Prep Time: 20 mins

Servings: 5 servings


  • 25 oz Tyson Frozen Crispy Chicken Strips


  • 1/3 cup Franks hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar - packed
  • 3 tablespoons water


  • Prepare the chicken strips according to package directions. I like to fry mine in vegetable oil. If you want to use this method, this is how I do it: fill a pot with oil about 2 inches deep. Heat oil to 375°F. Add half of the chicken strips to the oil and fry for 7 minutes. Use kitchen tongs to transfer the chicken strips to a paper towel lined plate. Fry the other half of the chicken strips.
  • Once the chicken strips have been fried/baked or prepared how you wish, transfer the chicken to a large bowl. Drizzle the sauce overtop of the chicken and toss to coat. Serve warm with a side of ranch dressing.

How to make the sauce

  • In a small saucepan add the hot sauce, brown sugar, and water. Cook over medium heat until the brown sugar dissolves. The mixture should come to a boil. Once boiling remove from heat.
  • Let the sauce cool to room temperature before pouring over top of the chicken. Note, the sauce will thicken as it cools.
  • Do not pour hot sauce over the chicken... the sauce must cool to allow time for it to thicken.


Use Franks hot sauce, it's the best!
Wingers Sauce: You can make the sauce in advance if you'd like. Just store in the refrigerator for several days. When ready to use let the sauce come to room temperature before pouring over the chicken.
Air Fryer: While I enjoy deep-frying my Tyson chicken strips, you can choose a healthier option by Air Frying them. Just cook your strips at 360 degrees F for about 11-12 minutes until crisp and cooked through.
Storing: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. 
Reheating: Reheat in the microwave or on a foil lined baking sheet in a 400°F oven for 10 minutes or until warmed through.
