Flavour packed Honey Garlic Sriracha Chicken, made with the easiest, and most delicious marinade/dipping sauce! Restaurant quality chicken made right at home!
¼ cup honey
2 tbs Leaping Leopard Sriracha Sauce
5 cloves garlic crushed
2 tbsrice wine vinegar
1¼ tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 tbs freshly squeezed lime juice
6 boneless chicken thighs with or without skin
1 tbs cooking oil
Salt and pepper to season (If desired)
Steps To Follow
1In a shallow bowl, mix the honey, Sriracha, garlic, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and lime juice together until well combined. Spoon 4 tablespoons of marinade out of the bowl and reserve to use for later as a dipping sauce.
2Cover with plastic wrap and marinade chicken for a minimum of 30 minutes to 2 hours (if time allows), in the refrigerator.
3Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a nonstick pan or cast iron skillet (or grill pan) over medium heat. Sear the chicken in two batches (I do 3 thighs per batch), on both sides along with any sauce leftover in the bowl, until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle; the skin is crisp and golden browned, and the underside is charred slightly (chicken will char slightly due to the honey). Transfer chicken to a warm plate, tent with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
4OPTION A: Add the reserved sauce to the hot pan to warm through on medium heat, stirring occasionally while mixing all of the pan juices through the sauce.
OPTION B: Do not add the sauce to the pan. Serve chicken with remaining pan juices left over in the pan, and pour reserved sauce over each chicken (this option ensures a slightly spicier end result).
5Serve chicken immediately along with the sauce. Garnish with sliced green onion, sesame seeds and lime wedges. Serve with steamed veggies, over rice or noodles.
