Happy 4th of July everyone! (Although it’s not quite July 4th yet… But in order to ensure you have time to make this dip, I can’t just post this on July 4th because then it would be too late to bring this awesome 7-layer dip to the party…) So yes. I know. This dip is really predictable. You’re probably thinking, Wow, so patriotic. She must be very ‘Merican. Well, no. I’m not very ‘Merican, but I do think that it’s great to be a little festive once and awhile. Personally, I think this dip is very cute, and it’s so easy to make! It’s sure to impress, and who doesn’t love a good 7-layer dip?
I love fried chicken tenders. Last time I made chicken tenders, I went big and bold with my Chocolate Fried Chicken. This time, the fried chicken is normal, but the sauce it’s served with is out of this world fantastical! It is spicy and sweet, a jazzed up mango chutney with such an interesting flavor profile. The orange juice adds extra acidity to the store bought mango chutney, the soy sauce adds salt, the jerk seasoning adds spice and depth of flavor, the gochujang adds a spicy, funky flavor, and the lime adds acidity and brightness. This sauce is so amazing that you’ll be glad it makes more than you can dip your chicken tenders in. I mean, it truly is perfect for any application.
