Chicken: We recommend using boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenderloins for this recipe. They cook quickly and have a tender texture. However, you can also use boneless, skinless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat.
Coating: To achieve a crispy exterior on the chicken, coat it in a mixture of cornstarch and spices before frying. This helps create a deliciously crunchy texture.
Frying: Heat oil in a pan or skillet over medium-high heat for frying the chicken. Make sure the oil is hot enough before adding the chicken pieces. You can test the temperature by dropping a small piece of breaded chicken into the oil – it should sizzle and start browning immediately.
Bang Bang Sauce: The sauce is the star of this dish, providing a creamy and tangy flavor. The key ingredients for the sauce are mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and a touch of honey. Feel free to adjust the sweetness or spiciness according to your preference. You can also add a squeeze of lime juice for a zesty twist.
Assembly: Once the chicken is cooked and crispy, remove it from the pan and let it drain on a paper towel to remove any excess oil. Garnish with some chopped green onions or sesame seeds for added flavor and presentation.
Serving Suggestions: Bang Bang Chicken goes great with steamed rice or noodles. You can also serve it with a side of fresh vegetables, such as steamed broccoli or a crisp salad, to balance the richness of the dish.
Storage: If you have leftovers, store the chicken and sauce separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator. The chicken may lose some crispiness when reheated, but it will still be delicious. Reheat in the oven or microwave until warmed through.
