Tender shredded chicken and crunchy cucumber covered with bold-flavored spicy peanut sauce, this Bang-Bang Chicken (棒棒鸡) is another 30-minute dish that’s worth trying this summer!
Bang-Bang Chicken(棒棒鸡), the famous Szechuan-style shredded chicken salad dish, is one of my favorite chicken recipes to cook in the summer. The flavorful and tender chicken is the best part, making it hard to put down!
Starting with ingredients, this dish only requires a few, which is shredded chicken breast, Japanese cucumber and home-made spicy peanut sauce.
The spicy peanut sauce can be made easily by combining grated garlic, soy sauce, Chinese vinegar, salt, sugar, peanut butter, sesame oil and chili oil. You can use it for many other dishes as well, it is extremely versatile!
When all the ingredients are in a bowl, all we need is mixing them together until the shredded chicken and cucumber are both evenly covered in the sauce.
Total time needed to make this bang-bang chicken is only 30 minutes. It’s my go-to dish for a stress-free summer meal.
If you haven’t tried this, you should! I guarantee you’ll love it.

2. Japanese cucumber is long, has a thinner skin, mild taste and less seeds, is great for making a salad or a stir fry.
