  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water + 2 Tbsp cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour melted butter into a large baking sheet with sides, brush to coat the whole surface.
  • Using a fork, stir together flour, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk eggs. In a third bowl, place panko bread crumbs.
  • Coat chicken in flour, dip into eggs, then toss in the panko bread crumbs. Place chicken on buttered baking sheet. Repeat for all remaining chicken strips.

  • While chicken is cooking, add sauce ingredients (except water and cornstarch) to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir together water and cornstarch (making a slurry), whisking it into the sauce until it thickens. Reduce heat to low.
  • Once chicken is finished cooking, toss or dip chicken in the sauce... turning to coat thoroughly. Serve :)
