Bang Bang Chicken

Bang Bang Chicken | Crunchy chicken bites with a sweet & spicy sauce |

I have seen a lot of bang bang shrimp recipes around, but I'm not the biggest shrimp fan so I didn't bother looking to see what it entailed. When I saw bang bang chicken, I definitely perked up my ears. The sauce definitely had my interests peaked. Overall, it has an amazing crunchy coating and the sauce is perfection.

What you need:
  • 1 pkg. chicken breasts, cut into pieces [bite-size or slightly larger]
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • Panko
  • Oil for frying
For the Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  1. Mix sauce ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Mix flour, cornstarch, garlic, paprika, and salt and pepper.
  3. Whisk in hot sauce, egg, and buttermilk until smooth.
  4. Add chicken to the mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Pour about 1 cup of Panko in a shallow dish. Coat chicken in Panko and press slightly to help the Panko stick.
  6. Heat about half an inch of oil in a deep skillet and fry chicken until golden brown on each side and cooked all the way through.
