How To Make Popcorn Chicken

Popcorn chicken is an American dish consisting of tiny, bite-sized pieces of chicken that have been breaded or battered and deep-fried.

The name of the dish refers to the small pieces of chicken that are reminiscent of popcorn after they have been fried.

 

ADDITIONAL RECIPE NOTES

Don’t over-marinate the chicken. 30 minutes is all you need, but you can marinate for up to 4 hours. Don’t marinate for longer than 4 hours or the chicken fibers will break down too much.

Drain the excess marinade and dry the chicken with a paper towel before dredging in the flour mixture.

Oil should be heated to 325 degrees F for frying chicken.
