chicken breasts, cut into bite-sie
finely chopped parsley
ground black pepper
Wash the chicken breasts, then cut them into bite sie prices.
Pat the chicken dry using a paper towel.
Sprinkle flour, salt, black pepper and basil over the chicken (make sure all the chicken pieces are evenly coated).
Heat the oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Once the butter melted, add the chicken pieces in a single layer (if your skillet isn't big enough, you may need to cook the chicken in batches).
Cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip on the other side and cook for more 2 minutes.
Add the garlic and parsley, cook for one more minute, then turn off the heat and serve.
Do not overcrowd the skillet with the chicken pieces. The overcrowded garlic butter chicken bites start releasing water which results in steamed chicken rather than crispy bites.
The secret to super tender and crispy garlic butter chicken bites is to ensure that the pan is hot before adding the chicken bites to the pan.
Make sure the garlic isn't overcooked! Garlic doesn't need to be cooked for significant periods. Burned garlic has a harsh flavor that will detract from the overall flavor of your meal!
