Poh’s Popcorn Chicken with Spicy Cooling Dipping Sauce

If you've never brined chicken before, let me tell you, it's a game changer. The seasoning penetrates all through the meat whilst keeping it beautifully tender and moist. Add fantastic crumb crunch with a no oil, no fuss cook in the air fryer and you have a guaranteed family winner. For the kids serve with ketchup instead of the Spicy cooling dipping sauce.

Poh's Popcorn Chicken with Spicy Cooling Dipping Sauce

Prep Time: 30 mins

Cooking Time: 14 mins


1kg chicken thighs or tenderloins, cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup sugar
700ml water
1 cup plain flour
3 eggs, lightly whisked
Spray oil

Dipping Sauce

1/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tsp lime juice or to taste
1 tsp fish sauce OR to taste
1 Tbs full sriracha chilli sauce
Handful of laksa leaf (Vietnamese mint), roughly torn OR roughly chopped coriander

Pohs Popcorn Chicken


To prepare the brining solution, mix the water, salt and sugar in a medium bowl until dissolved. Submerge chicken pieces in it, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 40 minutes and maximum of 1 hour. Drain immediately in a colander.

Pat chicken pieces down with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Place flour in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and toss until every piece is well coated with the flour. Transfer the dredged chicken to a colander and shake away any excess flour.

Place eggs in a medium bowl. Add 1/2 the dredged chicken pieces and coat completely with the egg. Fish them out allowing excess egg to fall away. Place panko crumbs in a dinner plate or small baking tray. Place egg coated chicken in a single layer on the crumbs and cover well.

To air fry, coat the chicken on 2 sides with spray oil then arrange on air fryer racks with a 1cm space between pieces. Air fry at 170°C for 7 minutes each side.

To make the dipping sauce, combine all dipping sauce ingredients and stir until combined. Fold through the laksa leaf and serve immediately.
