Recipe Description
Popcorn chicken is a popular snack in many countries. What makes popcorn chicken so popular? Well, it might be because it can be prepared with a few simple ingredients, and tastes delicious! But what makes this dish stand out is its texture - crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. This texture comes from the cornflour coating that gives the fried crust its crunch. It is made from small pieces of deep-fried battered chicken that are coated with a light layer of corn and wheat flour and then cooked until the coating becomes crisp. The dish is often served with a variety of dipping sauces, including ketchup, barbecue sauce, honey mustard sauce or sweet chilli sauce.
