OK, HERE WE GO!!!
- Dice & place your chicken in a large metal mixing bowl! (P.S. You can totally keep your chicken breasts whole if you prefer!);
Combine all the gorgeous ingredients in a large metal mixing bowl & MIX THE F OUT OF ‘EM TO COMBINE!
- Pour the marinade ALL OVER YOUR CHICKEN! Toss to combine & make sure all your cubes are evenly coated in the marinade!
- Heat a skillet over MEDIUM-HIGH heat, spray it with some coconut oil (or olive or avocado oil) cooking spray & once heated, add your chicken & whatever marinade was not absorbed by it to the skillet!
Cook your cubes on each side for 4-5 minutes or until browned & no longer pink! You’ll know that it’s ready once most of the marinade is absorbed!
