Popcorn Chicken:

Popcorn Chicken:

Ah!   Now this is DIFFERENT

You MUST certainly read the whole recipe before you embark on this journey……


I received this rather unusual recipe by email from a friend who is not known for her prowess in the kitchen, so I was more than a little surprised when it arrived.       A different roast chicken recipe with amazing results:       Thank you, Janet.  I have reproduced it just as you sent it to me.

(You should know at this point that I have not yet actually tested this recipe;…..I really must try it out when can I summon up the courage.…..)

Prep:           10 mins.

Cooking:      For duration in the oven, see method.

Course:        Main

Serves:         2-4   (If they are good at cricket or baseball)

Rating:         2:  Easy (Well, it must be easy if this friend says it is………..!)

A chicken recipe that uses popcorn?        This is what she sent to me:

When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out.

Give this a try.


  • 1 chicken of whatever size you wish, to feed 4
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup Popcorn (unpopped)
  • 1 cup stuffing
  • Seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
  • Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt and pepper.
  • Fill cavity with stuffing mixed with the popcorn.
  • Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. Close the door.  (This is starting to sound suspicious…..)
  • Listen for the popping sounds.
  • When the chicken’s arse blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room and lands on the table, it’s done and ready to eat.
  • Serve with pride!

And you thought I couldn’t cook ……..!


Hmmmmm…. Perhaps I was wrong to include this recipe?
