Popcorn Chicken is a crunchy and delicious chicken. Most chicken lovers must not have missed tasting this yummy chicken. If you want you can soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk for about 45 minutes to 5 hours. For any chicken recipe, soaking in buttermilk makes the chicken juicy and tender. However, soaking the chicken in buttermilk is just an optional step. Adding breadcrumbs to the chicken makes it crispy outside. This chicken looks crispy outside and it will be soft inside.

Popcorn Chicken can be served as an appetizer. This recipe will be better than KFC’s popcorn chicken if you use fresh meat and fresh oil for frying. For a healthy version of this recipe, use unbleached flours and multigrain breadcrumbs or instead of flour you can also use coarsely powdered cornflakes.
