Sticky Sweet Chicken Finger Salad

3/4 cups brown sugar
1/8 cup water
2 or more T. Frank's Original Hot Sauce (must be Frank's, no two hot sauces are created equally and it's found by the BBQ sauces at most supermarkets. I've never found it by the Tabasco!)
1 T. light corn syrup
Whisk together in small saucepan and boil for about a minute. It should look like a glossy sauce and no longer sugary. I use 2 T. Frank's for my kids and usually add 1 more T. for my husband and I. Sometimes we double the sauce.

I use the kind shown, found at Costco. Tyson has one, but it's pricey! It's important to use breaded chicken, but not the kind that's peppered! I've tried it and it's gross. I've also tried to bread the chicken myself and it doesn't taste right either. Anyway, I bake them on a cookie sheet and cook them a little longer than the pkg. says so that they're just a little crispy, but not overdone. You can fry them in oil, but that's way more work and too many more calories! When they're done, pour the sauce over!

I use the Hidden Valley Ranch Original, but mix it with buttermilk instead of milk and of course mayo! It's the closest thing to restaraunt ranch I can find. If I don't have buttermilk, I use milk and it's great, but it takes 2nd place in my opinion!

Basic Salad:
Lettuce ,tomato, cucumber, green bell pepper, purple or green onions

Put your salad on your plate. Put chicken with sauce on top. Pour on the Ranch and wa-la!
