Just grab a wooden stick with the chicken breaded breast filet on it and dip in a sauce like sweet and sour sauce, ketchup or similar. Afterwards lay away the empty stick and grab another chicken skewer dip it in sauce…

Recipe for chicken skewers:

1. Take 3 soup bowls fill one with flour, one with beaten egg and another with breadcrumbs. Additionally keep a plate (e.g.) at hand where to place the breaded chicken sticks.
