My experiments with Sriracha Sauce
Last week at a friends place, I tasted Sriracha Cauliflower Stir Fry, for the first time. Not having tasted this sriracha sauce before, I was hooked with the sweet, spicy, tangy taste of it.I had made a mental note to try out this sauce in a chicken recipe, I planned to try, the coming week.
Here, I am today, experimenting the Glazed Honey Lime Sriracha Chicken for the first time. From the looks of it & the aroma, emanating from the recipe, I could tell it is going to be a hit at the potluck party today
When you want your protein, but you are not into curries at the moment b’coz of the hot temps outdoors, this is the recipe you must try.Will be perfect for the grill outdoors in summertime too.
Chicken drumsticks or Chicken thighs would go well with this “Rooster sauce” too.Today, I tried with Chicken breasts, either way, it tased great!
