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 point per serving on WW.

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

  1. Hi, Thank you for all the wonderful recipes you pass along to us. I was wondering if the Cajun Chicken bites could be cooked in an air fryer? Thank you

  2. Why don’t you have the WW link do we can calculate your recipes to our individual PP? All other bloggers do?

    1. Hi Patricia, so I am based in Canada, if I share a link it will only work for those WW members that are also in Canada, most of my traffic comes from the U.S, it’s unfortunate but that is the way it is as WW has different login platforms for the 2 countries, so all those U.S bloggers that are sharing the link won’t work for Canadian members which I find to be unfair to post when it only works for the country the blogger lives in. If I could change it I would but it is out of my control

  3. 5 stars
