How to make Bang Bang Chicken Skewers

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, and while it’s heating, get the chicken ready.
  2. Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes and add it to a large bowl. 
  3. Add the oil, paprika, mushroom powder, garlic salt, and black pepper to the chicken and toss to coat.
  4. Thread 4-5 cubes of chicken onto each soaked skewer and set them aside.
  5. Combine the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, honey and gochujang in a small bowl. 
  6. Divide the sauce in half, setting aside half for dipping the cooked chicken into. 
  7. Brush half the sauce over the chicken skewers, then grill them over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches 165-F on a digital meat thermometer.
  8. Serve with the remaining sauce, and dig in!

Tips & substitutions

  • For extra flavor, prep the chicken ahead of time and dust it in the spices. Pop it in the fridge for a few hours for the spices to really soak into the meat.
  • You can use metal skewers if you don’t want to deal with soaking bamboo ones. They almost always burn even if you soak them. 
  • If you don’t have gochujang, you can use sriracha.
  • Prefer to air fry your Bang Bang Chicken Skewers? Air fry them at 400-F for about 11-12 minutes, flipping them halfway.
  • Bake the skewers at 400-F on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for about 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway.
  • Ensure your chicken reaches 165-F on a digital meat thermometer for it to be safe to eat.
