Kid-Friendly Honeyed Popcorn Chicken with Rice Krispies | Anyonita Nibbles

Y'all remember a few weeks ago, I posted this Rice Krispies Fish Fingers recipe? For about three days after, I was grabbing my bright blue box of Rice Krispies nearly every time I cooked, trying to come up with different things to pair them with and get them out of the breakfast nook and onto the dinner table.

Please  vote for me!
On one such quest, I came up with this sweet and crunchy popcorn chicken recipe for Callum's dinner one night. Needless to say, he loved them! I served them with oven chips and peas for him with the obligatory squirt of ketchup for dunking. They're easy and tasty and quick to make, too!

Before we get to the recipe, would you mind clicking that badge and voting me for me to win a BiB award? I would really appreciate it! Cheers!

One honeyed popcorn chicken with uncooked Rice Krispies | Anyonita Nibbles
For the popcorn chicken1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup flour
1 cup gluten free Rice Krispies cereal 
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp honey
1 egg, beaten
2 Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper
sunflower oil for frying

All right, let's cook:
Prepare the batter and coating for the chicken by beating one egg with the honey in a small bowl.

In a slightly larger bowl, place the flour along with salt and pepper an parsley. Stir to combine.

On a plate, combine the Rice Krispies with the sesame seeds.

Cut the chicken into bite-sized chunks (or why not try strips?) and get the oil heating on the stove.

Dredge each chunk through the flour, being sure to coat all sides.

Next,  dip into the eggy-honey mix before rolling it around in the Rice Krispies and sesame seeds. Set aside to rest on a clean plate. Continue until you've coated all the chicken pieces before shallow frying until golden and cooked through.

  1. My kids have asked about popcorn chicken I think your at home version sounds much healthier. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us on foodie friday.

    1. Hi Diane,
      Yes, these are healthier and just a little sweet! I had to stop myself from eating most of them!

  2. I love coated chicken, I make all my own too, have used rice crispies and cornflakes for the little one & panko for me, so delicious. Not used honey yet, must try!
    Congrats on your BiBs nomination

    1. Yes, using Cornflakes is such a good idea! Nice crunch! & I love Panko, although it's very messy! :) Thank you for the congratulatory message!
