  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and toss until they are evenly coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours for maximum flavor.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off any excess. Discard the remaining marinade.
  5. Add the chicken pieces to the skillet in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the chicken bites to a serving plate. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the chicken. Enjoy your delicious Lemon Garlic Chicken Bites!
