Air Fryer Chicken Bites

Today we would like to share with you an easy air fryer chicken recipe.

Air Fryer Chicken Bites

We used 6 chicken thighs here, which is perfect for 4 people. It is a great appetizer and doesn’t need to take very long to make. The chicken turned out crispy on the out, while the inside is still juicy and flavorful.

Even though there is not any breading for the chicken, the air fryer method will still make it so crispy! In the same time, it will keep it at a lower calorie level.

The cilantro is just a nice garnish for the chicken. Not only does it add some nice color contrast, but also it goes so great with the seasoning flavor. When everything combines, they just go so well together!
