This is one of those accidental recipes that I created when I needed a last minute appetizer. I had some leftover Thai Grilled Chicken and Peanut Sauce in my fridge, and VOILA this healthy, high-protein recipe was born.
These tasty chicken bites are easy and can be made ahead. You can serve them hot, cold, or at room temperature. If you want to avoid the high calorie appetizers that are often shared at parties, this is a great option. These chicken bites taste so yummy, that no one will think of them as diet food. They're just good and happen to be good for you.

Here's the simple procedure for making
Thai Grilled Chicken Bites with Peanut Sauce
Step 1: Marinate and grill the chicken. Here's the recipe:
Step 2: Cool and cut chicken breasts into 1/2 to 1 inch cubes. I cut each chicken breast into 18 bites, but that can vary depending on their size.
Step 3. Buy peanut sauce (found in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores), or make your own. It's easy to make and so much better than what you can buy at the store. Here's my recipe:
Step 4. Put a toothpick in each chicken piece and arrange them on a platter along with a bowl of the peanut sauce. The peanut sauce can be thinned by adding some water or coconut milk, if you prefer a thinner consistency.
Dip and enjoy! This is such a tasty combination of flavors. Plus, there's a protein boost in each bite.
Make it a Yummy day!
