Life can get pretty busy around here! With both me and my husband working full time jobs, school, homework, afterschool activities and scouts. Then I throw in the work I need to do with my crafts and blog and everyone is going a million miles an hour. My kids especially my teenager Carson is starving after school and he usually wants to hurry and grab a snack so he can get to hanging out with his friends. I always try to stock my freezer with items my kids can cook easily without supervision so I can get the things I am working on accomplished. I recenlty tried Tyson Chicken Fries. I knew right away this chicken snack would be perfect to have at home for Carson to quickly make for himself.
Along with the Chicken Fries I have some homemade Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce that the kids love to use for a dip. I love to make dipping sauces for chicken. We often will have ketchup mixed with mayo, ranch or a favorite of my husbands is BBQ sauce mixed with ranch. BBQ suace is used the most around here so I found a recipe I like that is quick and easy to make. My cousin Lori gave me this BBQ sauce recipe – hers does not include a Jalapeno but we add that because we like to make things a little spicy around here sometimes.
Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce
- 1/2 a Small Onion (diced)
- 1 Garlic Clove (pushed through a garlic press)
- 1 Tsp Butter
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 3 dashes Worchestershire Szue
- Jalapeno (diced) for less spice remove seeds
- 1/2 cup Ketchup
In a saute pan saute the onion, garlic clove and jalapeno in the butter until the onions are soft and tender. Add the ketchup, honey, worchestershire sauce and mix together. Cook over a medium/low heat for 3-5 minutes until everything is nicely combined. If you want a smooth sauce then once the sauce is cool you can blend everything together.
The Chicken Fries can be made in the oven (how I prefer them) or in the microwave (how the kids prefer them because it is quicker).
I asked Carson what he thought of them and he said they were really good – crunchy on the outside but still soft on the inside – just like a french fry. The rest of the family enjoyed them as well.
