Faux Fast-Food

These mini chicken bites taste even better than what you might find at the drive-thru. The always useful Chex crumbs provide a golden, crispy coating without having to resort to frying. Finishing the chicken bites with a coating of hot sauce creates the perfect sticky and spicy glaze.
