I love sriracha and this honey sriracha chicken recipe always leaves my mouth watering.

Usually, I serve it with plain boiled rice or butter rice but it’s also great in tacos, pastas, sandwiches and so much more.

If you are making this for kids, definitely lower the amount of sriracha sauce.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Recipe

Tips for Honey Sriracha Chicken Recipe:

  • Use a non-stick pan to prevent the chicken and sauce from sticking and burning.
  • Adjust the amount of sriracha sauce, based on your preference.
  • I used small chicken breast cubes in this recipe but you can also make sriracha chicken breast, thighs, wings, legs, bites, tenders.
  • To make sriracha chicken stir fry, add frozen stir fry vegetables near the end and cook for a few minutes until the vegetables are cooked and crisp and not soggy.
  • To make honey lime sriracha chicken, replace lemon juice with lemon juice. You can even add 1 tsp lemon zest to take it over the top.
  • Use hard or soft tacos and add your favorite taco toppings to make sriracha chicken tacos.
  • To make a healthier meal, make sriracha chicken lettuce wraps.
  • Use leftover sriracha chicken in a burger or sandwich for lunches.
  • You can garnish with toasted sesame seeds to give it a little crunch or you can garnish with cilantro or green onions/scallions.
