Yeah, we should make paleo popcorn chicken!
 
So… we DID!

  1. Hi Ladies, The popcorn chicken sounds great! But I have a funny question for you. What is Chicken mince? Is it just minced up chicken in small, little pieces, or something else? Thanks. Keep up the good work with all your recipes, I appreciate them.

  3. Why why why does mine not go anywhere near as golden as yours? Used tapioca as we can’t find cassava here but still not golden or crunchy what am I doing wrong?

  8. I need to make smaller balls… I made mine too big and I think that’s why they didn’t come out as crunchy
