Seriously delicious Sriracha Chicken that is made on the grill is a dish that will impress your guests and is a must for anyone who loves spicy food.
As a family, we hardly ate any spicy food growing up. It wasn’t exactly standard fare in New England at the time and just wasn’t something my mom prepared. But now we are all addicted to spice and it often shows up at dinner, especially in the form of Sriracha. Like many, we are obsessed and try to work it into as many recipes as we can.
Recently, we needed an easy dish for a big family dinner and ended up making this amazing Sriracha Chicken. It can be used for chicken thighs, chicken breasts, or even pork and I can’t even tell you how good the sauce is. It is like the best spicy barbecue sauce and adds so much yummy to any protein. I want to swim in the Sriracha dipping sauce it is so good.
Want a little extra heat? Add 1-2 tbsp of Sriracha to the marinade as well. This is something I know I will be making all summer.
What is Sriracha Chicken?
Sriracha is a delicious, spicy sauce that is commonly used in Thai and Vietnamese cooking. The main ingredients that make up this sauce are red chili peppers, which gives the sauce its famous kick, garlic, and vinegar. If you are like me and love spicy foods, then this sauce is a pantry staple.
I put it on everything from steak fajitas to baked potatoes. I practically have an arsenal of sriracha recipes at the ready for when I am in the mood for spicy food. Sriracha also adds great flavor to chicken dishes, especially when used in a dipping sauce.
This sriracha chicken recipe is a flavorful, spicy dish that will impress any barbeque or dinner guest. Now that I have my hands on this delicious recipe, I will be cooking tasty sriracha barbecue chicken often during this upcoming summer.
What Goes With Sriracha Chicken?
One of my favorite barbecue recipes is grilled corn on the cob. Grilled garlic corn goes well with this sriracha barbecue chicken. To make this side dish, shuck the corn cobs. Place each cob onto a piece of aluminum foil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Wrap in the foil and cook on the grill grate for 15 minutes. The garlic powder in the corn recipe would highlight the garlic used in the sriracha chicken recipe marinade.
