Fried Chicken Popcorn

What a delighful Christmas we had! Food, chatting, gifts, cookies.. Everything was great! Unfortunately I didn't have the time to take pictures of the things we made for the mealtime, so I'll have to post a recipe I've made a couple of weeks ago. My son's friend was going to have lunch in our place, so I defrosted some small frozen pieces of chicken breast to make some fried chicken. But later I found out I had no breadcrumbs in the house. So I decided to blend some crackers to make it even crispier. And it really worked out great!

Fried Chicken Popcorn


400g chicken breast, in small pieces
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
3 tbsp flour
100g crackers, blended
Oil, enough to fry


Season the chicken pieces with the garlic and the salt. Put in three different bowls, the flour, the eggs and the crackers. Heat the oil (about 1 1/2 inch of a deep frying pan). Roll the chicken pieces on the flour, eggs and crackers, respectively. Fry them in boiling oil until crispy and brown. I served them with some honey mustard sauce, in which I use the same quantity of each ingredient.
PS: I called them Chicken Popcorns just because they're so small and delicious we cannot stop eating them! It's practical and great, just like popcorn!
