Bang Bang Chicken & Rice Bowls

This is one of my all time favorite sauces! It is a lightened up version than what you get at the stores so you save on WW points and calories!

I use greek yogurt instead of mayo and mostly sugar free sweet chili sauce. You can use all sugar free but I really enjoy adding a small amount of the regular version to mine!

I also really enjoy mixing in Newmans Own Light Sesame Ginger dressing to my slaw. I warm everything up and mix it all together. It may sound crazy but it is so DELISH!!


Bang Bang Chicken & Rice Bowls

Nevermind my poor food pics here…this turned out DELISH! I love bang bang anything because the sauce is so addicting. I wanted a lightened up non-breaded version so this is what I went with for my lunches!

Equipment

  • 1 Air Fryer
  • 1 Rice Cooler
  • 2 Large Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Medium Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Sauce Brush
  • 4 Glass Lunch Containers
  • 4 Condiment Containers

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups White Rice (any rice of your choice)
  • 4 cups Mixed Cabbage w/ carrots (I used Trader Joes)
  • 2 tbsp Newmans Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing (optional)
  • 1 Olive Oil Spray (you can use oil too but it will add points/calories)

Bang Bang Chicken

  • 1-1/2 lbs Chicken Breast
  • 3/4 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 3/4 tbsp Paprika
  • 3/4 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (any salt works)

Bang Bang Sauce

  • 1-1/2 cups G Hughes Sugar Free Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Sweet Thai Chili Sauce (w/ sugar) optional
  • 1-1/2 cups Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Wholesome Yum Keto Honey Substitute

Instructions
 

  • Cut up your chicken breast in bite size pieces and place in large mixing bowl
  • If using EVOO, drizzle on and add your seasoning; a bit at a time while you continuously mix to get all pieces seasoned. Set aside for a few minutes.
  • Mix your bang bang sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. I usually use a whisk to get it really mixed up. Spoon out into your 4 condiment containers and refrigerate. Set aside remaining sauce.
  • Set air fryer to 400 for 20 minutes
  • Once air fryer is heated, add half of your chicken breast pieces, spray with olive oil spray and brush your pieces with some of your bang bang sauce.
  • Half way (your fryer should beep at you), mix up your chicken in the basket and brush again.
  • At this point, start your rice cooker!
  • Add your cabbage to a bowl and mix in the dressing then set aside.
  • When your first batch of chicken is cooked, dump into your clean bowl and repeat the above process with your second batch.
  • Once all of your chicken is cooked, mix more of your sauce in. (This is optional but it will help with your chicken not drying out later).
  • Set out your lunch containers and start with adding your rice (2/3-1 cup cooked each).
  • Add your slaw on one side, then your chicken on the other.
  • Drizzle with more bang bang sauce!
  • I added sweet mini red pepper slices, parsley and white sesame seeds.
