Baked Popcorn Chicken Dressed In Honey BBQ Sauce

With this recipe, chicken dish is back to the recipe junction of CRB Tech Reviews after a long time. An easy, sticky, crunchy, saucy chicken poppers that are coated and baked and not oil fried.

The honey BBQ sauce is but more than these 3 ingredients: you’re favourite BBQ sauce, honey, and a little ketchup. It’s warmed together on the stove, and then poured over the baked chicken. Give it a toss, a taste test, and that’s your favourite snack. This also works as an easy dinner option served with sweet potato fries. It’s simply fantastic.

Prepare the popcorn chicken through step 4. Keep it in a refrigerator for 1 day before following with step 5. You could also freeze the baked popcorn chicken before tossing in the honey BBQ sauce. Bake the frozen popcorn chicken in an oven at 177°C ; for 15-20 minutes or unless warm enough.

You can also leave the popcorn chicken simple. Only you need to add a little more seasoning (pepper, salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder) to the cornflake mixture and skip the part of honey BBQ sauce.
