Popcorn Chicken

Popcorn Chicken is a great all time favourite bite sized snack made with small pieces of chicken marinated in subtle Indian spices and deep fried until golden and crisp. This makes a wonderful snack or appetizer for kids and young ones. Coated nicely with an outer casing of corn flour and all- purpose flour, makes the chicken crisp and crunchy. There are many types of snacks that we can make with chicken such as Chicken cutlet, Tandoori Chicken, Southern Fried Chicken Strips, Chicken Shashlik, Chicken Lollipops, Chicken pakoda etc.

Popcorn chicken has an amazing texture that is crisp outside and tender inside. It is exceptionally flavourful and delectable to eat. It’s also great way to please picky kids to make them eat healthy food. Generally Popcorn chicken uses really small pieces of bite sized chicken pieces which helps in making the pieces crunchy and crisp. It’s fast to cook and easy to carry for picnics or pack in lunch boxes. Popcorn chicken is a magnificent snack consisting of chicken pieces using broiler chicken that are marinated with red chilli powder, black pepper, salt and lemon juice and then coated around flour batter and then either pan fried or deep fried.

Crisp, well seasoned pieces are the hallmark of a well made and delicious popcorn chicken. Deep frying the chicken pieces requires a deep fryer or a kadai where the chicken pieces can be completely submerged in hot fat. The pieces are floured or battered using a batter of flour and seasoning mixed together. The fat is heated in the deep fryer to the desired temperature. The pieces are added to the fat and a constant temperature is maintained throughout the cooking process. There are different seasonings and spices used to augment the flavour of the Popcorn Chicken throughout the world. Chicken is a versatile source of protein and is low in fat and easy to prepare.

Probably the popularly known dish throughout the world is the chicken soup, particularly used for colds. According to traditional Chinese medicine, chicken in moderate amounts is a good food for building energy as well as supporting the digestive function. Chicken is a very good source of protein, niacin, selenium, and vitamin B6. It is also a good source of pantothenic acid and phosphorous. Chicken is easily available in most grocery stores and most of us love eating chicken due to its delicious taste and smooth meat texture. Its white meat is really tender and has no other replacement.

The benefits of eating chicken has been proven years back and everybody loves to munch this again and again because they have found it safe for every day consumption. Chicken also has selenium, an element that helps promote thyroid hormone metabolism which eventually controls the metabolic pathways. This also has anti-oxidant to defend the immunity of the body.

For preparing this appetizing and delectable Popcorn Chicken, firstly wash chicken and cut into small pieces. Put them in a bowl and season with salt, red chilli powder, black pepper powder, lemon juice and mix well. Marinate in the fridge for few hours.

In a dish, take ½ cup corn flour, ½ all-purpose flour (maida), and combine them together. Add little salt and red chilli powder, mix and keep aside. Whisk 1 or 2 eggs in a bowl and keep aside. In another tray, add all-purpose flour and put in the chicken pieces and coat well with the maida flour (this helps in absorbing the excess moisture).

Take the coated chicken pieces and drop them in the egg mixture and coat them well. Take pieces of chicken and coat them with the spiced flours, remove and shift them into a colander and toss them to remove the excess flour. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat and when the oil gets hot, add the chicken pieces and deep fry till they get nice and crispy.

The chicken pieces should get slight golden in colour. Remove, drain oil. In a bowl, add some chaat masala, parmesan cheese (optional), marjoram spice, and mix the ingredients well. Sprinkle some of the masala powder over the chicken, toss and serve.

I brine my chicken for 8 hrs in salt water then drain and add sour cream and let it sit overnight. If you don't have sour cream or buttermilk just add a T. of white vinegar to a cup of milk. BTW this sounds delicious and you are adorable, makes m
