Popcorn Chicken

One of my family's favorite recipes is popcorn chicken.  It's easy to make and so good!  I used to just fry it on the stove in a frying pan but we recently purchased a deep fryer so I made it to try out our new "toy."  It's going to take some practice to get it perfect but it will make it so much easier!

Our new toy
Popcorn Chicken

Chicken Breast
Eggs, beaten

1.  Cut the chicken into bit size pieces.  Mix flour & seasoning.  I use Cavender's Greek Seasoning.  Sorry I don't have measurements but the amount I use depends on how much chicken I'm cooking.  Don't be skimpy with the seasoning...you want there to be enough that you can taste it!

The ingredients

2.  Dredge the chicken in the egg.  Place chicken in the flour and cover completely.
3.  Fry until golden brown and the internal temp of the chicken is 165.

4.  Enjoy!

The chicken is yummy hot or cold.  I love adding leftover popcorn chicken to salad.  Not that there are usually leftovers!

What's your favorite way to eat chicken?

  1. Yummy! I'm a little different than you though. I LOVE chicken strips. I could eat strips any day of the week (with ranch dressing)!

  2. So good! I love the fact that you, like me, aren't bound to using exact measurements; let those spices fly!

    My compliments on picking a great deep fryer; I have several Cuisinart appliances and have been more than satisfied with their performance.

    Enjoy the day!


  3. I like my chicken grilled, over pasta, with a creamy pesto sauce. But fried chicken is quite tasty too.

  4. How can anyone go wrong with popcorn chicken...Yummy! I need to make some soon =]

  5. Looks good! Do you happen to recall about how long you'd fry it on the stovetop for it to reach the desired temperature?

  6. That looks amazing! And woohoo for a new toy!

  7. Haha, I was going to say, "Leftovers?? Not in this house!" :)

    Those look amazingly delicious. Hm, my fave way to eat chicken? I like making chicken nuggets for my two boys. Cut chicken breasts into small pieces, dunk in egg, coat in bread crumbs, then cook in a skillet with a little oil (we don't have a deep fryer).

    Hubby and I don't eat meat often, but I do love roasting an entire chicken, especially the Foster Farms pre-seasoned ones.

  8. Um, YUM! And totally jealous of your deep frier.

  9. Okay, so now you have to share the sausage squares!! I've been making small packets (bread and velveeta) in little baggies and putting them in the freezer so we can have it for the 2 of us whenever we want!!

  10. I think its a simple dish yet its awesome and delicious.

  11. Thanks so much for sharing. This is so much better than out of a bag. I'll have another Tasty Tuesday link up again tomorrow; I hope you'll share a recipe again.

  12. Wow!! My mouth is watering this looks so good :) Thank you for sharing this recipe!!


  13. Hi! I just made popcorn chicken too! Sadly, I didn't look at your blog until AFTER I made them and will have to try that seasoning next time! I just seasoned with salt and pepper and don't think it was quite enough.
