TIPS FOR MAKING HONEY GARLIC 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.

HOW TO MAKE HONEY GARLIC GLAZED CHICKEN:
Cook popcorn chicken according to package directions.
Prepare glaze while chicken is cooking. In a large skillet, over medium heat, sauté the garlic in butter for about a minute. Whisk in soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, red chili pepper flakes, ginger powder and water.
Bring to a boil, whisking regularly. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes until glaze thickens slightly. Toss warm, cooked popcorn chicken in glaze. This is easiest to do right in the skillet. Serve glazed chicken over rice (optional) and garnish with sliced green onion.
