A crispy chicken nugget should be able to stand on its own. But sometimes you want a delicious, spicy sauce to dip it in! Chef Aaron McCargo Jr. knows his chicken and knows his sauces. So here are three of his best dipping sauces for your chicken nuggets (which maybe you cooked with our air fryer hack here!).
