For even crunchier chicken chunks, shallow fry the chicken in about ½-inch oil in a large, deep skillet. Make the dip ahead and refrigerate until party time—the flavor will only get better.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place almonds and sesame seeds in food processor container fitted with metal blade. Process until coarsely chopped. Add cornflakes, salt, and crushed red pepper; process until well blended.

  2. Place crumb mixture into a shallow dish. In a second dish, place flour. In a third dish, lightly beat eggs with ¼ cup water.

  3. Dredge chicken lightly in flour, then dip into egg and roll in crumb mixture until well coated. Place on baking sheet; drizzle chicken with oil.

  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink in center and outside is crisp and golden.

  5. Meanwhile, place all sauce ingredients in food processor. Process until smooth. Serve with chicken chunks.
