Thai Chicken Bites

Thai Chicken Bites |

When I had semesters off during college, I used to be a server at a restaurant called Boston Pizza. Ever heard of them? They made awesome cobb salads, incredible breaded chicken wings, amazing pizza {….obviously} and delicious Thai chicken bites.

When I was at the store the other day, I spotted some sweet chili sauce and it immediately made me think of this appetizer. So, I picked up a bottle and made a homemade version. SO glad I did. These are crispy, salty and sweet nuggets of heaven. And they’re pretty easy to make too. We ate ours for dinner, but these are great as snacks or appetizers.

Main Ingredients Needed

  • Chicken breast– boneless & skinless
  • All purpose flour
  • garlic powder-
  • Salt + pepper–  to taste
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Canola oil– or peanut oil for frying
  • Sweet chili sauce
  • Carrots- for garnish
  • Cilantro– for garnish

How To Make Thai Chicken Bites | Directions

Ok, so first you’re going to want to coat some chicken pieces in flour and egg and then pan fry until crispy. Pan frying is like deep frying but healthier. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. {Another reason I still haven’t lost that last 5 pounds perhaps?} So, after the chicken is crispy, you coat it in the sweet chili sauce and serve. Pretty quick and painless, no?

If you take a look at the ingredients list, the only thing you probably won’t have in your pantry is this sweet chili sauce. I found it on the shelves in my small town grocery store so you should be able to find it in yours! {I think I paid $3.49. Not bad, right?} This recipe easily doubles or triples too! You’ll just have to do more batches using that healthy pan frying method we just talked about! 🙂

So, give these a try guys! Hope you like them as much as we do!

    i made this last night and my husband ate every last piece and refused to share. its a good thing i doubled the recipe and left half in the kitchen. i’m very intimidated by frying…but the pay frying was a lot more managable for me…although i still haven’t mastered the flour, egg wash, flour without getting it all over me and the counter. it was a hit and i would definitely make it again! thanks for posting!

    Hi Lauren,
    Would you be able to freeze this dish and not have it go soggy? I thought about making it with a bed of rice and freezing it together for those hurried nights after work. What do you think?

    1. Lauren

      I don’t think there’s a way to do this without it going soggy. You can fry the chicken and freeze it plain. Then crisp it up in the oven and toss it in the sauce after.

    Funny, I just got a “finger cooking” menu thing in the mail from Boston Pizza and thought the thai bites looked good. Typed it in and you came up first! Thanks so much for the recipe, can’t wait to try it. I was just wondering what you served with them.

  12. Chung-Ah @ Damn Delicious

    I love thai food and this looks so easy/simple to make.

    And seriously, thank you for posting this recipe for only 2 servings. I either cook for myself or for me and the boyfriend when he’s in town so this recipe is absolutely perfect. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe 🙂

    I used to be a manager there and we got rid of them, but kept ordering more of the sauce cause everyone loved it so much. On Tuesdays we even had a silly thing that we called “Tie/Thai Tuesday”…all the servers wore ties with their uniform and all of the thai food was half off…and Mai Tai’s too! Thanks for the recipe, I miss eating them cause I don’t work there anymore

  15. Msrgaret

    i have been making these for years. I suggest that you also try it with fish and pork, it is just as delicious.
