Welcome to Snapshot Cooking, the home of Kitchn's easiest recipes. These mini recipes are so simple you can practically cook from the before-and-after snapshot itself.

Ready for a new chicken dinner winner? Meet the ridiculously easy homemade chicken bite: a saucy little nugget of tender roasted chicken.

You don't even have to cut up the chicken: Ask the guys behind the counter at your grocery store to chop your chicken into one-inch chunks, then try one of these five (two-ingredient!) flavor ideas. Eat them hot off the pan, top a grain bowl with them, roll them into a wrap, or stuff them into pita.

5 Snapshot Recipes for Chicken Bites

  • The chicken: Each recipe calls for 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces, which will serve 4 to 6 people. (Or just you with leftovers.)
  • Like we mentioned above, you can always ask your grocery store meat counter to do the cutting and trimming for you. If you want to use chicken you already have, we recommend freezing the chicken for an hour to make cutting easier and less messy.
