Honey Barbecue Chicken Bites

Honey Barbecue Chicken Bites ~ a quick, easy appetizer for any occasion.

At the last minute some folks dropped out of the recipe contest Foodies TV is having on behalf of Moore's Marinades and Sauces, so I agreed to step in and fill one of those spots. I am excited about their convenient Honey Barbecue Wing Sauce and making some little appetizer bites for Father's Day weekend! Come along and see just how simple and quick these little bites are.
I want to thank Moore's Marinades and Sauces for supplying me with a generous array of their many sauces and marinades. Since they were delivered I have loved creating recipes with them. I already had some chicken available choosing the Honey Barbecue Wing Sauce was basically a no-brainer.
  • 1 lb. chicken breast (boneless/skinless) cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup Moore's Honey Barbecue Wing Sauce + 1/4 cup
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • small wooden skewers for serving
  1. After preparing your chicken by washing under cold water and removing any tendons the butcher's did not get, dry the chicken with paper towels.
  2. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  3. Add the chicken to a glass bowl and pour over 1/2 cup of the Wing Sauce. Marinate in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes.  
  4. Remove the chicken and get a skillet hot over high heat. (I used my cast iron skillet.) Let the skillet get hot then add in the olive oil and swirl around.
  5. Turn heat to medium high and add in the chicken pieces being careful not to over crowd the pan. Do in batches as necessary.
  6. Sear the chicken on all sides and quickly and cook for about 2-3 minutes then remove them to a clean plate.
  7. When all are finished searing and cooking, add them all back to the pan and pour the 1/4 cup of the Honey Barbecue Wing Sauce over them.  Toss to coat and again move them to the plate.
  8. Take the chicken and skewer each piece for serving, or just place the wooden skewers for people to use.

How easy is that? And they are some tasty! There's a bit of heat in the marinade which comes as an after shock, making your tongue tingle a touch. But it's good, very good. Was my husband ever pleased with this snack - he ate almost the entire platter!!! So if you are planning a gathering I suggest you make a lot.
