This recipe by Smokin’ & Grillin’ wit AB looks so much better than the ones from KFC. AB kills it in the kitchen every time and does not disappoint when it comes to presentation and quality. He simplifies it and makes recipes easy and simple for his viewers, which I love. I’m always looking forward to making his recipes, and I know this KFC popcorn chicken copycat recipe will be a lot of people’s favorite. As I was watching this video, I knew some of my best guy friends would love this because it looks super crispy and well seasoned. I’ve always struggled in making fried chicken, and couldn’t master the breading. But I believe and hopefully master this recipe down. I love being able to make copycats at home because of the ingredients that I am putting in versus buying it at restaurants. Anything homemade is also healthier too. I know these would be gone so fast because popcorn chicken is so easy to devour and pop in your mouth.
First, trim the excess fat off your chicken breast. Cut the chicken into bite sizes and put them in your buttermilk mix. Make sure to mix the chicken in the buttermilk and let it sit in the refrigerator while you get the flour mix ready.
Next, strain the chicken breast that is marinated in the buttermilk and coat the chicken with the flour mix. You want to shake them dry and put them on the cooling rack. Have your pot of vegetable oil ready at 350F and fry them.
Finally, cook them until they’re golden brown and continue the process until they’re finished. This KFC popcorn chicken copycat recipe by Smokin’ & Grillin’ wit AB is perfect and I am hungry while watching this. In my opinion, they look better than the original.
