We use to eat these wonderful BBQ Chicken pieces (we called them chunks) from the Wal-Mart Deli. Well we can’t have those anymore, they are fried and drenched in BBQ sauce. So I decided the one night with our Walden Farms BBQ Sauce to make my own version… a healthy version.
We have made this meal a couple times now and love it each time, even my kids try and steal some of it (they usually have something else because this would not please all 4 of them) You can make it as spicy as you want too! I use egg whites as a coating, I don’t really know why I just thought it would be a nice addition for the sauce to cling to and give it a coating.
1 lbs skinless chicken breasts
4 tbls BBQ Sauce (I use 2 different kinds of Walden Farms)
1 tsp of Franks Hot Sauce – Wing style is what we used (or more if you like it spicy)
1/4 cup egg whites (or 2 egg whites)
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper
Directions - Cut your chicken into bite size pieces, see the picture above to see what I consider bite size, and place into a bowl. Pour your egg whites over the chicken, add a little salt and pepper, about a tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. While that is sitting get your pan nice and warm, about on medium heat. Pour 2-3 tsp of olive oil in the pan (or spray it if you want with olive oil) once it’s warm pour your chicken mixture into the pan. The first few minutes you want to stir it for a bit. Then let it sit to cook stirring every few minutes.
Now prepare your BBQ sauce, in a bowl pour in the BBQ sauce you want to use, the hot sauce and water. Stir. Once the chicken is all cooked and no longer looking pink, about 8-12 min depending on how small your pieces are, dump in the BBQ sauce mixture. It should bubble quite a bit (see picture above). Stir it so all the chicken gets coated and then just let it simmer a bit. The sauce will thicken and coat the chicken nicely. Once most of the sauce is gone, about 4-5 min (may want to turn your burner down just a bit) it’s done!
