I’ve always liked the flavor of Kentucky Fried Chicken, but I’m not really a big fan of eating chicken on the bone.  I have a weird thing about food textures.  Growing up,when we would go to KFC, I always got the Popcorn chicken.  I liked that they were small, bite-sized pieces and you could dip them in some kind of sauce.  Oven Fried KFC Popcorn Chicken is great because it is “oven fried”.  It is quick and doesn’t make a big mess, because no oil is being used. It is also very kid-friendly.  The kids could even help you make it, if you’re that brave.  Make sure you pair this chicken with some Garlic Parmesan Dipping Sauce or Copycat Chick-fil-a Sauce.  It is so yummy, you won’t be sorry.

Making Oven Fried KFC Popcorn Chicken couldn’t be easier.  Cut your chicken into bite-size pieces and place in a zip top bag with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
