Ever since I saw the chicken popcorn from Taste of Pearl city, I wanted to give it a go. Mainly because this dish is hubby's favorite. Whenever we go to KFC, this is a must in our order list... He literally drools over it.
I didn't know that they could be made at home until I saw this recipe. And it was yummy, crispy in the out and juicy in the middle.
I did the frying version and made it a bit spicy too...
Boneless chicken- 1/4 kg
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
