Plan ahead the chicken strips need to chill for a minumum of 6-24 hours, also the dipping sauce needs to chill before using to blend flavors, it is best to make both at the same time and refrigerate. If you do not care for the taste of cumin then omit. Prep time includes chilling time.

This was really good and simple to make, and the sauce was okay but I found it a little bland. I ended up switching to my own version of ranch. Next time I'll spice it up a little more, I was afraid to be too heavy handed because of my little ones. Thanks Kitten!
These are delicious! My entire family loved these. I did omit the cumin, but other than that, I made the recipe exactly as stated. The dipping sauce is a perfect accompaniment. Thanks for sharing, Kittencal!
