Sweet-and-Sour Popcorn Chicken
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
My family loves this!!!! It elevates chicken nuggets from ho hum to WOW! A time saving and tasty recipe.
My grandkids loved it! They told me that I did a good job considering it was my first time ever making it. The granddaughter asked me how did I learn to cook so good!
Oh myyyyy! So so good! A breaze to cook. Easy, fast and delicious. I double the sauce, put so brocoli and two peppers as well. I sub the pineapple juice for orange as I only had frozen pineapple on hand but wow, talk about a way to make kids eat their veggies! This recipe is going to become a staple in my house! Thanks a lot!
I have made this several times. I like to bake the popcorn chicken (not nuggets!) rather than microwave them. This keeps them crispier. Also I add the chicken at the very last minute. For leftovers the chicken does get softer again but that's just the nature of keeping them mixed in the sauce. If you want to keep chicken crispy keep it separated and re-toast or bake for a few minutes again to warm up. I also tend to use 1 green and 1 red pepper for color and a larger onion for extra flavor. Serve with rice or noodles for a very satisfying meal!
This recipe was very good. The chicken nuggets weren't really good. I had baked them first, then added to the sauce, but they were mushy. The next time I make this, I will probably just use chicken breast. I'm sure it will be even tastier! Thanks for the recipe!
I have been making this since it first appeared in the magazine a few years back. I do cook the chicken in the oven instead of the microwave as we like our chicken a tad crunchy. I also add mushrooms, as per daughter's request.
Delicious! I made this exactly as written and served it with the Fried Rice and Egg Drop Soup from the same reader.
I love this recipe, it tastes just like take out but I know what ingredients are going into the meal. I do prefer using cooked cubed chicken as opposed to the breaded popcorn chicken. I need to make this again! It's great!!
I made these for a group of friends last night who were just hanging out and they devoured them. I definitely prepped before I started cooking though and I put the chicken in the oven not the microwave to give them a crispier texture. Absolutely delicious!
I love this recipe. The sauce is wonderful!! The only thing about this recipe to be aware of is to prep everything before you start to cook. I'm a prep as I go cook and that was a little difficult with this recipe.
