Thai Chicken Bites

My husband doesn’t grocery shop. Partly because, I am weird and love to grocery shop, and partly because when he does, he either comes home with random things, or I field multiple phone calls regarding the items on my list. It’s just not worth it to send him to the store. Last time he grocery shopped was the day we brought Avery home from the hospital. We literally had no food in the house, as I had planned to do a major grocery shopping stock up trip the day after she was born. Someone had other plans for me. :)

Nevertheless, I sent him off to the store with an extensive list, and I stayed home trying to figure out how to keep our 2-day old alive. He returned with everything on the list, as well as a bottle of sweet chili sauce. I asked him what he planned on doing with it, and he said, “I thought maybe you could make some Asian food with it!”

Sure dude. In my spare time.

Now that we’re three weeks in to this whole parenting thing, life is getting somewhat easier, and I’m finding some free time to play in the kitchen. (Thankfully my baby likes to nap.) I made these Thai Chicken Bites for lunch one day, and they were incredible. Super easy to make, just bread some chicken and pan fry it, then top it with the sweet chili sauce. Not exactly the healthiest meal in the world, but better for you than take-out.

Thai Chicken Bites

Yield: 2 servings


  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large chicken breast {boneless & skinless}
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Canola or peanut oil for frying
  • 1/3 cup sweet chili sauce
  • Carrots & cilantro, for garnish


  1. In a deep skillet, pour 1-2 inches of oil and preheat over medium heat
  2. Cut your chicken into bite sized pieces and set aside. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper. In another dish, whisk together the egg and milk. Toss your chicken in the flour mixture first, then into the egg mixture, and once again into the flour mixture.
  3. Cook the chicken in the hot oil until golden brown on each side, approximately 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the sweet chili sauce. Top with shredded carrots and cilantro and serve immediately.

    Oh my gosh, my husband is the same way! We always joke that he’s the only person who can buy 4 things at the grocery store and still spend 150 bucks. He is the worst grocery shopper ever!

    I get so sick of chicken so this recipe is perfect for me! I’m definitely going to jazz up my salads with some thai chicken bites soon!
