Bang Bang Popcorn Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Was thinking of making a sandwich out of these and decided to forgo the bread and make a lettuce wrap out of it. You could certainly also make an eclectic club salad out of it too. It’s a versatile chicken nugget with a little more heat than what you might serve to the kids.

Ingredients:
Two Chicken Breasts or Tenderloins
1 Bibb Lettuce
¾ cup of AP flour
½ cup corn starch
1 cup of Panko bread crumbs
1 beaten eggs
Blue Cheese Crumbles

Marinade:
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tbs Kosher Salt
1 tbs of Tabasco
1 tbs of SlapyaMama
2 tsp of Black Pepper

Sauce:

¼ cup of Dukes Mayo
2 tbs of Sweet Chili Sauce
1 tbs of Honey
1 tbs of Franks Hot sauce
Dash of Tabasco
1 diced green onion
Cilantro

Directions:
1. Marinade your chicken overnight. Go ahead and cut your breasts into bite sized cubes and allow the marinade to tenderize and flavor the chicken.

2. Make your sauce by combing everything in bowl and whisk together. Put it back in the fridge and let it set.

3. Lets cook the chicken. Set up your assembly line by pouring your chicken and marinade in a bowl and then stir in flour, corn starch and egg until pasty. Pour your Panko in another bowl and dredge your chicken and then put into the medium heated skillet with oil. Dredge enough so that they chicken doesn’t touch each other while frying. Remove and set aside on a paper towel.

4. Serve on Bibb Lettuce with a drizzle of the sauce and top with Blue Cheese crumbles and cilantro. As mentioned you could also make a salad and use the sauce as a dressing and add more veggies or even make a sandwich out of it.
