Parmesan Sesame Chicken Strips (and Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce)

┬áMy kids are addicted to chicken nuggets. Thankfully they love Homemade Chicken Nuggets, but my husband and I get sick of eating them so often. I was playing with some different recipes of a more “grown-up” version of chicken nuggets and came up with these. My husband and I loved them, the kids loved them . . . it was a win-win situation! The grown-ups dipped these strips in a homemade honey mustard sauce (which I included the recipe below . . . it was delicious!), but the kids still preferred ketchup.

  1. I made these for my parents and I usually don't comment on some of these sites, but I had to this time because it was soooo good! Such an easy recipe to follow and made just enough for all of us. This is a must try, especially if you have kids. :)
  2. I've made this recipe at least 10 times and my family absolutely love it! I've added some extra spices and you may need to cook it slightly longer than the directions say. My husband and two young boys bug me for it all the time! My husband doesn't even like mayo but he loves this! I've even used different types of crackers, even down to saltines and it's still great! Thank you so much for this recipe! It's a staple around our house! :)
