Homemade Chicken Strips

These were a BIG hit tonight at our house!
We have a BIG OLE family now--so I increased the amounts and for the hone mustard sauce I did not have any orange juice--added some extra honey instead and it turned out perfect!

2 cups crushed sour-cream-and-onion-flavored potato chips
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
6 chicken breast fillets, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1/3 cup butter, melted
Honey Mustard, recipe follows
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spread the crushed potato chips in a shallow dish. Beat together the
egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken cubes into the egg
mixture and then dredge them in the chips. Place the chicken nuggets
on a baking sheet and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 15 to 18
minutes, or until golden brown. The chicken nuggets can be frozen
after baking. Serve with your favorite sauce, such as honey mustard or
ranch dressing.

Honey Mustard:

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons yellow mustard

1 tablespoon lemon juice or juice from 1/2 lemon

Horseradish, to taste

2 tablespoons orange juice (more or less as needed)

Combine all ingredients except orange juice; stir well. Thin to
pouring consistency for dressing or dipping consistency for dips with
orange juice. Cover and chill for 2 or 3 hours.
