Sriracha Chicken

Who else LOVES Sriracha sauce?  When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.  I don't love to cook with meat with bones in it so I modified it a little bit and made it with boneless skinless chicken thighs.  We buy it in bulk at Costco (told you I was an old lady) and it was so good.  I double the sauce (duh) and added more Sriracha sauce for extra spiciness. 

2 lbs of chicken of your choice
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
(For the glaze)
5 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp flour
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Sriracha (I added more by tasting.  I personally thought this was not enough)
2 tbsp soy sauce
juice of 1 lime

1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2.  To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.  Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce, and lime juice.  Bring to a boil then simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
3.  In a large bowl, combine chicken, butter, oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
4. Place chicken onto a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.
5.  Brush the glaze on the chicken and broil for 1-2 minutes.

By the way, have y'all heard of Sriracha2go?  They make a refillable bottle on a key chain so you can have Sriracha sauce wherever you go.  Too bad they are back ordered for at least 45 days, because these would make great gifts for Christmas.

  1. Too bad the sriracha sauce key chain is sold out -- now I know what to get you for Christmas next year, though! -- Jenn
