With my kids home from school, finding them things to eat, that I can make quickly, while I am working, has become chllagning. One of their favorites of course is chicken tenders. While, I can order take out every day, this is so much easier and budget-friendly.
Since all kids like to dip (hopefully this is not my kids) I have been workign on making some homemade dipping sauces.
Here are some of my favorites, thus far:
Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce
Since my kids are picky eaters, aren’t most. I tried to replicate my take on the Chinese version of Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce, which became the perfect dipping sauce for my Buttermilk Chicken Tenders.
This is a simple sauce, with only a few ingredients, most of which I had on hand, one of my favorite things. I love being able to create something out of things I have on hand.
What Is Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce
If you have never had Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce, it is a combination of sweet and sour. Hence the inclusion of both Apricot Jam and Rice Vinegar.
Apricot Jam is the perfect base for any sauce since it’s naturally sweet and has a tangy-sweet, and sour taste. The addition of the rice vinegar adds a sweet and milk sauce. Rice vinegar is very popular in Chinese cuisine.
Today’s Recipe Ingredients:
