This Popcorn Chicken Dipping Sauce Recipe was loved by all. The second I saw all of them eating the popcorn chicken, I knew it was a recipe I needed to share on the blog!

1/4 teaspoon of salt

*Again – we like it hot, so you might want to hold off on the pepper and just add to taste.

How to Make Popcorn Chicken Dipping Sauce Recipe:

Step #1: Take your butter, hot sauce, steak sauce, vinegar, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper and add all in a pot to heat up.

Step #2: You want to make sure you bring these ingredients to a good heat. Make sure you’re stirring at the same time. Don’t let anything get to a boil, but make sure the heat is moving.

Step #4: You can mix in the popcorn chicken or add on the side for dipping.
