Ever heard of chicken pops? This crunchy golden appetizing snack would be a hit pretty soon on the family or party menu…you can take that from me and say dobby told you so :). For this recipe, i seasoned the bite sized chicken pieces with ingredients you could easily find around the house but you can customize yours with whatever seasonings you prefer. The yaji in this gives it that yummy “Nigerianized” flavor we all love. To give the coating a crispier texture, you could use 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of semolina powder instead of 2 cups of flour. I discovered that semolina gives it that extra crunchy feel in the mouth.
