Garlic Herb Chicken Bites Recipe: A Quick Dinner Recipe or Meal Prep Option

"Can’t ever have enough tasty plus quick chicken recipes!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "Garlic herbed chicken bites are fantastic for meal prep! I added one cup of zucchini and a half cup of quinoa to my meal prep containers along with about four ounces of chicken bites. Thoroughly enjoyed this meal prep!"

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free flourarrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons clarified butter or ghee (divided)
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • handful of fresh parsley, minced (about 1/4 cup or to taste)
  • handful of fresh oregano, minced (about 1/4 cup or to taste)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Chop the chicken and place it into a bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, to taste, and then sprinkle with the flour or cornstarch and stir to coat well.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and one-third of the chicken with some space in between the pieces. Cook the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, then set aside. Repeat with the remaining ghee/butter and chicken. We want to do this step in small batches so the chicken can crisp up and get nicely golden. Once all the chicken bites are done, place them all together into the skillet.
  3. Stir in the broth, garlic and fresh herbs. Continue to cook over medium heat, for 2 minutes, or until hot and the garlic releases its flavor. Serve chicken immediately over rice or quinoa.

Note: Leftovers will keep four days in the refrigerator or up to one month in the freezer.
