There are days when you crave for something crunchy, hot and filling. This happens mostly in winters (with me at least) when the temperature drops your body craves for warm, comforting food to keep those winter chills away. While these seasonal craving are unavoidable, one can simply not resist hot crispy chicken on any day specially when it’s tender and spicy too – all in one bite.

These chicken bites are a no-hassle finger food, one that can be prepared quickly and the best thing you can get your kids to help. It would be a nice kitchen activity, simply set up a dredging station with bowls of egg and coating and let the kids do this stuff. This will keep them busy while it’s being prepared and then everyone gets to enjoy these delicious chicken bites. So, it’s a win-win. 
There is a secret ingredient in this recipe that makes these chicken bites more crispy and add flavor to it. The ingredient is in it’s coating. These chicken bites are coated with cracker crumbs which give it the crunch, flavor, makes it healthy and full of Proteins!

I’m sharing two ways to prepare these delicious chicken bites. One is a healthy version and the other not so healthy version. I just want everyone to enjoy these so that nobody feels left out and hey, these are kid-friendly too.

I love to have these as it is but you can have it the way you like it, the choices are endless. Simply prepare these chicken bites and a bowl of salad – there you have a quick lunch/dinner ready! It’s a great evening snack to have with chai or your favorite drink. Having friends over? No problem, serve these Cripsy Chicken Bites with a side of french fries, coleslaw and some cold drinks. The options are endless and nobody can say NO to such deliciousness. Trust me, you’ll get Big Smiles in return.
