Air Fryer Chicken Bites

Air Fryer Chicken Bites

Boneless, skinless chicken breast chunks are used to make these simple, high-protein Air Fryer Chicken Bites—perfect for a last-minute meal! I make a big amount and use half of it to prepare the week’s meals.

Additionally, cooked chicken bits can be frozen:

  • After letting the chicken cool, place the chunks on a sheet pan and flash-freeze.
  • Once frozen, move to a bag or container that is safe to be kept in the freezer for up to three months.
  • To eat, either thaw them overnight in the fridge or reheat them straight from frozen in the air fryer for around five minutes at 350°F, shaking the basket halfway through.

Ideas for Accompanying Chicken Bites

  • These easy chicken pieces go well with variety of sides. Main Course: Serve this chicken over rice, beans, or sweet potatoes accompanied by Brussels sprouts, green beans, or green salad. Tacos: Place tortillas around the chicken and cover with cheese and salsa. Bowls: Combine chicken, vegetables, and fried egg in grain bowl and top with more Italian dressing. Salads: To provide more protein, add the meat to any salad.


  • 3 pounds of cubed chicken breast (organic preferred), sized at 1 inch.
  •  1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon store-bought or homemade Adobo seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dry Italian herbs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon optional Sazon seasoning


  • Combine the chicken, kosher salt, dried Italian herbs, adobo seasoning, and optional sazon in a big bowl.
  • Apply a little layer of oil to the basket. Shaking the basket, air fried the chicken for 12 minutes at 400F in an even layer, in batches as needed, until it’s golden and cooked through.
