Bang Bang Chicken has a crunchy, crispy exterior and is drizzled with a wonderful Bang Bang sauce made from mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and Sriracha sauce. The spicy-sweet sauce is irresistible.

This Bang Bang Chicken is similar to Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp which is one of my favorite appetizers ever.

Bite-sized pieces of chicken are coated in batter, pressed into Panko crumbs for a super crispy coating, and fried until golden. The simple sauce is only 3 ingredients. If you want it a little sweeter, add some sugar. If you want it spicier, add some more Sriracha sauce. Drizzle a little or a lot on the chicken. I definitely recommend serving the chicken with extra sauce for dipping.

Since the chicken is cut into bite-sized pieces, it fries up in just a few minutes. I recommend frying in vegetable oil, but you could use Canola oil or peanut oil instead.

The cornstarch in the batter and the Panko crumbs create a super crispy but light and crunchy coating for the chicken.

This Bang Bang Chicken is a great appetizer and works well as a weeknight meal. It tastes great wrapped in lettuce and is a little lighter and healthier served that way.

One thought on “Bang Bang Chicken

  1. Please look up how Canola oil is processed; I doubt you will ever use it again.
    Production process
    Canola oil is made at a processing facility by slightly heating and then crushing the seed. Almost all commercial canola oil is then extracted using hexane solvent which is recovered at the end of processing. … About 44% of a seed is oil, with the remainder as a canola meal used for animal feed.
