Ahh, popcorn chicken. It’s a classic for good reason. The kids love it. The grownups love it. It’s quick to make and when you do, you will be showered with more praise and adoration than if you’d slaved for five hours over a Michelin-star inspired degustation menu.
It’s unfair to all the Michelin starred chefs of the world, but it’s true. Your kids will like your popcorn chicken better.
These golden little nuggets of goodness are made with a panko crumb for extra crunch, and served with home-made oven-baked potato and rosemary wedges.
We had ours with a side of veggies… but these would also be nice with a garlic aoli dipping sauce, or a creamy rough-cut homemade coleslaw.
Alright, I know your mouth is watering already, so let’s get to the recipe, shall we?
I hope you enjoy making this easy classic and get showered with appropriate love and adulation from your family. Make sure you pin it for when you need it!
