Dynamite Chicken is made by batter-frying crispy chicken chunks served in a bed of spicy and tangy mayo sauce.
P.F. Chang’s Dynamite Chicken is a hugely popular appetizer just like Dynamite Shrimp and this is my humble attempt at recreating the iconic dish. Mine is a simpler version with everyday ingredients, added flavors and definitely some extra heat.
The husband was in awe and all that spicy mayo sauce did the trick.
This pushed me into sharing the recipe with y’all. I am super impressed with myself for getting this recipe bang on in my first try itself.
How to Make Dynamite Sauce
The ingredients of a dynamite sauce includes:
- 4 tbsp Chilli sauce or Sriracha sauce
- 3 tbsp Tomato ketchup
- 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Honey
- 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
Mix these together and Voila! There you have the most delicious creamy mayo sauce. EVER!
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.
Dynamite Shrimp Recipe Substitutes:
You can use the same recipe with chicken (like I did), shrimps and fish. Definitely use flaky fish for the recipe. 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 may choose to add only a tablespoon or so of the sauce to the fried chicken and use the rest as a dipping sauce.
