Batter fried crispy chicken chunks served in a bed of spicy and tangy mayo sauce gives a bombardment of flavors for the Dynamite Chicken.
In the Defence Forces, cocktail get-togethers are frequently held to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, when someone is going away, a visiting dignitary or a senior officer. These formal affairs are finished off well before dinner time. Usually, cocktails, soups, and snacks are served in lieu of dinner.
I will definitely share an easy cocktail recipe with you soon but here’s a tasty saucy snack that’s a hit with the men.
P.F. Chang’s Dynamite Chicken is hugely popular among the Arabs. This is a simpler version with everyday ingredients, added flavours and definitely some extra heat. I have heard of Dynamite Shrimps and preparing that for you guys was my initial plan. However, I tried out this one and the husband was in awe. That pushed me to share the recipe with y’all. I am super impressed with myself for getting this recipe bang on in my first try.
The bite-sized chicken chunks are marinated in flour, soy sauce, and spices for about half an hour. These are then double coated in flour and egg whites and is fried till crisp. A hot sauce is made and the fried chicken is mixed in it. Garnished with spring onion greens, Dynamite Chicken is usually served in martini glasses.
It’s the feisty and zesty flavor of the sauce that makes Dynamite Chicken so popular. It’ll make you go Kaboom!
Dynamite Chicken Recipe:
There are few recipes that I swear by and this is definitely one of them.
You can use the same recipe with prawns and fish. I am not sure of a vegetarian option. But I believe, cauliflower, potatoes or paneer would do justice.
Adjust the taste of the sauce according to your liking.
Also, you can add only a tablespoon or so of the sauce to the fried chicken, and use the rest as a dipping sauce.
Love it? You may want to pin it for later!
