Air Fryer Chicken Bites

If chicken is one of your main household favorites then this juicy and tender Air Fryer Chicken Bites recipe is perfect for you! I love that I can cook these bites in just 12-minutes with very little prep and my family can chose their portion. Because they are bites, they go well serving them over rice and pastas or even in salads. I like to dip mine in tzatziki sauce, hummus, or a garlic yogurt sauce.
