We made this popcorn chicken for my kids and they loved it. I've got some picky eaters, so this win was huge for us.

My kids love this popcorn chicken, including my toddler. Panko breadcrumbs are light and crispy without having to be fried, which makes it a great choice for baking in the oven. This chicken had great flavor too, well done.

Good flavor, moist chicken, crunchy texture. I also added seasoned salt, it was really delicious. Kids also loved it.

Crunchy and delicious! I love the panko breadcrumbs. I had to leave these in the oven a little longer to get the golden color on the outside, but didn't want to leave it in the oven too long because I didn't want them to dry out. I think 15-17 minutes was perfect.

The olive oil dredge worked just ok for me. I think I would have had better luck if I used an egg wash. My favorite part of this recipe, though, was the panko bread crumbs. Extra crispy and crunchy just like I like it.
