KFC Style Chicken Popcorn | Easy Homemade Chicken Popcorn

 My son is a die hard lover of chicken popcorn,when ever we got to any fried chicken retail outlets the first item he would order is chicken popcorn.I already have a chicken popcorn recipe in my space ,the difference between this and that is the exterior coating and some ingredients.To make the popcorn chicken look similar too that available in the outlets i coated it with oats & corn flakes.
Do try this method which looked exactly like the one available there.
