Finger licking appetizer with Asian seasonings: Asian style chicken poppers…

I’ve had chicken poppers as an appetizer at a few restaurants and the flavor I like the most is with Asian seasonings. The other day, I tried making chicken poppers in my kitchen and I used soy sauce as the base for the sauce. In fact, you could add any kind of sauce to coat the fried chicken poppers. Barbecue sauce, seasoned tomato sauce, buffalo sauce etc etc. You have so many options to make this dish delicious.
