Recipe Roundup: Chicken Poppers

Cornmeal chicken
Tasty chicken served up healthy and home made.
I wanted to share a recent recipe we've tried. It turned out so well we've made it twice back-to-back weeks. It's a recipe from WeightWatchers, so it's a good healthy option. For the full recipe, see the WeightWatchers site. I'm highlighting it here, for your consideration.


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup uncooked cornmeal
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Place egg substitute in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, combine bread crumbs, cornmeal, garlic salt, salt, paprika and pepper.

Dip chicken in egg then mixture. Turn and coat. Place chicken on baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, flip and bake until cooked, about 5 minutes more.


I love this recipe. It works well to make popcorn chicken, or if you want to do as we did this past time, chicken strips. The strips took a little longer to cook, but still quick to cook. I think the corn meal gives is a unique flavor over other breading mixes. You can premix up the breading as well and keep it ready to go for a quick meal. On the plan, it makes 4 servings at 6 points.

The recipe comes with a dip to make as well, and you get 6 poppers and 2 tablespoons of dip. I personally feel they serve really well with Kraft Fat Free Ranch Dressing (1 pt; 1 tbsp).

They even reheat well. Today I had one on top of my salad and it was quite tasty.
