Sour cream, chives and shrimp dip

Brought to you by FairPrice

A sure-fire hit

FairPrice Hot & Spicy Chicken Nuggets make for a zesty knock-out snack in more ways than one



These small bites pack a real punch. The "Hot & Spicy" labelling is not an exaggeration. One bite and you'll get a fantastic kick from the spice in these crispy and incredibly easy to prepare chicken nuggets.

Like FairPrice's popular original Chicken Nuggets, you can either deep-fry or shallow-fry these. I sometimes find it easier to just lay them out on a foil-lined baking tray and pop them in the oven for 20 minutes at 180°C. They still emerge crisp. And there's little washing up to be done after.

Whichever way you choose to prepare them, rest assured these wonderful snacks are trans fat- and preservative-free, and Halal - making them truly suitable for your whole family and friends.

You can serve them with ketchup or chilli sauce on the side. Personally, I like them with any kind of mayonnaise dipping sauce.

Otherwise, this tangy sour cream and chives dip makes for a nice accompaniment that counters the spiciness of the nuggets with the cooling qualities of cream. The bits of fresh shrimp also lend an added dimension, making it a "surf '*' turf" special of sorts.


FairPrice Chicken Nuggets and Hot & Spicy Chicken Nuggets ($6.45, 850g each) are available at all FairPrice supermarkets.
