Bang Bang Chicken is an easy, weeknight dinner idea with a tangy, yet sweet sauce! This recipe calls for baking NOT frying the chicken, easy clean up!
The irony is not lost on me that I am sharing a recipe for Bang Bang Chicken even though I gave up meat for lent. However, BEFORE lent began, I made a bunch of meaty meals that I think you guys will love, so stay tuned for more coming soon too!
But back to this chicken recipe. If you’ve ever tried Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill restaurant, you know that sweet taste with a spicy kick at the end, yes? I remember the first time I tried it and fell in love….I’ve been pretty much thinking about doing this with chicken for a very long time.
And then I came across this Bang Bang Shrimp recipe from my friend Amanda and I knew it was time to give chicken a chance.
Only, instead of frying shrimp, I wanted to bake chicken instead. You know, keep it a *LITTLE* bit healthier. Okay, who am I kidding, I just didn’t want to clean up the splatters on my stove top when I fry chicken.
Seriously though, this Bang Bang Chicken was DELICIOUS. Thank you Amanda for such a tasty dinner recipe that will make it’s appearance on a regular basis (you know, once I’m eating meat again!)!! Don’t let the number of ingredients frighten you! It’s as simple as making the sauce and mixing it in a small bowl with a spoon (just dumping ingredients together). And for the chicken, you’ll make a breading mixture to dip, and an egg mixture to dip your chicken into. Easy. I promise!
