Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, Baked Popcorn Chicken, served with your favorite dipping sauce!
I’m on an appetizer CRAZE lately! Did you catch the yummy Cheesy Bean Dip I shared last week? I’ve got a few more awesome appetizers to share with you all in the coming days as well. They will join the ranks of my many favorite Party Appetizers, perfect for superbowl Sunday!
These Baked Popcorn Chicken Bites are AWESOME! I really hate frying chicken–mostly because it’s terrible for you, but also because it’s a pain in the neck. This baked chicken has the same crispy coating that everyone loves from fried chicken, and they’re waayyyy easier!
The crisp coating on these baked popcorn chicken pieces is delicious, and the chicken stays nice and tender and juicy on the inside. Pair them with your favorite dipping sauce and just see how fast they get devoured! we prefer BBQ, Ranch and my favorite homemade chick-fil-a sauce for dunking.
