AND I deep fried them in my pizza dough. I am so damn irresponsible. But, can I tell you something?
These are straight up Rock Stars.
I made three different dipping sauces for them. Aaannndddd…my dear daughter Katelyn and her friend, Hannah, helped me out with these.
I love when my family gets involved with my cooking and blogging. It was extra fun because they’re crazy giddy little teens.
Ok, it’s true, I’m not liking the fact that they look like they’re 20 and they’re only 15. Is it the hormones in the chicken these days? That would be a big fat no. Maybe Hannah, but my daughter doesn’t eat chicken. Or any meat, for that matter.
Peanut butter doesn’t do that.
For the dipping sauces, I made hot jalapeno raspberry, traditional marinara, and a homemade enchilada sauce.
My favorite was the jalapeno raspberry.
Katelyn loved the marinara.
Let me introduce my beautiful taste testers –
I loved having my daughter involved in my work, even though she hates food. Except chocolate. And cheese. And bread. Oh, and jalapenos. And more cheese. Oh, and I’ve gotten her addicted to Cholula. Oh, hold on, I forgot to mention she has developed this amazing veggie sammy that we will be posting later. It’s outstanding and very post-worthy. I’m hoping some of my foodie passion will rub off on her.
