Delicious Garlic Mushroom Chicken Bites

Must Try

Low Carb Garlic Mushroom Chicken Bites is the EASIEST dinner to throw together! Do it all in one skillet and let the flavours BLOW YOUR MIND!

Mushroom Chicken Bites seared and cooked in buttery pan juices filled with herbs and spices, is the perfect dinner for anyone low on time. All you need is one pan, a wooden spoon and a stove top. DONE.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN BITES

Normally, when you think of chicken bites, you think of chicken nuggets or bite-sized pieces of crumbed chicken like our chicken garlic chicken strips or chicken tenders. With this recipe, we have kept it ALLLL low carb and replaced breadcrumbs with ALL OF THE FLAVOURS!

The best part? The mushrooms release their butter, garlic and seasoning flavours into the pan with the chicken, forming a tantalising sauce that makes for the best mushroom chicken bites recipe you’ve ever tried.

Much like our garlic mushroom chicken thighs, these easy chicken bites are low fuss and can be on your plate in minutes. A fair jump from our more indulgent Chinese lemon chicken recipe, these chicken bites are a little better for the waistline, meaning you can dig into these tender, healthy chicken bites without an ounce of guilt.

HOW LONG TO COOK CUBED CHICKEN

The recipe calls for 1-inch bite-sized pieces. For this reason, they only need to be cooked in a hot pan for 5-6 minutes or cook until they are browned all over and just cooked through! If your pan isn’t large enough, cook them in two batches to:

Avoid overcrowding the pan

Prevent boiling the chicken bites

Get a nice, golden sear all over

Once the rest of the ingredients have been cooked, those garlic mushroom chicken bites get added back into the pan to warm through and continue cooking until it’s all done!

WHAT DO YOU EAT WITH CHICKEN BITES?

That’s the beauty of this recipe. It already comes fully loaded with ALL the good stuff! Mushrooms, bell peppers and shallots – SO MUCH FOOD. You can serve over cauliflower rice to keep it low carb, or go for gold with plain rice or egg noddles.

For the ultimate flavour bomb, pile spoonfuls of your mushroom chicken bites onto toasted garlic bread for a quick and tasty snack.

FAQ’s

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN CHICKEN BITES ARE COOKED?

A meat thermometer in the kitchen is your best friend! Pop the thermometer into the centre of the mushroom chicken bite. If the temperature meets 165°F/75°C, you’re good to go.

If you don’t have a meat thermometer, you can always try the poke method. It is exactly what it sounds like: find a knife or skewer and poke a whole or slice into the chicken. If the juices run clear, the chicken is ready to eat. If the juices are still pink, it needs more time.
