A few weeks ago I really felt like some popcorn chicken so I looked up a recipe and it only had tapioca starch and I thought that sounded a bit boring so I decided to make my own recipe up! 🤩
I tested this recipe every week for a few weeks (to my family’s delight 😍) and thought that it was good enough to put on my blog! 🤤
So yesterday I made it for dinner and took pics of me making it so I could put it here! 🍿🐔
Let’s get into it!!!!!!!!! 🤤🤤🤤
(I would recommend that you have a second person helping you make this, I had my mum, she helped cook them so that they all wouldn’t burn)
Time: about 45 mins prep and 30 mins cooking 🍽
Makes: enough for 5 people (about 10-12 each)
1 cup almond flour
1 cup tapioca starch
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp chicken bone broth powder (optional if you don’t have it )
2 tsp dried parsley
Around 1 kg free-range chicken breast
Ghee for frying
1. Measure the all chicken coating ingredients into medium sized mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
2. Chop up the chicken into bite sized pieces.
3. Get 2 baking trays and line them with baking paper.
4. Whisk the eggs in a different bowl and add the chopped up chicken. Mix the eggs and chicken together (this is much eaiser then dipping them individually).
5. Put about half of the chicken coating in a different bowl.
6. Lay some pieces of chicken in the larger bowl, then sprinkle the other bowl’s coating on top and then just toss it to get the coating to stick.
7. Place the pieces of coated chicken on to the baking paper lined trays and repeat step 6 until all the chicken has been used up.
8. Put about enough ghee to cover the bottom of the pans in 4 pans (it makes it way faster to have more pans) and heat on medium-high heat the ghee until it is melted and hot.
9. Place chicken in the pan(s) (careful not to over crowd) and once they are nice and golden-brown and crispy on one side, flip them over to cook on the other side.
10. UPDATE: When you think they are done ( I cut one in half to make sure) place the popcorn chickens on a paper towel lined plate (this helps to keep ’em nice and crispy) and then cook the rest, cleaning the pans and replacing the ghee in between batches to prevent the old bits of coating burning.
11. Once all the popcorn chickens are cooked, serve them up! (maybe with a salad or something)
Thanks so much for reading this post guys!! 😁
I hope you looooooove this delish recipe! 🍿🐔
GUYS I CAN’T BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY 15 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS 2021!!! 🎄
Today’s boxing day and it’s pretty boring compared to Christmas, so I decided to make it not boring!!! 😃
I was making slime using my kit I got of my aunty (if your reading this, thx!!) and thought that it would be a good idea to do a post about me making slime!! 😁
Let’s get started! (my notes are in bold 😊)
So this is the slime kit!! It looks sooo cool!!! 😆
I’m gonna show you how to make it, reading off the instructions and showing pics!
These are all the things it comes with! The only thing that’s not included in the kit is water and something to protect your surface! 🤗
The first thing you’ll do before you start is put down a few pieces of paper were your gonna work so paint doesn’t go everywhere and you don’t make a huge mess.🤨🙄 Next, put your bowl on da paper.
1. (me copying from the instructions) Measure 30 ml of Clear Glue using the supplied measuring cup, and pour it into a bowl (i used the one they supplied). Scrape down the walls of the cup to get as much of the Glue out as possible. (i used the popsicle sticksto help me do this 😉)
2. Measure 45 ml of water (room temperature). Pour it in the same bowl as the glue. (i had to make 2 trips to the sink and fill it to 20 ml pour it in then go back and fill it to 25 ml to make 45ml 👍)
3. Add 2 spoonfuls of Black Chalkboard Paint to the bowl with glue and water, using the supplied spoon. (be careful! i didn’t know how runny the paint was! 😉 im glad i had the paper there….)
4. Stir the mixture of Glue, water and colorant (they mean da paint) with the Slime Stick until fully blended. (my hand is blurry in the pic! hehe 😋)
5. Measure 7.5 ml of Slime Activator Solution (that was super hard to measure out, since there is only 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 ml. i just measured outa little over 5 ml ) and slowly pour into the same bowl while while stirring slowly with the Slime Stick. Always use the Slime Sticks to stir. Do not stir with your hands. You will see mixture get thicker. Continue stirring until all the solution is absorbed. NOTE:Be careful when using Slime Activator, avoid contact with your eyes.
6. After all the of the solution is absorbed, remove the slime with you hands. It is crucial that you knead slime with to achieve desired consistency. (my slime was very stiff and when i kept kneading it got harder.😓) Stretch and pull the slime until it becomes less sticky and more cohesive (i’m sad to say but my slime wasn’t very stretchy 😥, but it was fun to play with!!! 🙂)
7. Using the supplied Paintbrush and Chalk Paints, decorate your Slime! (this was so much fun! 😆)
Stretch your Slime and transform your creations! Simply, knead your Slime to erase. (this was fun, but when i kneaded my slime to erase the paint it turned all weird 😔)
(it turned all stringy but luckily all i had to do was knead it for a while and it went back to normal😊) Note: Over time the Chalk Paints may decrease the black color (that did happen to me when i added all the colours 🎨) of your Slime. Simply add a spoonful of black paint back into your Slime and knead.
Always wash hands thoroughly after making and handling slime.
To store this slime, what I did was grab the little containers and put the slime and put the lid on. 😊 Unfortunately, the containers aren’t that airtight so I may have to put it in a different container.
