Chicken fingers

Hello to one and all:
I'm making some chicken fingers as part of hors d'oeuvres servings...having 2 or 3 others. This is for a dinner party for 8 this coming Thurs. evening. Now my question is, what kind of sauces, or dips go with chicken fingers?....Thanks in advance for all your answers!...

Honey Mustard, BBQ, Ranch, Blue Cheese, White Gravy, and I had them somewhere once with what I think was bottled French Dressing.

Will you be serving salad/dressing? What esle are you serving? Rhetorical Questions, but something you may want to consider when selecting a sauce(s) for the appys!

Have Fun!!!!!!!

I like them with chutney, especially curried apple or plum.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

You might want to have just plain ketchup and mustard as well for the kiddies if there will be children attending.

I second the sweet and sour and sweet chili sauce! Very good flavor, and just different enough to make a good impression. Yum!

Chickens don't have fingers! Of course, not being mammals, they don't have breasts, either.

Here's some dipping sauces I serve with lumpia (egg rolls) and pot stickers that should work with breaded white chicken meat, if you like an Asian twist.


1 Tbs chili oil
1 tsp white vinegar
1 Tbs soy sauce
Mix together in bowl and serve

4 tbs Soy sauce
2 tbs Peanut butter
1 tbs Honey
2 tsp White vinegar
1/8 tsp Garlic powder
2 tsp Sesame oil
1/8 tsp hot sauce
1/8 tsp Pepper
Whisk all ingredients together in bowl until combined (this may take a while) and serve

2 cup soy sauce
2 cup sugar
1/2 cup rice wine
3/4 tsp minced garlic
Bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 5 minute. Add juice and zest of 1 lemon. Cool and serve.

1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup water
2 tbs sugar
salt to taste
1 tbs cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbs water
Combine all ingredients except corn starch mixture in pan and bring to boil. Add cornstarch mixture, return to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired thickness. Cool and serve.

dip the chicken fingers in a mixture of:
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp dijon
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper

mix together 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup panko chips for the breading

for a honey mustard dipping sauce:
1/4 cup mayo
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp dijon
2 tsp lemon juice

For appetizers these are great cut into bit size pieces
