How to make Try This Best Bang Bang Chicken:

Step 2: Mix the breading ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Step 3: Heat about 2-inch oil or enough to submerge the chicken.
Step 4: Coat the chicken pieces into the batter mixture.
Step 5: Once the oil is hot enough, coat the chicken pieces in panko and slowly and carefully drop them in the oil. Fry on medium heat until cooked through.
Step 6: Remove the fried chicken from the pan and dry on a kitchen tissue.
Step 7: For the Bang Bang sauce, combine the sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl until well mixed.
Step 8: Toss the fried chicken pieces into the sauce.
Step 9: Before serving, pour the sauce on top of the chicken, and serve immediately.
Make sure that the chicken pieces are dry for the batter to stick to them.
Ensure that the oil is not smoking (very hot) or cold or the chicken will burn.
Make room when frying and always fry in batches.
Bake and not fry the chicken if desired.
For oven-baked Bang Bang chicken, arrange the coated chicken on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. And bake in the oven for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. Flip the chicken pieces and continue to bake for 10 minutes more.
Toss or dip the chicken pieces into the sauce.
