Bag of frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken purchased at Costco
Perdue Popcorn Chicken cooked

My boyfriend and I bought some of the frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken from Costco to have as a snack every now and then. The instructions on the bag state the preferred cooking method is using a conventional oven or toaster oven, but we just used the microwave instructions. The microwave instructions don't state how many pieces to microwave for 3 - 3.5 minutes, so we just tried microwaving 8 pieces.

Although the breading was thick, it didn't turn out very crispy. It was kind of doughy and a little too thick for me. The chicken underneath the breading was OK, but it was a little dry, and the overall taste of the chicken was a little peppery.

It was fine as a quick snack, but I don't know if I'd get these again.

REVIEW – Perdue: Popcorn Chicken from Costco (Frozen)

  • Darla

    I love these! I cook them in an Air-Fryer and they come out perfect! Cut them up and put them in a Chinese chicken salad! Love it!

  • Djk

    Have been buying these for years. I bake them inn the oven on a layer of crumpled aluminum foil sprayed with PAM. nice and crispy every time.

  • DC

    Not sure why you expected the chicken to be turn out crispy by microwaving them.

    • AY

      Exactly… food with breading never turns out crispy in the microwave, if you want it to be crispy, cook it in the oven or fry it.

    I bought these on sale at Costco for $8.99 and immediately went back to buy more. The only way to make these is to pan fry in oil, or a deep fryer if you have one! Sooooo good and crispy! It’s a shame the instructions only show microwave and oven methods.
