TIPS FOR MAKING EASY GLAZED CHICKEN BITES:

  • The chicken can be cooked in the air fryer as well. Just follow the air fryer directions on the back of the package.
  • This chicken can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • It can also be frozen. The chicken will need to be flash frozen first so it doesn’t all stick together when you go to package it for freezing. Lay all the cooked chicken, in a single layer, on a baking sheet and place it into the freezer for about an hour to flash freeze. Then remove and place the chicken into a freezer-safe ziptop bag then place back into the freezer. Chicken will keep for up to 3 months.
  • Re-heat chicken in an air fryer or oven. Microwave is not recommended.

    I love the videos. You make cooking look so easy. Just watched the video for Easy Honey Garlic Glazed Chicken. I’ve often thought you could do this using pre-made breaded chicken, aka chicken wings, so many different sauces/flavors. I just received a prompt to re-comitt to my subscription, of course I will confirm my subscription ! The videos are so fun ! Thank you for your stupendous work, it’s appreciated !

    This recipe is a keeper! YUMMY! I made it last night and we were both extremely surprised at how delicious it is! I would feel comfortable preparing this dish for company, it is that delicious! I wouldn’t recommend it for youngsters, as it is a bit spicey.

  3. I have never heard of popcorn chicken before, but the glazing sounds amazing and the photos are pretty, so I’m sure it’s delicious! And I love your engagement in saving the bees, they are really important to us.
