One thing we’ll say about this popcorn chicken is that you won’t be able to stop popping it in your mouth! Dredged in spiced flour, buttermilk, and panko, then air fried to crispy perfection, it’s savory, tangy, crunchy, and great for sharing (if you can bear to!).

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. Add the panko to a third medium bowl.
  2. Season the chicken cubes with salt and pepper. Dip 1 piece of chicken at a time in the flour mixture, making sure to fully coat each piece and shaking off any excess. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture. Then, coat the chicken in the panko. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C). Spray the basket with nonstick spray.
  4. Working in batches, arrange the chicken in the basket, making sure the pieces are not touching. Cook until light golden, 5 minutes, then flip the chicken over and continue cooking until cooked through and golden brown, 5 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  5. Serve the popcorn chicken with ketchup.
  6. Enjoy!
