Picky eaters annoy me and when it happens to be your 4 year old who refuses to eat a wonderful meal prepared by yours truly, then I’m damn well pissed off! (Aaaaand breathe) Every night, I stress about what to make for dinner and if “that kid” will even eat it. Now this guy LOVES popcorn chicken. He can eat it all day everyday from pretty much any spot that makes said dish. So “light bulb” I decided to make my own version of it and he happily approves (thank God!)
I must say, popcorn chicken is very easy to make but at my house, I need to make more than humanly possible since thieves come by stealing the ones I’ve already made (jerks). Popcorn chicken pretty much goes with anything like rice, potatoes and did I mention rice? (Eh I’m Filipino)
So without further or do, here’s my popcorn chicken that is totes kid approved…
Cut and cube chicken breast
Heat oil in a pot or fryer.
Combine garlic salt, chicken bouillon, white pepper and cornstarch in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, scramble the eggs.
First dip chicken into egg batter (dip only a handful of chicken at a time).
Drop chicken into the cornstarch mix and thoroughly coat the chicken.
Fry only a handful of chicken at a time until light golden brown and crispy (chicken should float to the surface when ready).
Place cooked chicken onto paper towels to absorb the oil.
Call everyone to dinner and ENJOY!
Please note: you can always make this dish to your liking whether it be the seasoning or meat (cuz pork is awesome too).
