Crispy Bacon & Maple Syrup Popcorn Chicken Bites with Maple
Portlebay Popcorn asked me to create a recipe using their Devon-popped popcorn and I
was more than happy to give it a go! I’m a real savoury cook at heart – and I wanted to
challenge myself to use popcorn in a slightly different way – so here’s my take on Popcorn Chicken… made with real Popcorn!
2 tbsp crème fraîche
250g chicken breast
1-2 tsp herb/spice of choice (I used cajun)
50g Portlebay Crispy Bacon & Maple Syrup Popcorn
+ sea salt / pepper for seasoning
+ vegetable oil for frying
3 tbsp crème fraîche
1/2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1-2 tsp maple syrup
This recipe makes between 30-40 popcorn chicken bites (depending on how big
‘bite-size’ is to you!)
