The other night, I found an amazing recipe for Bang Bang Chicken on Pinterest from one of my favorite bakers, Damn Delicious. Her recipes are FABULOUS.
I have seen this recipe running around the internet for a while and have wanted to make it, so I broke down the other night and got the stuff and whipped it up for my family.
They all said that it was hands down, the best dish I have ever made — like ever.
What makes this chicken taste so fabulous is the bang bang sauce that you mix together to put over the chicken. Before you add that, you have fried nuggets, but then add in the bang bang sauce and you have a wonderful and most delightful dish.
This dish can be made in 30 minutes. The thing that takes the longest is getting your mixes together (dry and liquid) to dip your chicken pieces in.
Here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
Adapted a little from Damn Delicious

For the sauce
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise

- To make the sauce, whisk together mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, honey and Hot Sauce in a small bowl; set aside.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
