We all love popcorn chicken and today we are sharing easy recipe and you can make it at home.Homemade popcorn chicken allows you to control the ingredients and limit the amount of salt and fat. Most fast-food popcorn chicken also contains sugar, which you can cut out. Making popcorn chicken is not difficult.
Here is the things you will need.
- Baking sheet
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Bread crumbs
- Chicken breasts, boneless, skinless and cubed
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil.
Pour about 1 inch of milk into a pie plate. Skim milk is best if you’re watching calories and fat grams.
Crack an egg into the milk and whisk them together until the liquid is smooth and foamy. Egg substitute works well and offers you a lower-cholesterol dish. Egg whites will also work, though the breading may not stick as well.
Fill a pie plate with bread crumbs. crumbs are best for oven frying because they are larger and fluffier and tend to become crisper without being fried in oil.
Roll your cubed, raw chicken pieces around in the milk and egg until they are well-coated.
Put the soaked chicken cubes into the panko bread crumbs and roll them around until they are coated on all sides. Push them around gently with your fingers so that you don’t flatten the bread crumbs too much.
Place the breaded chicken cubes onto the oiled baking sheet and bake them for 10 minutes.
Turn the chicken pieces carefully with tongs and cook them for another 10 minutes, or until they are crisp and just turning golden.
