Every time I open the fridge a lovely mason jar of homemade cranberry sauce calls my name. Watching it dwindle in quantities is concerning as cranberries are apparently only sold at supermarkets during the holiday season. So sad. However, not an advocate for waste and not knowing how long homemade cranberry sauce will last, another glorious meal was modified for dinner.
Chicken Strip Burgers are another T&T recipe made with potato buns, fresh fried chicken strips, crunchy lettuce, mozzarella cheese and honey mustard. This the original recipe comes from a local chain restaurant whose chicken sandwich was to die for until they changed it. Of course. Since I couldn't have the original chicken sandwich anymore, I made it my own at home and changed it to potato buns instead of plain buns, and chicken strips instead of a chicken patty.
For this recipe, the honey mustard was replaced with my beloved homemade cranberry sauce.
Scaled for Likability: Great
The local chain chicken sandwiches was my favorite non breakfast item. Not having it was sad but making my own was better than theirs ever was. Now that I have a taken a T& T recipe and modified it to homemade cranberry sauce I might have created a whole new problem. What to do with the chicken strip sandwich when there is no more cranberry sauce? Can I ever go back to honey mustard chicken strips sandwiches? Maybe, but not when there is cranberry sauce to be had instead. The only to make this recipe was to toast the buns instead of served room temperature. Oh, and to have a picture that is not upside down!
What a way to start a new year. Two new recipes with cranberry sauce that were both absolutely fantastic.
