Copycat Recipe: KFC Popcorn Chicken

March 4, 2015

Popcorn chicken is easily one of the most irresistible meals on the planet.  Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) made this finger food a hit and now you can make a copycat version at home.  Bite sized chicken tender pieces are breaded and deep fried until golden brown.  Once you have nailed this recipe, you can use the same technique to make popcorn shrimp.  However, the cooking time will dramatically decrease since seafood cooks in seconds.  Serve your popcorn chicken in fun container (like a popcorn box) with a variety of dipping sauces including ranch, barbecue, and honey mustard.
