Oven-Fried Chicken Strips With Sriracha Dipping Sauce

This family favorite involves a kicky dipping sauce made with sriracha, a tangy hot sauce often used in Thai and Vietnamese restaurants. Find it in the Asian food section of large grocery stores. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, use the substitute described in the Best Broccoli Salad Ever recipe, available in the app.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

Chicken strips

½ cup low-fat buttermilk

1 cup panko bread crumbs

½ tsp sea salt

½ cup finely chopped walnuts

1½ lbs boneless chicken breast, cut into strips

Dipping sauce

3 tbsp light mayonnaise

1 tsp rice vinegar

1 tsp lime juice

2 tsp sriracha sauce

1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.

2. Pour buttermilk in a shallow bowl. In a second shallow bowl, combine panko, salt, and walnuts.

3. Place chicken strips in buttermilk and flip to coat both sides, then dredge chicken in panko mixture. Arrange chicken strips on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 6–7 minutes on each side until golden brown. Cool strips and then refrigerate.

4. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, rice vinegar, lime juice, sriracha sauce, and soy sauce.

5. Serve chicken strips with dipping sauce.
