Hello new friends! My name is Katalina and I am the creator and blogger behind Peas & Peonies, where you will find me cooking in style. I want to thank my beautiful and talented friend Sabrina for letting me share my recipes with you. I am beyond excited to be a contributor to her blog, as I am a huge fan of her mouth watering recipes. Today I am going to share with you a Sriracha Brown Sugar Chicken recipe that is a huge success with my family every time I make it.
This Sriracha Brown Sugar Chicken is amazing and incredibly easy to make. Also, I love the sweet and savory combo, especially with that hot finish from the Sriracha sauce. I have been lately on a hot sauce kick, I add it to everything, thanks God I am not adding it to coffee, but that may happen soon too! I also love anything made with the heavenly and holly butter and brown sugar combo. The flavor that you get is absolutely divine, a beautiful, subtle caramel like flavor.
Don’t you worry, this Sriracha Brown Sugar Chicken is not overly sweet, sorry to disappoint you, but this is not dessert. Just kidding here, I usually pretend I am good at making funny jokes:) The brown sugar adds just enough sweetness, that compliments nicely the garlicky hot sauce.
The chicken is tender and juicy, with a perfectly crisp top, and since it’s so incredibly easy to make, its fit for a weeknight dinner that will be a success with your family, especially if you add to it one of Sabrina’s sides.
