Anything fried is naughty though oh so tasty. Fried food shouldn’t be on the menu what with our current ice cream diet. I got a new ice cream maker and have been churning every other day but that’s another post.
Still, I saw this recipe on the Pioneer Woman’s website and just had to make it. Homemade Chicken strips we made them pretty much the same as the recipe except for the fact we used thighs, added onion to the buttermilk and used Zatarain spice instead of Lawry’s. Since I’m afraid of frying Honey was nice enough to do it and as usual did a great job.
The fun part was making honey mustard sauce. I actually never attempted to do this till yesterday. Honey and I had a lot of fun with it. I’ll put approximate amounts in case you’d like to try this at home but we actually did a little of this and that.
Honey Mustard Dip
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 or 3 tb Dijon
1/4 cup honey
1 heaping tb of fresh grated ginger
Something hot, tobasco, habanero sauce, hot pepper flakes, chili powder…
Mix everything together adjusting to you and your families tastes. I used the green dijon, the one with herbs, use more of less depending on how much you like this kind of mustard.
The green gave the sauce a beautiful color. Finish with a squeeze or two of fresh lime and as much heat as you want, in any form you like best. Oh and remember if you make this ahead, everything tastes spicier a day later, so what is mild one day is hot the next.
If you decide to try this recipe let me know how you like it, here, Honey and Cuz ate so much of it that they skipped the salad.
