Baked Popcorn Chicken Bites
FRIENDS! Welcome to our spankin’ new website!
This site has been 6 months in the works, ya’ll. Now it’s live and we are thrilled. I have to give my husband & blogging partner all the praise for this! It has been a long journey of coding, more coding, and designing. But, he did it and I’m continually amazed by his tech abilities! They go far beyond my very very basic understanding of computers. 😉
We hope it is a site you can navigate and get easy access to all things YUM.
Now it’s time for us to discuss game day eats.
I really don’t care for football… Like, at all. But I’m all in for the food.
And all of my Superbowl food thoughts brought me to this recipe. Delicious popcorn chicken bites baked with tender chicken on the inside, and a crunchy crust of corn flakes and seasoning on the outside – heyyyooo. They are so yum, simple to make, and are the best paired with a side of honey mustard for dipping!

- 3 cups corn flakes
- 3 chicken breasts
- 1/2 tsp salt & pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400F and brush sheet pan with olive oil.
Cut chicken into cubes/smaller pieces and set aside. In a large bowl use your hands to crush corn flakes until crumbly. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and cayenne - mix ingredients together.
Whisk eggs and milk together in a shallow dish. Set up an assembly line with chicken, milk & eggs, and corn flake mixture. First: coat chicken with egg and milk mixture. Second: thoroughly coat chicken in corn flake mixture on both sides. Lay chicken on oiled sheet pan and repeat process until all of chicken is used up.
Bake chicken for 8 minutes on each side - total time for me was 16 minutes. Time can vary depending on size of chicken bites. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!
