Great way to use up chicken/turkey leftovers. Small pieces of chicken covered and fried in the frying pan. Much healthier than the pre-prepared popcorn chicken as you know exactly what goes in to it. Serve as a meal or in a small dish for party nibbles.
I have used chicken, turkey, pheasant and partridge and not one complaint!! Instead of using thyme, I have tried mixed herbs, and another time cumin (for an Indian style). Let me know how you have adapted this so I can try.
Depending on the amount of leftovers you have, you can easily double or triple the seasoning as needed.
Roast chicken Sunday, cold Monday, freezing outside Tuesday and still a good bit of breast and wing left. What to make for a working son, out in the cold all day? This answered my quest. Hot and spicy, comfortingly fried and crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, these nuggets were well received. No trouble to make, spices etc. in my spice cupboard (I used smoked paprika), mashed potatoes, carrots and cauliflour, chicken gravy from carcass popcorn chicken is a real hit. - 06 Feb 2018
