Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the lemon curd, chicken broth, soy sauce & ground ginger until well-combined, then cook & stir over medium heat until heated through. Remove from heat, but keep warm.
  2. In a shallow container, whisk together the buttermilk & lemon zest & set aside.
  3. In a second bowl, whisk together the flour & cornstarch.
  4. Dip chicken strips in buttermilk-&-zest mixture, then dredge in the flour mixture, coating completely.
  5. Preferably using an electric skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees F, then fry chicken, 3 or 4 strips at a time, on each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain the cooked strips on several layers of paper towels, & when finished, serve with the lemon dip, if using as an appetizer, or layer the fingers over a side of brown rice & top with the lemon curd mixture.

We enjoyed these fried chicken fingers with the lemon dip. I never would have thought to make a savory dip using lemon curd but it really works. I may reduce the amount of dip by half next time because we had quite a bit left over. Made for Newest Zaar tag.

Self-denial and that's not a muscle I use very often. I rather like the easy way self-gratification rolls off my tongue. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
