Bangin Good Chicken Salad

Easy and delicious!

Here’s an EASY dinner solution: tender chunks of chicken, breaded and baked until golden topped with Bang Bang sauce. I served this over mixed greens and swooned with every bite!

This is a fun spin on Bangin Good Shrimp recipe. My friend posted her dinner the other day on facebook and it basically looked like this, it looked so good I knew exactly how I was going to make it. I basically modified my Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets and topped it with this banging good sauce. Results… AMAZING!! And it’s SO easy to make, I promise! You can easily halve the recipe for two.

Ingredients:

  • olive oil spray (I used my Misto)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp panko
  • 16 oz (2 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into 24 1-inch chunks
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups shredded romaine
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage

For the Skinny Bang Bang Sauce:

  • 2 1/2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp scallions, chopped fine plus more for topping
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sriracha (or to taste)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.

Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs and panko in another.

Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive
oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.

Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 – 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 – 5 minutes or until cooked though.

Meanwhile combine the sauce in a medium bowl. When the chicken is ready, drizzle it over the top and enjoy!!
