First, let me apologize for the pictures today. The lighting is way off and far too bright and almost washes this wonderful looking chicken completely out. I believe I am pictured doomed when it comes to this recipe. A few weeks ago, I made this chicken and it turned out incredible AND I got a fantastic picture of it. Let me tell you, I was HAPPY! Then..wouldn't you know it...I pull a really dumb move while I'm at my computer and before you know it...the pictures were GONE. Deleted. Never to return. I deleted it straight from my little card from my camera, so there was no way to retrieve it at all. I was bummed...and that's putting it lightly. The one good thing about that disaster... I got to make this dish again!!! YUM! That pretty much sums this dish up! Granted, if you are not a spicy food lover, this will not appeal to you, but if you can handle heat...you gotta try this! I created this recipe last year using bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts, they ended up being like chicken wings, but breasts :) I loved it that way, but this time, I had boneless, skinless breasts and figured, what the heck, it can't hurt to try. I did have to do things just a bit different from the original recipe, but I still think it turned out wonderful!
Grilled Sriracha Glazed Chicken
2-4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
cayenne pepper (optional)
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon honey
Lightly season both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne. Cover and let set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
In a small bowl, melt the butter. Add the Sriracha, lime juice, and honey. (if the mixture thickens up, just zap it in the microwave for a few seconds) Using 2 Tbls of the mixture, brush both sides of the chicken. Return to the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1-2 hours.
Preheat your grill to medium-high. Place chicken on the grill, brush with remaining sauce. Grill for 5-8 minutes. Flip chicken over, brush with sauce; continue grilling for another 5-8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill and ENJOY!
