Chicken Poppers

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time40 mins
Servings: 4



  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp. mustard regular prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 8 chicken tenderloins or 6 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 3 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • Peanut oil or canola oil for frying I used canola


  • Add all the sauce ingredients to a small bowl, whisk well and refrigerate until ready for serving.
  • Cut up the chicken breasts into small chicken bite sizes.
  • Heat up oil in a large pot, over medium heat to 375 F degrees.
  • In a large ziploc bag add the flour, sugar, salt, paprika and pepper. Close the bag and shake it so that all ingredients are mixed well.
  • Add the chicken pieces to the ziploc bag, close it and shake it until each piece is fully coated in the flour mixture.
  • Remove the chicken pieces from the ziploc bag, shake all the excess flour from them and place them in a bowl, until ready for frying.
  • Fry the poppers, a few at a time so they don't get soggy. I divided mine in 3 batches. Fry them for 5 minutes, depending on the size of your pieces, the bigger they are the longer they require.
  • After frying, place them on a plate with paper towels to soak up the extra oil.
  • Serve hot with the mayo/mustard sauce or with hot sauce.
