Gravy, hot sauce, ranch sauce … chances are you’ve dipped your chicken in it all. After all, fried chicken is one of the best receptacles for a densely flavorful sauce. But, there’s one sauce you may have forgotten: pesto! Think about it. You put pesto on plain pasta or on a lackluster sandwich, and it brings the dish to life. Why not give fried chicken that extra kick?
If you’re not completely convinced, or you're cooking for a home full of picky eaters, you could whip up an additional, more traditional sauce as well, and see which one goes over the best. It might just surprise you!
