CopyCat KFC Chicken Popcorn

My son is famous for going to KFC and asking for the Potato Crisper Burger and Chicken Popcorn. There's no logic to his preference where I am concerned. Why not eat a chicken burger when you go to KFC. Unfortunately there is no reasoning with him. As any parent will tell you, I'm just happy he's eating something that he likes when we go out.

So for a while now, he's been asking me to do what I always do with our favourite foods...make it at home. He was serious enough about it to show me YouTube videos of copycat KFC chicken popcorn recipes. Yup, he did that. That's when I decided to go for it. What's the worst that could happen, right?


500gm boneless chicken cut into small pieces
1 egg
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vinegar
1 packet of red chilly flakes (the leftover sachet from pizza delivery)
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp cornflour

For coating mix these ingredients together
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup homemade breadcrumbs
1 and 1/2 tsp red chilly flakes
salt to taste

Oil to fry


1. Mix chicken with all the ingredients and keep aside to marinade for 15 minutes.
2. Coat the chicken with the coating mixture.
3. Heat oil and add the chicken pieces one at a time.
4. Fry till golden brown on a medium flame.

It came out moist and juicy. Although our pieces were more nugget sized than popcorn sized. Pus they were not as spicy as the original KFC popcorn. Eventually we came to this video and I think I'm going to try it next.

Here's the ingredient list with this video
1 chicken breast 1 cup flour 2 tbls salt 3 tbls onion powder 1 tbls icing sugar 2 tbls pepper 1 cup panko breadcrumbs 2 tsp milk 2 egg whites vegetable oil for frying
