Honey Mustard Sauce
Whisk together honey and Dijon mustard in a small mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or transfer to a sealable container and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

Chicken Strips
Whisk together in a small mixing bowl flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Pour flour mixture into a plastic bag. Drop chicken strips into the bag and immediately gently shake and move around to coat. Place coated chicken strips on a sheet of wax paper near cooking area. Place a few paper towels on a large plate and have ready near cooking area.

Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a large nonstick skillet. When oil is hot, add about 1/3 of the chicken strips and cook until golden brown n all sides. When chicken strips are done, place on paper towels to drain. Cook 1/2 of remaining chicken strips, then the last remaining batch, immediately placing all cooked chicken strips on paper towels to drain after cooked.

Remove honey mustard sauce from refrigerator and heat in microwave or small saucepan until warm (not hot).
