This is a fun spin on Bang Bang Shrimp recipe. 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. Oven or air fryer directions.

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!

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray, I used my Misto
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat or gluten-free Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp plain or gluten-free 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

Instructions

  • 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!!

To make in the air fryer:

  • In batches, cook the chicken in a pre-heated air fryer 400F 8 minutes, turning halfway.
