  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 tsp. Knorr® Reduced Sodium Chicken flavor Bouillon

  1. Toss chicken with Knorr® Reduced Sodium Chicken flavor Bouillon. Melt 1 tablespoon Country Crock® Spread in large deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, in batches, stirring frequently, until almost cooked through, about 4 minutes.
