  • olive oil spray
  • 2 tsp. Olive oil
  • 6 Tbsp. Whole wheat or gluten-free Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. Plain or gluten-free panko
  • 16 oz. 2 Large skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into 24 1-inch chunks
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups Shredded romaine
  • 1 cup Shredded red cabbage

Skinny Bang Bang Sauce

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. Light mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. Scallions, chopped fine plus more for topping
  • Tbsp. Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Sriracha, or to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  • Put the olive oil in one bowl and the breadcrumbs and panko in another.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper, then put in the bowl with the olive oil and mix well so the olive oil evenly coats all of the chicken.
  • Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the breadcrumb mixture to coat, then on the baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray the top with olive oil spray then bake 8 – 10 minutes. Turn over then cook another 4 – 5 minutes or until cooked though.
  • Meanwhile combine the sauce in a medium bowl. When the chicken is ready, drizzle it over the top and enjoy!!

Air Fryer

  • In batches, cook the chicken in a pre-heated air fryer 400F 8 minutes, turning halfway.
