a delicious dinner, or serve it at a party as an appetizer. Either way you can't lose! It's somewhat spicy, somewhat sweet, somewhat crispy... and very delicious.

3/4-1 pound chicken tenders, diced in chunks
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
Vegetable oil for frying
1/3 cup sweet chili sauce

1- Pour oil into the bottom of a non-stick skillet, about 1/2" to 1" deep.
2- In a small bowl combine the flour, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
3- In a separate bowl combine the egg and milk, beating well to combine.
4- Dip the chicken first in flour, than egg mixture, than flour. Repeat until all chicken is coated.

6- Toss gently with the sweet chili sauce. Serve hot.


  1. Make the mistake of looking at the pictures while I was hungry. It's like torture seeing food so good you cannot eat.

  2. Oh wow! Must make. I love, love, love Thai's sweet chili sauce but haven't ever made anything with it. That must change now and with this recipe!

  3. These look amazing, a perfect football-watching food this weekend!

  4. This sounds amazing! I love Thai flavors, and this chicken looks perfect! I can see why it went straight to the meal plan pile!

  5. Have made this recipe several times now. It is delicious! Thank you so much!
