Crispy Asian Chicken Bites

We are in the holiday season which means time for appetizers and lots of them. This is an easy appetizer that can be made in less than 30 minutes making it perfect for the holidays.

These Crispy Asian Chicken Bites are guilt free because they are baked and not fried. The chicken is tossed in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce made of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and honey. The sauce is a bit spicy thanks to the sriracha and crushed red pepper flakes.

Crispy Asian Chicken Bites Recipe

This is the perfect finger food for the holidays or game day.

Tender on the inside with a nice crunch on the outside. Just how I like my chicken.

The chicken is extra crunchy thanks to the panko breading. A simple 3 step breading made of flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs. A tip for breading your chicken. Make sure to use both hands. One hand for wet ingredients and one hand for dry. This helps from getting the dreaded breading hands.

Baked Crispy Asian Chicken Bites

These chicken bites are simple. flavorful and dripping with sauce.

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and cubed them into perfectly bite sized portions.

This chicken can be made into a meal by adding brown or white rice.

To make these easy Chicken Bites bread the chicken starting with flour and ending with the panko breadcrumbs. Place the chicken bites in a 400 degree oven and bake for 15 minutes. While the chicken is baking I make the Sweet and Spicy Asian Sauce. Garlic is sauteed in oil and the rest of the ingredients are tossed in. A corn starch slurry is used to thicken up the sauce. Once the chicken is done I toss it in the sauce and serve immediately.

  • Hi Kelley – These Crispy Asian Chicken Bites look amazing. I came in from Dishfolio strictly because of the photo you posted, and was happily surprised to see that you are from Delaware. I’m a Delaware food blogger, too. You’re the first DE blogger I’ve “met” so far. You site looks great!

    • Hi Elizabeth!

      Thank you! It is so nice to meet a Delaware blogger as well. Can’t wait to check out your blog!

    I recently made these and they were absolutely delicious! I always try to make Asian chicken but can never get the sauce right, but this was perfect. I had to make two batches of sauce for the amount of chicken I made, and the only thing I changed was in my second batch, I only sprinkled red pepper into it instead of doing the 1/4 teaspoon. If you are sensitive to spicy things I suggest doing this! My nose was actually running from how spicy it was. Other than that, it was absolutely delicious and gives me leftovers for a few meals. Will definitely be making this again!

    • I am so happy to hear you liked this recipe Alexandria! Thanks for the tip about the red pepper flakes. I do like things a bit spicy so that may be a little hot for others.

      Thank you for trying the recipe!

    Wow!!!! Just stumbled across this amazing recipe – we absolutely loved it so much. The sauce is super tasty. We made a picked cabbage salad with it and the two went together just perfectly.
    Thank you for this!
    Will definitely be making it again!

    • Hi!

      I would really recommend using the cornstarch to help thicken up the sauce. You could omit but the sauce will be thin.
