Honey Stout Glazed Chicken Bites
Ohweeeeeeee these have a kick to them, wakes your mouth right up!
These little bites are made with beer, not just any beer Guinness baby!
Seriously even the coloring on them is awesome, you want your food to be somewhat attractive that makes it more eatable. Using your senses right?!
I've been meaning to make these for awhile now and the time was right.
So I started off the day before marinating the little chicken bites. Then following up the next day with cooking them.
You do not necessarily have to use that process, depending on the time you have available to cook, really. At least marinate them for an hour.
But, the longer you let the meat soak the more flavor you're gonna get. And let me tell you mine were not short on flavor! There is a definite zing to them.
So lets get started!
What you will need is:
2 Large Chicken Breast, cubed (trim off all the fat)
1/2 Cup of Stout beer, Like I said this Irish girl used Guinness
1/2 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon mustard
1 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
2 Cloves garlic microplaned, or finely chopped
1 Teaspoon fresh ginger, also microplaned
1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
Cilantro for garnishing (approximately 2 Tablespoons)
How to make them:
Start of by cutting your chicken into bite size pieces.
Mix your marinade, add to a bowl all your ingredients excluding the cilantro.
Whisk that well.
Add the chicken to your marinade.
Decide now how long you will be marinating your meat.
Like I said earlier I had mine in the fridge overnight. But you can marinate for an hour if you're short on time.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees once you're ready to cook.
You may also grill these but being that they are bite size you might have more difficulty.
Lay your chicken bites on to a baking sheet.
You might want to use a disposable baking pan, I warn you its going to get pretty messy, but I did get my baking sheet clean.
Cover with tinfoil for the first 20 minutes and the last 10 minutes cook uncovered
Brush the chicken with the marinate every 8 minutes.
Cooking for 30 minutes
Garnish with cilantro
