Sticky Sweet Crispy Chicken Strips are so good your family will think you ordered takeout! This dish is easy to make and a big winner for a weeknight dinner.


  • 25 ounce package Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips
  • 1/3 cup red hot pepper sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup, optional (adds shine and a little extra sweetness to the sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Ranch dressing, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spread the Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips onto an ungreased sheet pan (line with foil for easy clean up) and bake according to package instructions. Note: the package also provides air fryer instructions as an alternative to oven baking.
  3. While the chicken strips are baking, combine the hot pepper sauce, brown sugar, corn syrup, and BBQ sauce in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to low heat. Stir often and allow the sauce to simmer just until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. When the chicken strips are finished baking, add 1 tablespoon of water to the sauce and whisk well. This thins the sauce a bit as it may thicken too much while cooling. Coat each chicken strip in the sauce by either dipping them into the sauce with a fork, or by spreading the sauce over each chicken strip with a silicone pastry brush.
  5. Serve hot with ranch dressing for dipping if desired.
