Everything Chicken Bites with Cream Cheese Yogurt Dip
These low carb Everything Chicken Bites with Cream Cheese Yogurt Dip use everything bagel seasoning for a quick and tasty weeknight meal!
- 1 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature (also labeled Neufchatel cheese)
- 1/3 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon skim milk
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
- salt and pepper, to taste
- garlic powder, to taste
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small bite-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning, (Trader Joe’s, Target’s Good & Gather, McCormick, and several other brands have a version)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
- 1 large egg white
In a small mixing bowl, stir together the cream cheese, yogurt, milk, and chives until smooth. Season to your preference with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Refrigerate until using.
Place the chicken pieces in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with the flour. Use a spoon or fork to stir/toss to coat. Add the well-beaten egg white to the floured chicken and stir to coat. Sprinkle in the Everything Bagel seasoning and stir to coat the chicken pieces.
Add the oil to a large sauté pan/walled skillet and bring over med-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken pieces and stir to break them up and coat them in the oil. Cook the chicken for 7-8 minutes, stirring every couple minutes (you don’t want to stir super frequently because the chicken needs time to brown and get a golden “crust” on each side). Once the chicken is cooked through and browned on the outside, remove from heat and serve with the dipping sauce from step one.
