There are some foods that I know I can order from pretty much any restaurant and I will be happy with what I receive. Chicken strips if one of those meals. Although chicken strips, nuggets, and fingers are all shaped different, they are basically the same thing.
Another thing that is always the same for me? It’s all about the sauce in which I dip my chicken! Plain old ketchup is fine, but I definitely love ranch and fry sauce, or “comeback sauce.” Fry sauce is essentially just mayo and ketchup mixed together, but this sauce has a few spices which make it that much more tantalizing. Its called comeback sauce for a reason- you can’t help but keep coming back for more!
The chicken fingers are baked and not fried, so they are a much healthier option to feed your family. My kids gobbled them right up! I prefer to make them into “fingers” so I have less dredging to do, but they can just as easily be made into nuggets, although you will probably need to adjust your cooking time.
