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!


For the sauce:

For the egg mixture:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup milk

For the breading:

  • 1 ½ lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 1 ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside
  2. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl with a spoon. Cover and set aside until ready to use.
  3. In a small bowl, combine egg and milk and whisk together. Set aside.
  4. In a large ziploc bag, combine flour, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic, and basil. Zip closed and shake until mixed.
  5. To begin, bread the chicken by first dropping it into the ziploc bag and shake a few times. Then dip chicken into the egg and put back into the ziploc. Once coated, place each piece of chicken onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  6. To cook, bake on pan for 25 minutes. Once done, add half of the sauce to the chicken to coat (while the chicken is still hot). Sprinkle with a little extra dried basil and serve with sauce on the side. ENJOY.
  7. **For a more golden color, at the end of the cooking time, turn on broiler and place pan a few inches away. Broil about 2 minutes on each side. ENJOY.
