Months ago, I worked to create recipes for the Saucy Mama Fabulous With Five recipe contest. The contest and all that followed were great fun, including being at the Fancy Food Show and making my Pan Asian Grilled Scallops with Suzie, The Original Saucy Mama! They were even sweet enough to post a video…click here.
Anyway, the Saucy Mama product package that I received to participate in that contest is the gift that keeps on giving. I say that because after the contest, I was left with several great products to put to use in my daily life like Saucy Mama’s Apricot Ginger Mustard. I recently used it to make some incredible chicken strips! I coated the chicken with this mustard prior to breading and baking. WOW…It was like having chicken strips with no need for dipping sauce!
P.S. I served these with some fabulous onion rings courtesy of Jessica’s recipe @Kitchenbellecious
|Start by cutting your chicken into strips and marinating in the Apricot & Ginger Mustard|
|Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then dredge in breading mixture.|
|Carefully coat breaded strips in butter & olive oil mixture…Bake and you’re ready to eat!|
Apricot Ginger Chicken Strips
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3-4 strips each
3 tablespoons Saucy Mama Apricot Ginger Mustard
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Coat chicken strips with Saucy Mama Apricot Ginger Mustard, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a shallow dish, mix together flour, Panko crumbs, onion powder, and paprika. Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in breading mixture. In a heavy oven-proof skillet, heat butter and olive oil together until butter is melted. One at a time, carefully roll breaded strips in butter mixture and arrange in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, until strips are golden brown. Enjoy!

Oh yes, these chicken strips look super delicious!!!! Your cover zoom-in picture is killing me. So irresistible! Ginger and apricot definitely appetizing to me. What a great recipe and thanks for sharing this!
Looks delicious. Thanks for sharing. Will you also include wine pairings from time to time?
I will always and forever love chicken strips. I may replace the mustard with dijon, though. It’s all I have! haha.

OMGoodness, I LOVE the Saucy Mama Apricot Ginger Mustard! This recipe sounds wonderful!
@Angela…Thanks, that one tickled me too!
@Nami…You’re so sweet, that means a lot coming from you. Your recipes and food photography are to die for!
@Natasha…Thanks for visiting ShawnsPlate…Being an avid wine drinker, I’m happy to oblige. This particular dish would work well with a crisp white, like a Fume Blanc.
@Katie…Girl, go for it! Dijon would work just fine..If you want sweetness, just add some honey 🙂
@Jessica…Ditto on your blog and recipes!
@Celeste…Me too! I’m still dreaming about that Saucy Mama dish that you made with shrimp & avocado!
