Bang Bang Chicken Salad

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.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Total: 25 mins
Yield: 4 servings
Serving Size: 6 pieces chicken + salad

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.

    Made it. Loved it. Will def make it again. SO GOOD!  I haven’t made a skinny taste recipe yet that I didn’t love. 

  3. Made this tonight for dinner.  Cooked the chicken in the air fryer.  It was Moist and a little crispy on the outside.   doubled the dressing and added 2 Tbsp of water to thin it just a bit.  Really tasty and will definitely make again.  Thank you.

  4. This was easy and absolutely FANTASTIC!! My family agreed it’s a keeper for the menu and i can’t wait to make it again. Although it was baked it was still crunchy and I loved using the olive oil instead of eggs and Flour to dredge it in. I also used some shrimp and it all turned out great. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

  5. Could you substitute the mayo for Greek yogurt instead? Or is there a better way to substitute the mayo? 

  6. These are a huge favorite in my house, especially with the kids. I just had a quick question. Have you tried doing these in an air fryer? I am just wondering if there’s any recipe changes or what the cooking times and settings would be. Thanks.

  7. This was so good, probably one of my favourites from this site! I made a little extra sauce and I paired it with raw cucumbers, carrots, celery and peppers. I was totally craving pub style food…this was way better tasting and way better for you! My entire family gobbled this up….yum!

    Is there a way to thin the sauce or dressing we like it on shrimp but want flavor but not more mayo at least. We found at dinner this evening we either couldn’t taste it or had enough we have up the calories. I was cuirous.

  9. We had this for supper tonight and it was delicious! I used a bag of Dole Asian Salad which had chopped Romaine and Cabbage and chicken already diced in the butcher’s case. It was as easy as it gets, full of flavor and be a trusted go-to recipe. Thank you!

    Does the nutritional information/SP values include the bang bang sauce? I made this in the air fryer and it was great! Thanks!

  11. This was delicious, light, yet filling! I grabbed broccoli slaw by accident, instead of red cabbage but the crunchiness of cabbage/slaw was so nice. Loved this recipe and so did my family. Thank you for another hit!!

  12. How do you get the breading to be crispy? Every time I make a recipe like this the meat comes out soggy. Help. 🙂
