Taiwanese-style Popcorn Chicken

It is very easy to make this Taiwanese-style Popcorn Chicken. It just needs less than an hour to do this including the marinating and frying. It is so tasty, kids nowadays love it and it can make a very convenient snack. I purposely made some yesterday for us to take to the park.
