This recipe is based on a recipe for steak bites, another family favorite. It is easy, quick, and requires few ingredients.
- boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs-enough to feed your family (I use 1-2 lbs)
- garlic powder
- olive oil, coconut oil, butter or ghee
Cut up your chicken in bite sized pieces. Season to taste with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. My family likes a lot of flavor on these, so I usually use quite a bit of my favorite seasoning on them.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken to the skillet, making sure not to crowd the pan. A crowded pan will steam the chicken, rather than brown it. I usually do at least two batches, keeping the first batch warm on a foil-covered plate while the second batch cooks.
Cook 3-5 minutes or until browned, then toss to brown the other side. Cook another 3-5 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from skillet and serve with roasted veggies, add to a stir fry, toss with a salad or along side spaghetti squash and tomato sauce.
Refrigerates well to have on hand for lunches through the week.
