Baked popcorn chicken is simple to prepare and healthier than deep-fried versions. Kids will love them too.
Preheat the oven to 200° C. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper.
In a bowl whisk together buttermilk, garlic powder, salt & pepper, cayenne and chives. Add chicken and leave to marinade for 10 minutes.
Working in batches, coat the chicken pieces in cornmeal flour until fully coated. Spread chicken in even layers on prepared baking sheets. Drizzle some oil all over the chicken.
Bake chicken until golden and cooked through for 25 minutes, flipping halfway.
Dipping sauce: In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.
