Bang Bang Chicken Kabobs Cooking Tips


To ensure your kabobs turn out perfectly every time, follow these simple cooking tips:

  1. Marinate for Maximum Flavor: Marinate the chicken in the oil, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper for at least 30 minutes (or even overnight) to infuse flavor.
  2. Prevent Stickiness: Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes before threading the chicken onto them to prevent them from burning.
  3. Grill to Perfection: Cook the kabobs over medium-high heat on a well-oiled grill for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked and has a nice char.
  4. Serve with Extra Sauce: Don’t be stingy with the bang bang sauce! Serve extra on the side for dipping or drizzling over the kabobs for an extra flavor.
  5. Don’t forget Dessert: Serve these kabobs with delish and easy whoopie pies with cake mix.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts?
A: Absolutely! Chicken thighs will work just as well in this recipe and may add more juiciness to the kabobs.

Q: Is there a substitute for sweet chili sauce?
A: If you don’t have sweet chili sauce on hand, you can use a combination of ketchup and chili flakes for a similar flavor profile.

Q: Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
A: While the chicken can be marinated beforehand, it’s best to grill the kabobs just before serving to ensure they’re fresh and hot.

Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon Avocado oil coconut oil, or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Bang Bang Sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sweet chili sauce I like these brands: La Choy, Kikkoman, and Frank’s
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken chunks, oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the chicken.
    2 pounds boneless, 1 tablespoon Avocado oil, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon fresh garlic minced, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Thread 4-5 chicken cubes onto each.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and honey. Mix well. This will make about 1 1/2 cups bang bang sauce.
    1 cup mayonnaise, ½ cup sweet chili sauce, 2 tablespoons honey
  • Pour half of the sauce into a separate bowl and refrigerate to use after the chicken has been cooked. Brush the rest of the sauce evenly over the chicken.
  • Add the skewers to the grill or grill pan.
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway. Chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • Transfer the skewers to a plate. You can drizzle the reserved bang bang sauce over the skewers or serve it as a dip.
  • Note: For the sauce in the photos, I only used 1/4 cup of mayonnaise. I’ve since made these a couple more times and like the sauce with more mayonnaise. The recipe card reflects my preference of more mayonnaise with is much lighter in looks than the sauce on the photos.
