Bang Bang Chicken

Bang Bang Chicken – From the Panko breading to the sweet chili mayo, this recipe is perfection!

I finally found Panko breadcrumbs. Seriously, I’ve never used them before until now.

And you know how they say ignorance is bliss, well that is so true. Because I did not know what I was missing, I knew they were supposed to be better but since I didn’t know I was more than happy with regular old breadcrumbs.

But Oh My God! I love love love Panko breadcrumbs. The chicken came out so crispy, so crunchy, so heavenly! Seriously! I am never going back to regular breadcrumbs again. You know when you find a product that you end up using forever because you just can’t live without it, well that’s me now with Panko breadcrumbs. It’s breadcrumb heaven!
