1) KFC Popcorn Chicken Recipe

This recipe is also one of the closely guarded secret of KFC and a perfect recipe to make for children. It’s quite fun to prepare this item and to eat.
Like the other offerings this recipe also uses the secret herb combination of KFC. But there is nothing to worry you can get it prepared all by yourself and for information you may go through the article KFC Secret Recipe before you start creating the Popcorn Chicken. However, here we are trying to create the famous KFC Popcorn Chicken. To prepare popcorn chicken you will require following ingredients:

100 grams of boneless and skinless chicken breast
2 teaspoons of all-purpose flour mixed with secret herb combination
½ teaspoon of powdered sugar
½ teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
¼ teaspoon of salt plus
1/8 teaspoon of onion powder
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons of milk (fat-free)
3/4 cup of Panko bread crumbs
And olive oil spray for greasing
For sprinkling you will require freshly ground pepper and salt

First step is to preheat the oven to 475°F, next lightly spray a nonstick baking sheet with olive oil spray and set it aside.

Now place the chicken piece on a cutting board and cover it with a sheet of waxed paper. Now using the smooth side of a meat hammer, pound the chicken piece to a uniform thickness of about quarter of an inch. Now uncover the piece of the chicken and cut it into 24 to 25 even sized pieces.

Take the flour, sugar, ½ teaspoon pepper, ¼ teaspoon salt, and the onion powder and mix it well place the mixture in a bowl now add the chicken pieces and coat the chicken pieces well with the flour mixture and set it aside.

Now in a small bowl mix the egg whites and the milk. Beat the mixture with a fork until it becomes smooth. Next is take the full quantities of the bread crumbs and place it on a small sheet of waxed paper and keep it next to the egg-milk mixture.

Taking one at a time, dip the flour coated chicken pieces into the egg-milk mixture making sure to coat the chicken piece completely and allow the excess coating to drip off. Now dip the coated chicken piece into the bread crumb to coat it completely by turning it on both sides in the bread crumb. After you are done with all of the chicken pieces dip a second time into the egg-milk mixture and the bread crumbs. After you are through with the process place the chicken pieces on the nonstick baking sheet prepared earlier making sure that they’re not touching each other, now spray the chicken pieces with olive oil spray lightly and season lightly to taste with salt and black pepper.

Bake the chicken pieces for 5 minutes and flip the chicken pieces. Again bake for 5 to 7 minutes. KFC usually does not bakes the chicken pieces instead they pressure fry them. If you have the arrangement for the pressure frying then you may enjoy this recipe in much better way.
