³ Description

Okay, so I know popcorn chicken is named that way not because it's made with popcorn but because it's in bite-sized little pieces like popcorn! . Buuuuuut these little popcorn chicken are ACTUALLY made with popcorn! I used Trader Joe's no guilt air popped popcorn. So good. . This meal is for 2 people. Or for your dinner and lunch the next day!

² Ingredients

  •  1 medium Egg
  •  3 oz Egg White
  •  1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  •  1 tbsp Black Pepper
  •  1 serving (serving = 1 oz) Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  •  3 serving (serving = 4 oz) Tyson Foods Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  •  1 tsp Sea Salt
  •  1.5 serving (serving = 2 1/2 cups) Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Air-Popped Popcorn
   

q Directions

#Recipe - Popcorn Chicken 🐣
1. In a blender or food processor, pulse 4 cups air popped popcorn, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp black pepper, 1 tsp sea salt (or whatever seasonings you prefer!).

2. In a bowl, whisk 1 whole egg + 3 egg whites (or if you don't like eggs like my crazy roomate, let 2 tbsp flaxseed meal and 2 tbsp of water sit for a few minutes to use as the "egg" mix) and a dash of hot sauce.

3. Cut up 3 large chicken breast into tiny pieces, dip them in the egg mixture and then roll around in the popcorn mix.

4. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and cook your popcorn chicken at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes and then broil for 10!

5. Find some good dipping sauces! I obviously went with Frank's🔥. I know, I'm sooo predictable! .
