Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways

Popcorn Chicken 3 Ways so everyone gets a choice! Buttermilk Ranch, Garlic Herb and Smoky Turmeric flavors in bite-sized versions served with dipping sauces.
This week Sunday Supper is welcoming the home team with a big thumbs up! Actually, we’re using all our fingers to serve our finger food recipes! 😉
Our Challenge…
September is creeping up on us, and you know what that means– Football Season! There is no better time of the year than Football Season for delicious party food. Wings, fries, sandwiches, chips and dip… when it comes to finger food, you’ve got a lot of firepower in your kitchen arsenal! Break out the napkins and let’s celebrate Football Season’s exciting parties with equally exciting finger food!

Football season here can be anything from my guy watching the game with a few friends or one good buddy to packing up the snacks and going to a potluck party. When we’re doing it up at home, I like to put out a variety of foods for snacking during the game.

Sneaking in a veggie tray or salad in a cup is not beyond my scope of snacks.
Of course wings are always a hit but can get a bit messy.
That doesn’t mean I need to rule out chicken. Chicken is so versatile and can lead to so many flavor combos. But I know everyone isn’t into buffalo or spicy flavors. So I thought I’d mix it up a bit.
Popcorn Chicken is a fun way to give everyone what they crave. Serve these delicious bites of chicken with some favorite sauces. Mix and match Ranch, Honey Mustard and Smoky Turmeric dipping sauces with your popcorn chicken for a wild flavor pop!

I’m adding fries on the side. Just for fun, serve your “popcorn” chicken in popcorn boxes!
