We love dishes with a bit of a kick to them. This is probably why my Kickin’ Corn, Buffalo Chicken Dip and my Cajun Buffalo Wings are always a big hit! Last year when we reviewed the brunch menu at Bonefish Grill, I tried the Bang Bang Shrimp Eggs Benedict and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I have thought about that brunch often and when I came across a recipe for Bang Bang Chicken, I had to give it a try.
I will tell you that this recipe is a bit more complicated than my typical easy recipes. I seldom fry foods on my stove top so for me that was a bit of a challenge. Next time I make this, I am going to try it in my deep fryer and see if that is easier. The sauce for this dish is delicious and I will probably be making it to go on other dishes, it is just so darn yummy!
