I love simple recipes and that is exactly what these new tasty little cajun chicken bites are! Chicken is my go-to dish, 9 times out of 10 I make chicken for dinner, it’s just what we all prefer at my house, we also all love a little spice. These chicken bites go great served with a salad, you can add them to a wrap and build your own sandwich, or get creative and add them to a build your own pizza for pizza night. They are great to have in the fridge for building meals throughout the week and easy grab-and-go lunches for work. The recipe makes 4 servings at 184 calories and 1-4PP per serving. The personal points will depend if chicken is a 0PP food for you, if it is then a serving will be 1PP, if you add points for chicken it is 4PP.

Tips and suggestions…

You can easily double this recipe if you want to have extra chicken in the fridge for easy meal prep throughout the week, the chicken will be good in the fridge in an air-tight container for 3-4 days.

If you like lots of spice feel free to add in extra cajun, cayenne, or chili powder. We all have different spice levels so you can always go lighter or heavier to suit you.

These will cook great in the air fryer as well and you can eliminate the olive oil which will save on points if you are following WW.

I have two different air fryers and I use them both often, Cuisinart Air-fryer convection oven, and Ultrean air fryer
