Air Fried Popcorn Chicken

Air Fried Popcorn Chicken

Popcorn chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Made with a wonderful combination of spices, the taste is simply fantastic. It’s great with any sauce, but I find the a sauce is not absolutely necessary. The chicken truly stands on its own. This delightful popcorn chicken is great for snacks, movie nights, ball games, or parties. Believe me, your family and friends will love it.
