Description

A super easy,  6 ingredient, sweet and spicy honey sriracha chicken recipe that’s sweetened with a sticky honey sriracha glaze! Grilling and oven-roasted instructions included!


Scale

Ingredients

Sweet & Sticky Sriracha Glaze

  • 3 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup)
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (freshly squeezed, approximately 1/4 of a lime)

Instructions

Preparation

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Combine honey, sriracha and lemon juice and water together to create a glaze and set aside.

Grilling Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the grill on medium heat.
  2. Grill chicken for about 45 mins or until meat juices run clear
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, brush the sriracha glaze onto the chicken. Every 1 minute, brush on more glaze, then flip the chicken. Repeat this until all the glaze has been used. Keep an eye out on it to make sure it doesn’t burn! The sugars in the sauce burns quickly from the BBQ heat
  4. Once the chicken is done, set it aside and let it rest for 5 minutes before digging in!

Oven Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F
  2. Place the chicken in a oven safe pan on top of a rack. If you don’t have a rack, scrunch up a few sheets of foil and gently un-ravel it and place it on the bottom of the pan. Place the chicken on top of the textured foil.
  3. Cook chicken for 25 minutes and flip it
  4. Cook for another 35 minutes
  5. Once the chicken is cooked, brush the sriracha glaze onto the chicken. Every 2-3 minute, brush on more glaze, then flip the chicken. Repeat this until all the glaze has been used.
  6. Remove chicken from oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before digging in!

Notes

  • You can use any cut of chicken meat for this. I personally like to use dark meat (chicken legs, drumsticks or thighs).
  • For this recipe, you can use honey or maple syrup. Maple syrup will be slightly less sweet.
  • I like to use lime for this recipe, but I have used lemon juice as well. Both work well.
