WHISKY ON THE POPS CHICKEN TENDERS RECIPE STEPS:
STEP #1 – Gather all of your ingredients - corn starch, salt, paprika, black pepper, lightly minced popcorn and chicken
STEP #2 – Add your chicken to a large mixing bowl and add in your corn starch, salt, paprika and black pepper
STEP #3 – Add your eggs to the meat mixture ensuring all sides of the chicken cutlets are covered thoroughly in eggs
STEP #4 – Roll and coat your chicken cutlets onto the lightly minced Whisky On The Pops popcorn ensuring all sides are covered generously
STEP #5 – Place your tenders on your air fryer basket or baking tray. Set the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and preheat for 5 minutes before putting your tenders in. Cook in medium sized batches for about 10-15 minutes. Flip once after 5-6 minutes to ensure even browning on both sides of tenders.
NOTE: (Do not skip flipping your tenders, if not flipped it could result in the popcorn burning on one side)
SWEET AND SMOKEY WHISKY DRIZZLE STEPS:
STEP #6 - Gather all of your ingredients – brown sugar, Jack Daniel’s, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, liquid smoke, sriracha hot sauce, apple cider vinegar and your chopped garlic
STEP #7 - Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl - your sauce is ready! If you'd like non-alcoholic version (we understand!), feel free to remove the whisky from the sauce, making this a perfect meal for the entire family. Our popcorn has virtually no alcohol content as it's cooked off in the cooking process.
