Ingredients Used To Make Honey Sriracha Sauce

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • Butter or oil (optional for creamier sauce)
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • Lemon Juice 1/2 teaspoon

How To Make Honey Sriracha Sauce?

This sauce is super easy to make. First, mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and set it over medium-high heat.

Whisk Together All The Ingredients In A Saucepan

In a medium saucepan, whisk together all ingredients. Ingredients include honey, sriracha sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger. Optionally, add a tablespoon of butter or oil for a creamier sauce. Whisking should be done until all the ingredients are well combined.

Put The Sauce Pan On Medium Heat

Once you have brought the saucepan to a boil, continue cooking it at a simmer for about 10 minutes. This will help the sauce thicken and become more flavorful. Occasionally stirring to prevent any burning or sticking.

Let The Sauce Cool

Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool. The sauce will thicken up more as it cools. Once it has cooled, you can store it in a plastic container or glass jar in the fridge for later use.

Transfer It To The Dish And Serve!

Once ready to use the honey sriracha sauce, pour it over your dish or use it as a dipping sauce. This spicy and sweet sriracha sauce is delicious on grilled chicken, salads, or even as a topping for burgers or sandwiches.

Ways To Use Honey Sriracha Sauce

Let's see a few ways you can serve this sauce recipe.

Brush Over Grilled Chicken Thighs

Grilled chicken is a delicious and healthy meal that can be spiced with a bit of honey sriracha sauce. To brush the sauce over grilled chicken:

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Cut your chicken breasts into thin strips.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the honey sriracha sauce ingredients.
  • Grill the chicken strips for about 4 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  • Brush the honey sriracha sauce over the grilled chicken strips.
  • Serve honey sriracha sauce grilled chicken when hot.

Brush And Baste The Baked Chicken

To start, brush or baste your chicken pieces with a little honey sriracha sauce on each side. This will help lock in moisture and add tons of delicious flavor. Then, lay the chicken pieces in your baking dish and place them in the oven at a moderate temperature of around 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

As the chicken bakes, you can periodically brush or baste it with additional honey sriracha sauce to keep it nice and juicy. Be sure to check on the chicken intermittently while it cooks so you can adjust the timing as necessary. When done, you'll have perfectly tender, crispy baked chicken packed with robust flavors thanks to the delicious combination of honey sriracha sauce.

Marinate Chicken In Sriracha Sauce

Marinating chicken in Sriracha sauce before cooking will add a delicious and spicy kick to your dish. Mix the honey sriracha sauce with a bowl of soy sauce, lime juice, and garlic. Marinate the meat for about 30 minutes before cooking as desired. A safe and right marination technique is used to ensure proper cooking afterward.

Honey Sriracha Dipping Sauce

Honey Sriracha Sauce is the perfect dipping sauce for chicken fingers. With its spicy and slightly sweet flavors, this versatile sauce provides a tasty coating that perfectly complements juicy, tender chicken.

Moreover, the saucy texture helps keep the crispy chicken fingers deliciously crispy and moist. So whether you dip your chicken fingers right into the bowl or use it as a marinade, Honey Sriracha Sauce will become your new favorite dipping sauce!

Toss With Cooked Chicken Wings

The spicy sweetness of the sauce works perfectly to balance the savory flavor of the meat. At the same time, its rich texture provides texture and subtle richness. Marinate the chicken wings in Honey Sriracha Sauce for several hours, or coat them for a lighter taste before cooking. 

Once your wings are ready, serve them hot off the grill or coated in your favorite dipping sauce. 

No matter how you use it with different recipes, Honey Sriracha Sauce will take your cooked chicken wings to the next level.
