To make Honey Sriracha Chicken, you need to understand how to make the honey sriracha marinade. Once you get that right, you have some delicious chicken ready. You don’t need some fancy equipment to make this dish either. You can make it using whatever you have- a skillet, an oven, or a grill.
Here is the secret to making good Asian food- attaining a good balance between each of the flavors that are infused: sweet, spicy, salty, and sour.
Although every component need not be incorporated in a dish, adding them does create the most scrumptious dishes ever.
This can be seen in honey sriracha chicken, which is an amalgamation of every flavor in the book- sweetness, spiciness, saltiness, and a tinge of tanginess. The resulting chicken is very juicy and will take your taste buds on a trip with the most shocking flavors.
In fact, personally, I scraped off the yummy sauce from the skillet till it was completely clean. Honestly, you cannot blame me for that. The flavorful sauce was too good to waste.
What I specifically love about this recipe is that it is extremely simple. It has 6 basic ingredients, all of which can be found in every kitchen. We are talking about Chicken, honey, Sriracha, vinegar, garlic, and salts.
When it comes to the chicken, literally any part will do- breast, thighs, drumsticks, or wings. Tempting, right? Try it out for dinner tonight.
