Chicken popcorn and corn fritters

Delicious and tasty supper tonight made from things just in the fridge and store cupboard: spicy chicken popcorn and corn fritters. I can imagine the popcorn being great as TV snacks too.

Chicken popcorn:
2 chicken thighs, diced
3dsp plain flour
1tsp Cayenne pepper
1tsp Paprika
1tsp Chilli powder
1tsp Dried oregano
Worcestershire sauce
Corn fritters:
Small can of corn, drained
Plain flour
1 egg

1. Put the chicken pieces in a bowl and cover with milk. Add approx. 1dsp Worcestershire sauce.
Leave to tenderise.
2. Mix the flour, salt and seasonings together in a large bowl.
3. Drain the chicken and then toss in the flour.
4. Fry quickly at a high temperature.
5. Mix the milk, egg and flour to make a thick batter. Add in the corn. Season.
6. Fry dessert-spoons of the mixture until brown.

NOTE: Self-raising flour or bicarbonate of soda could be added to make the corn fritters fluffier.
NOTE: This would be good served with a small herb salad and some sort of tomato salsa/dipping sauce.
