I’m always making variations on chicken nuggets and chicken strips. I can always count on my family absolutely devouring them. This is one of the variations that is my 6 year old son’s favorite. Not only does he love the chicken, but he loves the dipping sauce. This pretty much blows me away because no matter what kind of chicken nugget or strip I make, his preferred sauce is honey mustard. Not with this one. He loves the curry dipping sauce, and so do I! This is a great dish that you can throw together at the last minute, yet it still has great flavor to it. Isn’t that the beauty of curry? Lots of flavor without a ton of work.
Baked Curry Chicken Strips
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds chicken tenders trimmed of fat
- 1 1/2 cups plain bread crumbs
- 3 teaspoons yellow curry powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt can substitute sour cream
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, curry powder, and salt.
- Working one at a time, dip chicken tenders into melted butter and let any excess drip off back into the bowl. Place the chicken tender into the bread crumb mixture to coat on all sides. Place on prepared baking sheet, leaving a small amount of space between each strip.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make dipping sauce by stirring together greek yogurt, lemon juice, 1 tsp curry powder, and 1/4 tsp salt in a small mixing bowl.
- Serve chicken strips hot with cold dipping sauce.
Hello, I’m Rachel and I really love food! I started cooking at age 11 when I put a half cup of baking soda into a batch of cookies instead of a half teaspoon. Because…what’s the worst that could happen, right? The cookies were a spectacular fail and it got me interested in cooking.
This is a keeper recipe! The curried chicken strips are delicious and super easy to make. The dipping sauce was good, too, but a little too tart for our liking. I added a spoonful of honey to it, and it was perfect with the chicken. It was also good with just a little ketchup added to the sauce (to go along with oven-baked fries). I think the sauce also would be wonderful with the addition of just a little mango chutney. Next time!
