Chicken With A Bang
Chicken With A Bang
Bang Chicken – From the super crispy chicken coated in buttermilk and Panko breadcrumbs to the delicious sweet chili mayo, this recipe is perfection! You won’t be able to keep your hands off it.
Would you believe it if I told you I don’t make a lot of fried food? Seriously, I don’t, maybe if I had a deep frier I’d fry more, but as it is right now, I really don’t. But there are exceptions that I make and one of them is for this bang chicken with this banging sweet chili mayo sauce. This is one of those dishes where I have to fight my husband to stay out of the kitchen until I’m done, otherwise he’ll eat all the chicken before I can even serve it.
