These tasty chicken strips dipped in the lightly sweet sauce are a wonderful finger food. They go over really well at outdoor summer gatherings. This recipe puts a new twist on fried chicken - a staple at most picnics. -Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

"This is an all-time favorite of our family! I use less than half of the mayonnaise and stir the chicken strips into it."

"These were pretty good. I didn't get a lot of sesame flavor, so maybe I should have toasted the seeds. I used chicken tenders, and they were nice and crispy. I didn't make the sauce since there was enough mayo in the recipe already. I sprayed my baking sheet and didn't have any trouble with them sticking."

"It was very, very, VERY good and also very easy to make! Two thumbs up! (Also good dipped in ranch dressing)."
