Popcorn Chicken

I found this recipe while looking at the blog http://www.broeats.com and wanted to try to make it for my roommates. I won’t claim that it is good for you at all, but it does taste excellent. The recipe is very simple and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, although I tweaked it a little bit from the original that was posted. You may want make rice or some sort of potatoes to go with the chicken. Here’s what you need for the chicken:

  • 2 lbs chicken tenderloins (should be buy-able in bulk freezer bags)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons seasoned salt (I use Lawry’s)
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • Vegetable oil

The first thing you’re going to do is to cut your chicken up into small bite size chunks and place them in a large mixing bowl. Add the two tablespoons of honey and 3 tb of seasoned salt. Mix them with your hands and try to ignore the sounds it makes. Once that’s done, mix the milk and the 2 eggs together in one bowl. Put the 2 cups of flour, leftover seasoned salt (1 tb), and cayenne pepper to taste (I usually put about a teaspoon) into a large freezer bag and mix. Dunk your chicken into the milk/egg mixture, and then place it into the flour bag. Once all the chicken is in the bag, seal it and shake to make sure that all the chicken is coated in flour. Leave the bag to sit while you heat up 1/2 inch of oil to medium/medium high on the stove. You can tell when the oil is ready by tossing in a pinch of flour. If the flour sizzles and fizzes, you know the oil is hot enough. When the oil is hot, remove the chicken pieces from the bag and add them to the oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the chicken is brown on both sides. Let it cool in a paper towel lined bowl or serving dish and serve.
