Popcorn Chicken Salad Recipe
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- Set air-fryer to 400F (or 420F in the oven).
- Add plantain chips to a sealable bag, then crush the chips into crumbs for the chicken coating. Place the crumbs in a large bowl along with the other seasonings in the batter.
- Season chicken breast pieces.
- Then dip the chicken in the egg, then the plantain crumbs and then place in the air-fryer basket OR on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
- Before baking, lightly spray them with avocado oil or another high smoke point oil. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until the outside is golden brown and the center is cooked through. Note: with smaller pieces of chicken, the cooking time will decrease.
- After frying, add a pinch of sea salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy with your favorite condiment OR with a chopped salad! Use the avocado crema recipe as a dressing if you prefer! For the salad, place all your preferred ingredients on a cutting board or sheet, then use a large knife to continually chop everything together.
