Thank you Laura! We will definitely be trying this recipe!

She-Mulk, it is the frozen breaded popcorn chicken that I used. It doesn’t give direction on the bag to deep fry it but that is how I cook it.

I went to buy popcorn chicken but could only find the frozen breaded popcorn chicken. Is that what I should use? I didn’t know if it was ok to have breaded or if that would change the flavor. Thanks for all of your recipes – we’ve loved them!
