“Bang Bang Chicken” – Recipe Swap!


Hey ya’ll! I am so excited to share this post with you! I was asked to join a group of Food Bloggers who, once a month, participate in a Recipe Swap! We are each tasked with another bloggers site and then given choice of any recipe they’ve made to “re-do” and make ourselves!! Eeee! This month I was assigned to Miri In The Village , a blog that focuses not only on food but DIY, home and parenting as well! I had a hard time picking just 1 recipe to make, I mean they all looked so yummy, but eventually I settled on her “Bang Bang Chicken”.

This recipe is so full of flavor and took little time to prepare, you guys will LOVE it! My hubby and I devoured it, like literally…the chicken is first dipped in a thick batter before getting coated in panko breadcrumbs and, to top it all of, it is then smothered in an incredible sweet and spicy sauce!! Mmm, are you drooling yet? Check out the texture of the chicken:


Now, I do have some tips for you to help make it even easier for you to replicate this yummy dish!

Tips and Tricks for the perfect bang bang chicken every time!
  • Cut your chicken into even pieces to ensure the cooking time is the same
  • Whisk your wet ingredients together first before adding to your dry ingredients to make the thick batter (this ensures that everything is evenly mixed)
  • We found we needed more panko than what the recipe called for, have more on hand just in case!
  • Change out your oil!! (trust me) This will help to prevent the chicken from burning on the outside before cooking through (the panko that comes off during the cooking will otherwise stay in the pan and burn)
  • Add more or less hot sauce, to fit your heat preference! (We liked ours a little spicier).

I was attracted to this because of the name - and yummy, it sounds so good! I love a nice panko batter -its absorbs less oil than regular breadcrumbs, so its deliciously light.
