Bang Bang Chicken

Has anyone ever heard of this? I had this as an appetizer last night and it was wonderful. Little pieces of chicken breast coated in something very light, fried, and served with two sauces - a light, creamy and somewhat sweet sauce and a mild chili sauce. I'd love to be able to make it, but don't even know where to start. I've searched a bit online for a recipe, but have had no luck. If anyone could point me to a recipe, I'd be very greatful. Thanks.

This is the recipe I use for making Bang Bang Shrimp/prawns. Just substitute chicken for the shrimp.

Bang Bang Prawns

Almost Famous Spicy Shrimp

La Recette~Courtesy of the Food Network~
For the Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (such as sambal oelek)
2 teaspoons honey
Kosher salt
For the Shrimp:
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 large eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1-1/4 pounds small shrimp, peeled and deveined
Bibb lettuce leaves, for serving
Thinly sliced scallions, for garnish
Make the sauce: Mix the mayonnaise, chili sauce, honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl; set aside.

Prepare the shrimp: Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl. Whisk the flour, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper in another shallow bowl.

Working in batches, dredge the shrimp in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, dip in the beaten eggs, then return to the flour mixture, turning to form a thick crust. Fry the shrimp in the hot oil until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes, adjusting the heat as needed to maintain the oil temperature. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon.

Toss the shrimp with the prepared sauce. Arrange the lettuce in a shallow serving bowl or on individual plates. Top with the shrimp and garnish with scallions.

I just ran across this recipe and thought you might want to take a look. I haven't made it so I can't personally tell you it's wonderful but it sounds good to me.

Given the name, I thought this recipe would be found here, but no go.

(That being said - there are quite a few good recipes in this book, with a TON of humor/parody to keep you cackling ar ar ar!)
