This amazing recipe comes to me via my buddy Erin from The Speckled Palate because today is..... Freaky Friday Blog Hop!
Michaela from An Affair from the Heart organizes this event. She gathers a group of bloggers and assigns each of us a blog. We hunt through our assigned blog and find a recipe to share. It's a big secret until the reveal, which is today!
This round I was assigned Erin's blog and I had so much fun checking out her blog and learning more about her.
What strikes me about her blog first (beyond the amazing photographs of all of the delicious food) is Erin's photo. She has the most beautiful welcoming smile and I know if we ever sat down, we'd quickly become fast friends!
Similar to Bowl Me Over, the Speckled Palate her focus is fresh ingredients, easy recipes and simple entertaining. You'll definitely want to check it out because I know there are a ton of recipes that will catch your eye!
When it came time to choose, it was tough! I really had my eye on her Authentic Gumbo Recipe! The roux is dark and complex and it is fabulous. If you're looking for a yummy recipe, check it out!
And then I spied her recipe for Cream Biscuits with White Sausage Gravy. Talk about comfort food, totally my kinda meal!!
So many delicious recipes, I finally decided on Honey Sriracha Chicken Rice Bowls - tender chicken in a sweet spicy sauce. I really felt like it's a recipe that you would enjoy as much as we have!
Honey Sriracha Chicken
What does Sriracha taste like?
Have you never tried it? It's one of my favorite condiments! Sriracha is spicy and tangy with a light garlic flavor. It's not a stretch to say I put it on most everything! Eggs, potatoes, mixed with mayonnaise for a spread, yup! It's delicious!
- chicken breast - you can certainly substitute chicken thighs if that's your meat of preference.
- cornstarch - thickens the sauce while it cooks in the crockpot
- yellow onion and red bell pepper - adds just the right amount of vegetables in this tasty meal.
- honey - the sweet and sticky addition for the sauce!
- Soy sauce, Worcestershire and Sriracha sauce - pantry ingredients to make this amazing sauce.
- garlic and red pepper flakes - for flavor and spice.
Steps to make
- Dice the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, toss with the cornstarch.
- Add the chicken to the slow cooker along with the onion and red bell pepper.
- Make the sauce - Combine the honey, soy sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha sauce, granulated garlic, red pepper flakes and black pepper. Whisk to combine and pour in the slow cooker.
- Set the slow cooker to low and cook for six hours until the chicken is tender.
- Serve with rice and steamed vegetables.
How to serve Sriracha Chicken Recipe
This is also a great recipe for meal prep! Dice the chicken and vegetables on Sunday. Add all of the ingredients for the sauce to a screw top jar and refrigerate until you're ready to make the meal for dinner that night.
Your meal will be ready in a snap!
Leftovers - refrigerate or frozen?
Actually you can do both. Well sealed, leftovers can be refrigerated up to three days or frozen for up to three months.
