Hubs loves the Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers at Chili’s restaurant. He gets them every time we go there, literally. Lately he’s been working 12 hour shifts, seven days a week so we haven’t been able to eat out much. So for a little treat in honor of his long work days, I set out on a mission to make them at home.
I found a few recipes for a copy of the honey chipotle sauce but every recipe called for frying your own chicken. I’m not into making a greasy mess in my kitchen so I thought of a quick and easy alternative.
The Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips in the freezer section of your local grocery store are really good. They’re breaded white meat chicken breasts strips that take only 20 minutes in the oven. So I made the sauce, cooked the chicken strips then tossed them to coat. They’re not 100% like the Chili’s version but they come dang close. Plus they’re simple, fast and yummy!
