Walmart’s Popcorn Chicken is Deliciousness in a Cup

You know what’s really good? Walmart’s Popcorn Chicken in their deli area. There I said it!

I know how sinful it is even to suggest that Walmart might have something you should enjoy. Yet, it does exist.

My wife Marcela likes to drop into a Walmart Neighborhood Market for certain items she can’t find anywhere else. She knows I’m all about trying comfort food regardless, in this case, of it coming out of the Walmart deli.

I was initially taken aback when she dropped that little cup of popcorn chicken bites. I didn’t know that Walmart made ready-to-eat food, much less something that falls right into my wheelhouse.

What’s the Popcorn Chicken like?

If I were a betting man, my money would be all in on these being a snack for kids. Some of us still behave like children, hence my excitement at their existence.

When I removed the lid, the popcorn chicken was still crispy. But if it’s not, I have been known to drop it in the air fryer to re-crisp it. The breading is good but not too heavy, and there’s the right amount of chicken (rib meat) per piece.

For those of you who dip all of your food in sauce, they work well with Chick-fil-A sauce. I’d also suggest them with the Chosen Foods Chicken Sauce—just in case you don’t like the latter.

The Walmart deli popcorn chicken isn’t available all day. You must hit them up between 11 AM and 4 PM; otherwise, you might have to make something for yourself at home. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it might not be terrific.

Walmart’s Decription

If you’re not sold on eating Walmart Popcorn Chicken, you must try the Real Good Lightly Breaded Chicken Nuggets. Real Good has a few more products, and I think they’re all great.

You Know What’s Really Good?

For many years, during the early years of this site, I wrote a segment entitled “You know what’s really good?” It was a great way to tell everyone about an individual dish that was a particular stand out.

That series was something quick you could check out, a one-and-done. The first one was written before social media and hashtags.

After five years, I retired it, but as this blog has already passed its 15th anniversary, I might bring it back! We’ll see how it goes, and let’s hope for a proper welcome home.

  1. It has been years since I was able to hit up a Wal-Mart that had these, our local one had fryer issues or something. I love them, so uniform, so delicious, so much meat to breading ratio. They are good even by themselves with no sauce, but dipping totally adds to it. I also love that they are not too crunchy and even if they have lost the crunch, they are still good, at least to me.
