Healthy popcorn chicken!

26 Feb

IMG_8702Popcorn chicken is my favorite thing on the KFC menu.

I like the fact that they are small and bite size and so easy to eat with ANYTHING you want!

This, though is a healthy version of it, and i’m not lying if i say that personally i enjoyed it MORE than the original popcorn chicken.

INGREDIENTS:

Cut up chicken breasts in small bite size pieces

1 egg

Quaker oats

Get each chicken piece and dip it in the egg, then roll in the quaker oats in order to stick, spray some vegetable oil cooking spray onto a pan, and that. is. all.

Instead of using, breadcrumps this is a much healthier substitute, the oats are full of protein and nutrients that are good for you, and give you just the perfect crunch you want when you have popcorn chicken!

You could also add some honey, or pepper while cooking, or make a small healthy dip.

I made some tzatziki

(low fat greek yogurt, and cucumber)

    Oh, I love this idea! I don’t like fried chicken because of all the unhealthy oils but this sounds perfect, I can’t wait to try and change up my chicken menu for the week 🙂 thanks!
