Sweet, spicy, air-fried chicken that's tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. My version gets a double dose of bang-bang sauce which is sure to please the taste buds. Serve in leafy lettuce wraps if desired.

  • Place flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, close bag, and shake to coat. Transfer coated chicken pieces to the large bowl with the mayonnaise mixture and stir to combine.

  • Place panko bread crumbs in another large plastic resealable bag. Working in batches, drop chicken pieces into bread crumbs, close, and shake to coat.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place as many chicken pieces into the air fryer basket as you can without overcrowding. Cook in the hot air fryer for 10 minutes. Flip and cook 5 additional minutes. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  • Transfer fried chicken to a large bowl and pour reserved sauce over the top. Sprinkle with green onions and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

My first view posted before I was done and don’t know how to edit. This was really good. I cut back on the Sriracha sauce but next time I think we will use was recommended. It was not spicy at all and we really enjoyed it. The only problem was 10 minutes and then shake the basket and then 10 more minutes was a little too long and the second batch turned out a little too crispy. We will definitely be adding this to our weekly dinners. Thanks for posting! Read More

This turned out great!. Easy and quick to make but big impression. I backed off the Sriracha sauce by 1/2 as the sweet chili I used as a bit hotter. Read More

Really tasty. I made homemade Sweet chili sauce that is very spicy and went with the full amount of sriracha and it still wasn’t that spicy. The mayo really takes the heat out. I served it with sticky rice. I will definitely make it again. Read More
