Spicy & Sweet: Chicken Tenders with Mango Curry Sauce

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.

I Can’t Even: Chinese Chicken and Brussels Sprouts Egg Rolls with Sweet Chile Pomegranate Sauce

Wow is pretty much the only word coming to mind right now. I mean these egg rolls are wow. Here’s some background on the situation: I love egg rolls. You probably do too. If you don’t, well we can’t be friends. But anyway… These egg rolls take the egg rolls your thinking of and elevate them to a whole new level. Like above ten. I mean, these Chinese Chicken and Brussels Sprouts Egg Rolls with Sweet Chile Pomegranate Sauce are at least an eleven. I can attempt to describe how good these are to you, but it would never do the actually thing justice. So, I’ll attempt, but it won’t nearly be as close as when you bit into one of these egg rolls dripping in sauce: The crispy exterior of the egg roll contains an explosion of sweet, salty, and spicy chicken cubes, bright and crunchy brussels sprouts and carrots, and umami rich mushrooms, all coated in a sweet and slightly spicy pomegranate sauce.
