Fill up on protein and pack in the flavor with this delicious recipe. To make these tasty Garlic Ginger Chicken Bites, simply combine garlic, ginger, lemon juice, oil, honey, cornstarch, turmeric, cumin and cayenne pepper (for a little kick!) and pour into a bag. Add the bite-size pieces of chicken breast and thoroughly toss to fully coat. Let this mixture marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours. (Pro tip: it’s perfect to do overnight so all the flavors soak in!). Whip up the homemade chive dip by mixing Greek yogurt, green onions, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Once the chicken has marinated for a few hours, add bite-size pieces to the air fryer and cook for eight minutes on each side.

No air fryer? No problem! Simply pop these Chicken Bites in the oven for about 30 minutes or until tender. Enjoy while they’re hot or put them out for a get-together. Whatever the occasion may be, one thing is for certain—your taste buds (and guests) will be thanking you!
