Now, these are one of those recipes that I can’t tell if kids or adults like them more. I like to change up from my usual routine of chicken wings when I don’t feel like deal with the bone. How lazy does that sound? But it’s completely true. No bone , no mess, no worries!
The thing I love so much about making bites is they are awesome as a make ahead and freeze really well so you can make a big batch and then even sauce and freeze them for later.
This recipe is super simple and easy. Try it out and let me know what you think!

In the meantime heat oil to 375.
