chicken popcorn recipe (KFC style popcorn chicken)

Chicken popcorn, a delicious boneless chicken fried piece which tastes as good as the KFC style. I have made this recipe which tastes very juicy and yummy with every bite. This KFC style chicken popcorn uses very few ingredients and is coated with bread crumbs and deep-fried in oil. I have used very few spices like paprika, white pepper, soya sauce, egg, marinated the chicken and then deep-fried.

Other chicken recipes on the blog are chicken sukka, palak chicken, chicken rezala, chicken liver fry etc…

Marinating always helps in tendering the chicken and then it also takes very little time to deep fry the chicken.

I have decided to share some of the KFC style chicken recipes which are quite popular in my homeland India and they are easy to make at home.

Side dish

This recipe tastes good with tomato ketchup than eating plain. This works as a great appetizer and can be eaten during a snack party, kitty party or while having evening fun with friends. I have also added a video procedure to help understand this procedure well.

There are many ways chicken can be fried and eaten and each method follows a different procedure though it uses very few ingredients to fry the chicken.

I would love to update many chicken fry recipes in various ways and something which are available in restaurants.

Below are the recipe details on how to make this crispy juicy kfc popcorn chicken with a video procedure.

Ingredients

Boneless chicken: I am using small boneless cubes which are neither too big nor too small. Do not use large pieces for this recipe and this one tastes good only with the boneless cut of the chicken breast.

Wash them well and drain the excess water out from the chicken to coat the pieces well with the spices.

Dry spices: Spices such as salt, red chilli powder or paprika powder, white pepper powder, ginger garlic paste form the spice base to marinate the chicken which infuses amazing flavours after deep-frying.

Egg: To make the chicken soft after frying and not hard this is an essential step. Add little and not let the chicken dominate the egg smell.

Soy sauce: Popcorn chicken is incomplete without this ingredient as this is a close replica of restaurant-style flavours and adding this gives real flavours of the store-bought chicken.

Corn starch and all-purpose flour: To get the texture that appears on the chicken with a coarse texture from the outside and the crunch from the inside bite is because of these ingredients. These are the main ingredients to the marinade along with the egg.

Breadcrumbs: I am using breadcrumbs to give the final coarse look to the chicken and also makes it crunchy from the outside but keeps it juicy from the inside. The coating is necessary to get the required taste.

Step by step procedure

Marinating

  • In a bowl, add the boneless chicken, salt, red chilli powder, white powder, corn starch, maida/all purpose flour.
adding spices to the chicken
  • Also, add ginger garlic paste, beaten egg, soy sauce, vinegar. Do not add egg in large quantity and just add a teaspoon or 2 teaspoons if it dominates with the egg smell.
adding egg
  • Mix all these ingredients thoroughly and marinate the chicken for about 20 minutes. Marination lets the flavors go deep into the chicken and taste well after frying.

Coating of the chicken

  • Take each marinated chicken piece, coat each piece well with bread crumbs. Use white breadcrumbs which are easily available in stores or dry the white part of the bread and make a powder of it and store it airtight and use when required for coating purposes.
