SPICY DIPPING SAUCE FOR CHICKEN
BURNIN' BEAK SPICY DIPPING SAUCE FOR CHICKEN
We LOVE sauces! And since it's February, with love in the air, we're focusing on recipes to spice up our meals. The main pairing for this sauce is with chicken but you can use it with pork or beef or even a hearty, meaty fish like swordfish.
This sweet-and-slightly-spicy dipping sauce is so quick to put together. Place all the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor - whirl then simmer a bit - that's it! So easy and delicious!
The Golden Ghost Pepper Jelly would be great too because it would give the sauce a slightly citrus flavor.
A surprise ingredient, raisins, give this sauce a rich, roasted, earthy flavor which compliments the chicken, pork, beef or swordfish so nicely.
