From the SIMPLE moms

With kids back at school and homework, soccer practice, and birthday parties in full swing, it’s not hard to see why so many families rely on microwave dinners during the week. Fischer & Wieser wants to inspire families to make a meal that they can prepare and eat together to celebrate National Chicken Month. Paired with chicken, Fischer & Wieser’s delicious gourmet sauces make a home-cooked meal that is packed with flavor and nutrition and takes about the same amount of time to prepare as the time it takes to watch one episode of your favorite sitcom.

Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® has garnered awards and accolades across the globe for more than a decade. A perfect blend of raspberries and chipotle peppers, this smokey, sweet and spicy sauce makes chicken extraordinary! As an added bonus this sauce is also naturally gluten-free.

Chicken Dippers using Fischer & Wieser’s The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®

These chicken dippers are quick-to-fix finger foods that can be enjoyed as a main dish with a side salad or vegetables or as an appetizer for all to enjoy.

Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

1 egg

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat and tendon, cut into 1″ nuggets

*1-1/2 cups peanut oil (or see baking instructions below, if you prefer to bake)

½ to ¾ cups The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®

Mix egg, soy sauce and cornstarch. Add chicken nuggets. Heat oil until hot enough to quickly brown a small drop of marinade (350-375°F). Stir-fry or deep-fry until crust is golden brown and chicken is done – about 4-6 minutes.

Dip in (remove “any of”) Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® or any of our dipping sauces.

*If you wish to bake these, omit peanut oil. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, or use parchment paper.

Place battered nuggets on sheet and bake in 350°F oven 7-8 minutes per side until nuggets are golden brown and juice runs clear when nugget is pierced with fork. Serves 4-6.

Fischer & Wieser Whole Lemon & Fig Marmalade is a versatile ingredient that packs a big punch with the zesty tang of lemon and the beautiful sweetness of figs. This flavor combination is so light and delicate that it’s perfect for chicken.
