Lemon Chicken Fingers and Sauce

This was a fun recipe to make. When I started with the lemon sauce, the amazing smell really came to life.  When I was frying the chicken, I actually caused a tiny fire to start, so please always be very careful when frying with oil. Never let your oil get too hot it smokes and watch if it should spill or splatter over the pan onto the hot cooking surface, which will cause a flame. If that does happen, pour soda over it.

Back to the super delicious recipe…… My first bite, I was like “Oh my gosh, these are amazing!”  The lemon in the buttermilk mixture gave the chicken a little kick of lemon flavor, and the chicken is great this way.  But the best part is the lemon sauce that you drizzle over your chicken, or you can dip it in the sauce.  Mouth watering.  This recipe is a must try for everyone!  Kids and adults will love these, I guarantee it.

  1. I would only say you need to thaw the chicken if you stated in the ingredients that it was frozen in the first place. In your ingredients list, say to either get the frozen chicken breasts, or just use fresh chicken breast meat that you slice into finger sized pieces for cooking.
