Best Sauces to Pair With Chicken
Chicken is the most consumed meat in the United States, according to the USDA. We can’t say we’re surprised, since chicken is so versatile. Fry it, grill it, boil it, bake it, or even spatchcock it for a variety of different meals. Then enters the real game changer, the sauce.
Sauce can take a dish from mediocre to exceptional. It can add flavor, moisture, and improve the overall texture of a dish. Plus, it’s a great way to make your meal prep easier. Grab a few of your favorite sauces and you can turn your chicken into multiple different meals with varying flavors.
You can’t really go wrong when it comes to sauce and chicken, but we’ve broken down some of our favorite sauces to always keep on hand.
