FAQ for Chicken Skewers with Bang Bang Sauce

Q: Can I use chicken breast only for this recipe?
A: Yes, you can use only chicken breast or only chicken thigh, or a combination of both. However, using both will give you a more flavorful and juicy result.

Q: Can I grill the skewers instead of baking or air frying them?
A: Yes, you can grill the skewers over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through.

Is it better to bake, airfry or Grill the skewers?

When it comes to cooking, my favorite method is grilling any type of meat. However, for a quick and easy weeknight dinner option, air frying is the way to go.

    I tried this recipe last night and my family LOVED it so it’s definitely going in the rotation. Toni was right – these are phenomenal air-fried so I would try it that way if I was you! I added one last ingredient to this recipe – hot honey. That was a little tiny kicker that went craaaazy with the ginger. I honesty cannot wait to make these again!

    This one was amazing, me and my whole family loved this. Put it in the oven for 20 minutes and it was perfect. I let the chicken marinate in the dressing for two hours before cooking it was super soft and juicy 🤤
