Sriracha hot sauce
ground black pepper
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
My mouth watered when I read this recipe, for good reason! Delicious ... spicy, but could be mellowed by using half Sriracha (Chinese ketchup) & half "American" ketchup. Since I already had a 2# package of 4 small drumsticks & 4 small thighs, after skinning them, I coated each completely with the sauce (ample for the 8 pieces), and rolled all in Panko bread crumbs. Baked at 350-degrees for about an hour, they were soooo good! Thank you for coming up with this recipe, Sadaf.
It was wayyyyyy too hot for me and I even had to tone it down a lot with more honey and lemon juice. I think that if you love spicy food, you'd love this dish a lot. I like spicy food (not LOVE but like) and I was astonished at how spicy the sauce came out to be. And I omitted the Italian seasoning bc it just seemed out of place for my taste buds. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, spicy; but, really, what did you expect?! :D 'Knowing it would be spicy, maybe too spicy, I just made the sauce & tried it - with & without the italian seasoning. Both are good, but I like the one without the italian seasoning a little better. The one without just has hot as the predominant flavor as compared to spicy with spices. 'With me? :) I'll use this as a dipping sauce for now. What I did: Melted 4t butter, added 1/4t onion powder, 1/2t granulated garlic, 1/4t black pepper ('Think reducing that to lessen heat instead of the siracha would be the way to go), no salt (the sauce is salty enough), 2T siracha & 1T honey. Repeated with same amounts & added 1/4t italian seasoning. 'Glad I tried. :)
I knew from experience the proportion of honey to Sriracha would be too spicy for our family so I started at 1:1, added the other ingredients and tasted. At that point I added more Sriracha to taste, perhaps 1 part honey to 1.5 parts Sriracha. I also used BLSL thighs for better chicken flavor. This is a great example of a recipe that anyone can make to taste. Thank you, Sadaf!
Very good, but pretty spicy.
Sorry but this was too hot for me.
