We eat chicken nuggets pretty regularly in our house. And not just because they're a kid friendly meal, but because they can help put together a quick, easy meal for the entire family. I also love to use them at play dates for kiddos and mommas to munch on alike. We really love the Tyson Panko chicken nuggets because they're made of all white meat chicken, so I was so glad when I found them at our local Sam's Club.
BUT, chicken nuggets can certainly come across as bland and boring, especially to adults, so I like to whip up a quick home made dip recipe to go alongside all of the usuals, like ketchup. This southwest dipping sauce is a family favorite of ours because it's spicy but not too much for kids to handle. I also love it because it takes only a few minutes to make and I can create it with items I already have in my fridge and pantry.
Here's what you'll need for our homemade Southwest dipping sauce:
- 1 cup of plain Greek Yogurt (you can use Mayonnaise, but we prefer Greek Yogurt)
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 1 teaspoon of honey mustard
- 1/3 cup roasted red pepper (you can find this in a jar near things like pickles or jalapenos)
- 4 teaspoons of Southwest seasoning (we use the salt free, Mrs. Dash version)
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
Dump all of your dipping sauce ingredients into your food processor or blender and blend until smooth. I like to completely "liquify" the items, but you could leave it a little chunkier if you like it that way.
If your dip seems too thin after blending, know that it will thicken up if you refrigerate it for a little while. Refrigerating it isn't a necessity, but I think it tastes a little better when cold, and the dip serves a little better once it thickens.
You can serve this dip with lots of different appetizers alongside your Tyson Panko chicken nuggets. Some favorite appetizers and sides of ours? French fries, sweet potato fries, and celery. I also love to spread a little bit of this dip across a tortilla, chop up a few chicken nuggets and some lettuce, and roll it all together for a lighter meal that you can quickly eat on the go.
Do you have any favorite dip recipes or a favorite way to fancy up chicken nuggets?
