Cheesy Chicken Popcorn

Cheesy Chicken Popcorn

I wanted to cut down on deep fried this ramadan, but it's almost impossible when you have fasting kids at home. They don't want to get served with non fried or simply have the main meal for iftar. So for keeping them excited all along Ramadan I try to include at least one fried item for the sake of kids. (My young siblings and my little girl)

We are already halfway into Ramadan, I feel so numb and miserable as it's Day 15 of Ramadan, which means the month of good deeds are slowly coming to an end. May Allah keep us all steadfast on His Deen and help us to continue to do all the good deeds that we have done this Holy month and may He accept it from us.

These cheesy Chicken popcorns are so easy to make, with almost all basic ingredients. Boneless Chicken pieces are minced and spices are added to which corn and mozzarella chesses is added to make it extra delicious and cheesy. Then these are made into lemon sized balls and frozen for around 30 minutes. At the breading station, coat the balls in flour, then beaten egg and then into bread crumbs and fry them on medium low for 6-7 minutes until chicken cooks well.* Kids will truly love this! It was indeed a hit here too, alhamdulilah!

Let's get on to the recipe.

  • The outer covering will get cooked fast, but since the insides are raw boneless chicken mince, you need to make sure to fry them well on medium low heat in oil before draining them*
  • Make sure your boneless chicken is cleaned and dried usimg a kitchen towel.**
