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. When I was growing up and my family would go to KFC, I would always get the Popcorn chicken. I liked that they were small, bite-sized pieces that could be dipped in some kind of sauce. I have an obsession with sauces. What can I say? I love to dip this chicken in Copycat Chick-fil-a Sauce or Garlic Parmesan Dipping Sauce! Mmmm….
This Oven Fried Popcorn Chicken recipe is amazing because it is “oven fried”. It comes together quickly and doesn’t make a big mess, because you bake it in the oven instead of frying it in oil. It is also very kid-friendly. My kids love to help me when I make this recipe!
