    Sauce was tasty! I added a little extra hot sauce because we like spicy. It was pretty easy, but the breading and frying in batches took longer than the recipe indicated.

    Tastes just like BoneFish Bang Bang Shrimp!!! This recipe was fantastic, only thing I would say to make it better is heat up the sauce before tossing the shrimp/chicken in!! 10/10!

    This turned out great. It did take me longer than 30 minutes to prepare. It also required more than a cup of panko. I also doubled the sauce like the other reviewers.

    This Bang-Bang Chicken was yummy & simple to make. I even made Bang-Bang Shrimp! FYI: you can substitute Chick-Fil-A sauce for the sweet chili mayo sauce...mmmmm.

    This recipe was simple to follow and easy to make. I think the heat was too high and I made the second batch darker brown than I would have wanted. But that sauce was perfection on each piece of chicken. So delicious and crunchy. We are definitely making this recipe again!

    Was decent. My oil was slightly hotter so the first few had a slight burnt taste. More flavour is needed for the chicken batter. We plan on making them again and adding lemon pepper seasoning.

    Amazingly good. I followed the recipe exactly except I doubled everything (big family) and deep fried the chicken. I will be making this again shortly.

    I followed the recipe exactly. The chicken was incredibly crunchy. To the point where it actually hurt my mouth. The sauce was really good but I found the chicken a little bit bland. Served over steamed rice. Probably wouldn’t make it again.
