I was walking through the grocery store last weekend and they had this huge freezer with a special on popcorn chicken. I was a little intrigued. It would be a very quick and easy dinner for during the week. And I almost picked up a bag. The key word there is almost. I ended up deciding against it because I thought “you know what? I bet I can make that at home really easily.” And as it turns out, it was pretty darn easy to make.
When I told Ryan I was making popcorn chicken for dinner. The first thing he said was “what the heck is popcorn chicken?” Really you could call these chicken nuggets too if you want. It is simply chicken breasts cut into little bite-size pieces, dredged in seasoned flour and fried until golden. Since boneless, skinless chicken breasts are kind of expensive, this is a great way to make them go a long way. Not to mention they are delicious. Take it from Ryan who is not huge fan of fried food (gasp!) who said, as he scarfed down about 20 pieces, that they were really good, light and not too heavy like other fried nuggets. Give ‘em a shot. Let me know what you think.
