Crispy chicken bites with dip
A huge hit for the kids, these little crispy bites with zesty dipping sauce will disappear fast.

25g salted popcorn

85g stale bread

1 tsp smoked paprika

50g plain flour

1 large egg

270g chicken fillets, cut into long thin strips

Oil, for frying

For the dip

150ml soured cream

Zest 1 lime and juice of ½

Handful coriander, chopped

Put the popcorn, bread and paprika in a food processor and blend until finely combined.

Tip into a wide, shallow bowl.  In another bowl, whisk the egg in and mix the flour with some salt and pepper in a third bowl.

Dip the chicken strips first into the seasoned flour, then into the egg mixture, and finally into the popcorn breadcrumbs. Press the crumbs to coat and stick.

Chill for 30 minutes.

Mix together the ingredients for the dip in a small bowl.

Heat enough oil to just cover the surface of a large frying pan.

Once hot, cook the chicken pieces for 2-3 minutes on each side in batches until golden and cooked through.

Drain on kitchen paper.

Serve warm with the dip on the side.
