There are many people in the world that love eating chicken breasts.
I’m not one of them.
In fact, I would take the tiny flavorful chicken butt, over a huge slab of breast meat any meal of the week.
For those of you that know the chicken butt, you know the flavor I’m talking about.
But, alas, this recipe is not about the butt.
This is about the breasts.
The chicken breast for me, lacks flavor, fat and depth. And, all the things that make food mouthwateringly delicious.
So, what do I do to improve that bland breast experience?
It’s simple… I add flavor and fat.
This is as easy as chopping the breast into smaller pieces, quickly frying it in a little fat, and combining it with aromatic culinary herbs.
Below is my recipe for Herbed Chicken Bites.
BTW – I’m not in denial. It’s still chicken breast, only now it’s been amplified!
You can eat these flavorful little bites with rice or quinoa, or put them onto your favorite salad.
They are totally delish!
Whether you are a breast lover, or not, I’m sure you’re going to love them.
