Bang Bang Chicken
If you've been to Bonefish, then you know all about Bang Bang Shrimp. This is an amazing copycat recipe.
I have made it with shrimp. but we prefer chicken. This is an absolutely impressive meal to put together for company. We serve it alongside rice, asian Cole slaw, and these potstickers.
