Tangy Honey Mustard Sauce

 In Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Sauces, Summer, Under 30 Minutes, Vegetarian

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to honey mustard sauce. This all started when I was in the unfortunate, pre-teen stage; Insecure, my forehead constantly greasy and trying to figure out at what age you actually switched from a teen to a grown up… I still haven’t figured that one out but I have a lot more bills now so it must have happened somewhere along the way.

Most of you know that I have 10 siblings, 9 of them younger than me. This being the case it was not unheard of that the older, wiser, more mature siblings were assigned duties like making lunch for the clan. I remember the golden years of Sam’s club frozen, breaded chicken tenders like they were yesterday. Just preheat the oven to 425 and bake for 10 minutes each side.

I thought those chicken tenders were just the best thing and one day Sadie, the leader of the pack and superintendent of most situations, did something miraculous. She made honey mustard with a lemon. This honey mustard recipe and a lot of other good things that happened to me during that time I credit to her. Today, after years in the culinary industry I still fall back on this recipe. Make it and eat it with chicken, salad pretzels, or in a wrap! And PSA, know that an actual chicken tender has never made it to a Sam’s club box. Those are just butterflied breasts. But do we really care? If I can dip it in honey mustard I’m not sure that I do.
