Popcorn Chicken & Roasted Red Potatoes

This recipe is inspired by one I found at Heavenly Homemakers.  When I  made it for my girls, they argued over who would get to eat the last one and have begged me to make it again.  My husband Todd and I both enjoyed it, too. The Roasted Red Potatoes go perfectly with the chicken.  You can bake them at the same time, but potatoes bake a bit longer so put them in first!

Healthy Homemade Popcorn Chicken

3-4 Large Chicken Breasts (I use Smart Chicken brand)
3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp All-Purpose Grill Seasoning (like Misty's)

In a shallow dish (like a glass pie plate), mix flour and seasonings.  Cut Chicken into bite-sized pieces (use kitchen shears)  Toss chicken into seasoned flour mixture to coat well.

Cover 9x13 inch pan with foil (easy clean-up).  Smear a thick layer of butter on bottom of the pan.  Place coated chicken pieces in pan, spreading out to a single layer.

Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes, stir, then bake another 10 minutes.

Serve with your choice of dipping sauce (ketchup, ranch, honey, bbq, sweet and sour)

Roasted Red Potatoes
1 lb. Red Potatoes, Quartered
2-3 Tbls Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Herbs or seasoning

Place quartered potatoes in 11x7 inch pan in a single layer.  Drizzle with olive oil (enough to coat when tossed) Toss.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Toss.
Add fresh herbs (rosemary is great) or Lawry's seasoning or Grill Seasoning.  Toss.
Arrange back into a single layer and bake at 350 degrees, 35-45 minutes, until tender.

  1. This looks like something my kids would love. I'm curious....I've never heard of "sweat and sour". I'm just kidding--I know what you mean. It just sounds soooo appetizing the way you spelled it. Seriously, I am going to make this for my kids. Chicken is one of the only things I splurge on when it comes to no hormones, free range, no additives. I wish that I could afford organic milk. Maybe someday.
