Brown Sugar & Sriracha Baked Chicken

Hello all,

So a good friend of mine doesn’t like the taste of honey and doesn’t eat honey that has been heated due to her Ayurvedic eating plan. So I came up with this recipe just for her. If you do want to try these wings using honey click here for that recipe. Now let’s get cooking.

Ingredients:

3 pounds of chicken
2 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder and black pepper

Sauce:

1/3 C Brown Sugar (DIY recipe here)
1/3 C Sriracha
1 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil + 1 Tbsp of Toasted Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Amino Acid ( this is a low sodium soy sauce alternative – I prefer Bragg’s Brand)
1 tsp rice wine vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°

In a pan on low heat add all of the ingredients for your sauce.
Stir to get everything evenly incorporated. Once mixture comes to a slight boil, remove from heat and set aside.

In a small bowl add your seasonings. Place chicken in a large bowl and season. Make sure every piece is evenly coated with seasoning.

Next pour your sauce over. Mix to get every piece coated with the sauce. Let marinate anywhere from 5 minutes to overnight in the refrigerator.

Once done marinating, place the chicken on a parchment lined baking sheet….skin side up. Pour the remaining sauce over the top and bake for 45-50 minutes.

4 Easy Steps for Sriracha and Honey Baked Chicken

Hello all,

I was looking to try something new. I realize that when it comes to cooking…..I often try something new, last minute. Thankfully it works out in my favor. Now it’s time to share but before I do……this recipe had the house smelling wonderful. When it was done cooking and cooled a bit….I had the family do the usual taste test. Can I just say soooooo delicious? Juicy and tender with a hint of sweetness and hint of a spicy kick.

OK, so let’s get cooking so you can see for yourself.

Ingredients:

3+ pounds of chicken legs/wings/or thighs
1/3 Cup of Sriracha
1/3 Cup of Honey
2 TBS of Grapeseed Oil (or oil of choice)
1 Tbs of Sesame Oil
1 Tbs of Amino Acid or Soy Sauce
1 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper

Instructions:

1. Soak chicken in water and 1/2 Cup of vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar.) For 20 minutes if it’s already thawed and if frozen for about 1 hour. Next drain, rinse and dry. ( I soak my chicken in vinegar for 2 reasons, it helps to tenderize and clean the chicken.

2.  Pre-heat oven to 425°. Season chicken with garlic, onion powder and black pepper. Place in a large bowl.
