10 ounces sweet potato flour

Recipe Directions for Popcorn Chicken

  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the chicken, in a dish or bowl. Mix well.

  2. Cut Chicken into bite size pieces.

  3. Combine the mixture and the chicken together.

  4. Marinade overnight. (this can keep in the fridge for a few days).

  5. TO Fry: Heat oil to 390 degrees (anywhere from 375-390 should be fine).

  6. Thoroughly, coat the chicken with Potato Starch.

  7. Deep fry in small batches until medium golden brown. (about 1.5 mins ).

  8. Toss with Fresh Basil. You could also add the fresh basil into the oil, with the chicken, for the last 3 secs of frying, but the basil will lose some of its flavor. Be careful of the hot oil splattering when you add in basil.

  9. Finally, you can sprinkle some extra pepper, salt, and spice onto the chicken if you'd like.
