For the Chicken:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (panko breadcrumbs work well)
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

For Garnish:

  • Chopped fresh cilantro or green onions (optional)
  • Sesame seeds (optional)


1. Season the Chicken:

  • Season the bite-sized chicken pieces with salt and pepper.

2. Breading Station:

  • Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes: one with all-purpose flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with breadcrumbs.

3. Coat the Chicken:

  • Dip each piece of chicken into the flour, ensuring it’s evenly coated.
  • Next, dip it into the beaten eggs.
  • Finally, coat it with breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the chicken. Place the breaded chicken on a plate.

4. Heat the Oil:

  • In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. You’ll want enough oil to submerge the chicken pieces.

5. Fry the Chicken:

  • Once the oil is hot (around 350°F or 175°C), carefully add the breaded chicken pieces in batches. Be cautious not to overcrowd the skillet.
  • Fry the chicken until it’s golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

6. Make the Bang Bang Sauce:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, Sriracha sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic powder, and onion powder until well combined. Adjust the Sriracha sauce to your preferred level of spiciness.

7. Coat the Chicken:

  • Toss the fried chicken pieces in the Bang Bang sauce until they are evenly coated.

8. Garnish and Serve:

  • Arrange the coated chicken on a serving platter.
  • If desired, garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, green onions, and sesame seeds for an extra burst of flavor and visual appeal.

9. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve your delectable Bang Bang Chicken as an appetizer, main course, or even as a unique party snack. Watch it disappear as your guests savor the irresistible combination of crispy chicken and zesty sauce.
