Bang Bang Chicken

I'm always hearing about Bang Bang Chicken and Bang Bang Shrimp and how absolutely delicious it is. I've never had it before since we do not have a Bonefish Grill near us. So this is the closest I'm going to get to real Bang Bang Chicken! I found this recipe on Pinterest and had to give it a try. Wow! This was insanely good with the perfect amount of spice. Now I just need to try the original to compare the two!

Bang Bang Chicken
Adapted Slightly from Damn Delicious
Serves 4

1/2 cup vegetable oil, or more, as needed
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 large egg
1 tablespoon hot sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup Panko

1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce (I used Chili Garlic Paste)
1 tablespoon honey
2 tsp. Frank's hot sauce (I used 1tsp sriracha)


To make the sauce, whisk together mayonnaise, garlic paste, honey and sriracha in a small bowl; set aside.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, flour, cornstarch, egg, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste.

Working one at a time, dip chicken into buttermilk mixture, then dredge in Panko, pressing to coat.

Working in batches, add chicken to the skillet and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about
about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Serve immediately, drizzled with sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!
