When we say popcorn… you say chicken…
Heck to the freaking yeah! We’ve been talking about this paleo popcorn chicken for so long. Because really, who doesn’t want bite sized pieces of crispy chicken in their belly? Yeah. We thought so. It’s totally #getinmabelly goodness.

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