This sweet and spicy Asian-inspired fried chicken is insanely good and pairs perfectly with a rich and velvety dipping sauce that is full of fresh herb flavors. You can use one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk for both steps in this recipe to create a sweet, rich, and savory dish your whole family will love. If you want to make your recipe spicier, just add a bit more Sriracha to the dipping sauce to bring up the heat.
