Description

I keep saying that there's nothing nicer than coming home and having dinner on the table in a matter of minutes. The great thing is that my family and dinner guests don't know how I do it. As one member said: "I love having these secret recipes up my sleeve." This hot and spicy chicken bites is certainly one of those recipes.

Note

The seasoning really depends on your liking. You can add as much or as little sriracha and hot pepper flakes as you like. The same applies to the rest of the seasoning.

The dish goes very well with rice or any fried veggie. Even a nice garden salad compliments it well.

Don't forget a nice glass of wine or cold beer.
