Sweet and Sour Popcorn Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken 3

This is one of those super easy semi-homemade recipes. It’s extra easy because the cooking of the chicken part is done for you, thanks to the good folks at Perdue. But if you’re entertaining for March Madness, your friends certainly do not need to know that. Impress them all with this Asian-inspired, delicious appetizer that’ll make them think you’ve got some serious culinary chops. Eat these puppies with a fork, with a toothpick or even your hands, just be sure to serve some napkins on the side! They’re sweet, they’re sour and they’ll definitely have your watch party buddies asking for more!
