It’s game time season and we’re cooking up some crispy chicken bites. Are you tired of the same buffalo taste and the same game time recipe ? We are too! We recently fell in love with glazed wings so it was only right to make some glazed crispy chicken bites for game time too!  So if your’e into a little kick with a little sweetness and all the juicy tenderness of chicken breast, you’re in for a treat!

Thanks to one of my favorite snapchatters and food bloggers Resha from CarnalDish.com who shared a glazed wing recipe I’ve been hooked on glazed chicken! I was inspired to try over for freshly fried crispy bites too! I’ve made a few changes to the glaze but I’d encourage you to try both recipes! I promise you’ll be hooked on glazed chicken everything in no time!

Ingredients for Sweet + Spicy Crispy Chicken Bites

For the ingredients I headed over to my local Walmart and picked up some special must have items for my Sweet + Spicy Crispy Chicken Bites! I highly recommend Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour because theres no need to add salt or anything else. It gives your chicken a great taste! Find the flour in the baking aisle! Also Check out the spices for the new McCormick Gourmet Sriracha Seasoning!
