Have you ever cooked with hot sauce? As in create an entire meal based around it?
Typically when we hear the word shriacha sauce, sometimes we automatically think it is fire hot. Really, you can cook with it and play with the heat level. It really makes a great marinate.
Easy recipes like this come together quickly and are perfect for weeknight dinner. Let me show you how simple this recipe is to create. You will love the layers of flavors!
(Rest assured, this really is not super hot. My kids ate it. You can play with the amount of sriracha to reduce the spice. I will give you pointers below.)
- 3 lb chicken thighs (boneless skinless)
- 2 T sriracha sauce, I used Texas Pete Sauce brand (you could only use 1 T if you want to reduce the spice)
- 1 t Texas Pete pepper sauce (we are using the juice)
- 3 T honey (I used an orange blossom honey)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 T olive oil
- 2 T vinegar
- 2 t grated ginger
- 2 t sesame oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- chopped green onions for topping once done
- a pepper or two from the pepper sauce to top each chicken when you plate it
These are the Texas Pete Hot sauce that I used. They are full of flavor!
Place your chicken thighs in a large skillet or casserole dish.
Salt and pepper them.
Mix up the rest of the ingredients for the sauce.
I love the smell of fresh ginger, don’t you?
Pour the marinade over the chicken and pop it in a 400° oven for 45 minutes.
While the chicken is cooking, steam some rice on the stove.
You can also make a salad or another veggie.
When it is done place the chicken up over a bed of steamed rice.
Top with a pepper or two from the pepper sauce and some chopped green onions.
Ladle some of the sauce from the pan over the chicken and rice.
This is just amazing.
If you want to make it less spicy, use half the sriracha sauce and one extra tablespoon of honey.
You could also use this to marinate the chicken for a couple of hours in the fridge and then grill the chicken thighs. That would be amazing too!
