Honey Sriracha Chicken

Honey Sriracha ChickenOne of the Mr’s favourite things is Sriracha sauce. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a hot sauce but with actual flavour. Not being a huge fan of hot sauces myself, it surprised me just how much flavour it really has!

Thanks to my blogging, the Mr tends not to get a lot of choice in what we eat so I thought I would be nice and make something I knew he would love. Also, (at the time of writing this post) I was nearly 40 weeks pregnant & hadn’t dropped yet. I heard hot & spicy foods are meant to be good!

Here is what you will need to serve 2 – easily doubled.

(Recipe adapted from Creme de la Crumb.)

For the Chicken

  • 2 Chicken Breasts, diced
  • Salt
  • 20g Corn Flour
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil

For the Sauce

  • 120ml Water
  • 1 – 2 tbsp Sriracha Sauce *
  • 2 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 30g Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Runny Honey
  • 1 tbsp Corn Flour/ 2 tsp Cold Water
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds to serve, optional
  • Cooked Rice to serve, optional

* If you don’t like it too hot, just use 1 tbsp. Trust me, even 1 tbsp of this stuff packs a punch!

To make the sauce – add the water, Sriracha, soy sauce, garlic, sugar & honey to a small saucepan and bring to the boil.

Simmer, stirring often, until the sauce begins to thicken. Continue to cook until you reach the consistency you like, then remove from the heat and set to one side until needed.

Place a non stick frying pan over a medium/high heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil.

Fry the chicken until golden & cooked through.

If you like, serve over cooked rice & scatter with some toasted sesame seeds.

Honey Sriracha ChickenI was genuinely surprised at how good this was! I mean, yes it was hot, but the flavour really was lovely. I will definitely be making this one again – particularly the sauce. Except maybe with only 1 tbsp of Sriracha next time… (To please the Mr I used 2 tbsp – bit too much for me!)

Not only does it taste great though, it’s really quick to make! And let’s be honest, you can never have enough meals that are fast to prepare and still seriously tasty in your repertoire.

In other news – on Friday 13th, (seriously, you couldn’t make it up) I spent the day getting this little beauty out the oven…

Tilly - Honey Sriracha ChickenI would like you all to meet my daughter – Matilda. Both myself & baby are doing well and are now at home enjoying our first few days together. I apologise for any absence over the coming weeks – as you can imagine, I will be a little busy getting to grips with becoming a Mum!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies. Until next time!

    Congratulations! Matilda is gorgeous!!! Love this chicken. Have you ever tried Tapatio sauce? I find it even more flavorful than Sriracha, but people have their preferences… Every time I visited my daughter in London, I had to take her a gallon jug of Sriracha!!!

  5. Trying this for sure! Thanks.
