Sauce Essentials: Kickin’ Dippin’ Sauce

Andy Anderson !


A very easy sauce to put together, and although it benefits from an evening in the fridge, it can be served straight away. To be honest with you… it WILL taste better the next day.

If you are looking for a different dipping sauce for chicken nuggets, or wings, give this a try. It’s a great change from the usual hot-sauce recipes.

I have many more serving suggestions at the end of the recipe.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sauce Essentials: Kickin’ Dippin’ Sauce


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Chef’s Note: You have several choices for the first ingredient. You could use crème fresh, plain Greek yogurt, or sour cream. One of my guests suggested using some orange marmalade, and that sounded really yummy. Experiment, have some fun with it… That’s what cooking is all about.
  4. Add all the ingredients into a non-reactive bowl, or the bowl of a small prep blender.
  5. Whisk until completely combined.
  6. Chef’s Tip: I like using a small prep blender, just to make it as smooth and creamy as possible.
  7. Store in the fridge, using a tightly-sealed non-reactive container.
  9. Serving Suggestions:
    Chicken Nuggets
    Plain Chicken Wings
    Prime Rib Roast
    Raw Veggies
    A Topping for Baked Potatoes
    Freshly Baked Salty Pretzels
    Whatever you fancy…
  10. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
