Gluten-Free Oven Fried Cajun Popcorn Chicken Recipe Details



Mix the chicken with some buttermilk, a little salt, and freshly minced garlic. 


Then, make the crispy coating. In this recipe, I used gluten-free cornflakes. To make the crumbs, add the cornflakes to a food processor and pulse until they become the texture of fine bread crumbs. The cornflakes give the chicken that crispy southern fried chicken texture.


Then, add the seasoning. The flavourful cajun seasoning is the key! I also added cheddar cheese to the coating. This helps it stick to the chicken as the cheese melts. Once you roll the chicken pieces in the coating, they are ready to be baked.

It’s a very simple recipe. This is also an egg-free crispy chicken recipe.


The creamy feta sauce 

You simply can’t have popcorn chicken without a delicious creamy dipping sauce. I wanted to keep the  flavor of the sauce mild because the popcorn chicken was already spiced. The dipping sauce has only four ingredients: sour cream, garlic, olive oil, and feta cheese.
