    3 C shredded coleslaw mix (about half of a 14 oz. bag)

  • ¼ C + 2 T mayonnaise

  • ¼ C thinly sliced and chopped red onion

  • 1 ½ T red wine vinegar

  • 1 ½ T sugar

  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt

  • For the Fries:
    1 Bag Grown In Idaho Super Crispy Hand Cut Fries, 28 oz

  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper, divided

  • For the Chicken:
    16 oz frozen breaded chicken strips, cooked to package directions

  • ¼ C unsalted butter

  • 2 T honey

  • 1 T brown sugar

  • 1 T cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • ½ tsp paprika

  • ½ tsp Kosher salt

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, toss the coleslaw mix, mayonnaise, red onion, vinegar, sugar, and salt together with tongs until well mixed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  2. OVEN:
    Preheat Oven to 425 °F. Full Bag: 24-26 Minutes. Arrange frozen potatoes in a single layer on a 11″ x 17″ baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with 1 tsp cayenne. Bake according to instructions to desired color and crispiness, stirring halfway through cooking time.

    AIR FRYER:
    Preheat air fryer to 360 °F. Fill air fryer no more than half full of frozen potatoes. Sprinkle with ½ tsp cayenne. Cook 10-12 minutes. Slide out basket, shake halfway through cooking time. Transfer fries to a large skillet or serving dish. Repeat air frying instructions with the remaining frozen potatoes until full bag is cooked.

  3. While the fries are cooking, prep the chicken strips to package directions. Cut into small strips.

  4. Meanwhile, add butter, honey, brown sugar, cayenne, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper to a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until the sugar has dissolved and the ingredients are well incorporated.

  5. Toss chicken pieces into the hot sauce.

  6. Arrange the sauced chicken pieces on top of the fries in the serving dish.

  7. Top chicken with the reserved coleslaw mixture and sliced pickles.
