Growing up, there was usually a bottle of Heinz 57 sauce in our refrigerator. I love Heinz 57... I could dip just about anything and everything in it. You could find it at almost any restaurant you went to, also. My favorite, even when I was younger, was mixing it with just a little mayo and dipping fries into it. Mmmmmmm.... I can taste it now, actually!! When I moved to Arizona, I noticed that very few (did I mention very few?) restaurants actually carried it. Ok, I could still get it at home, but sometimes you just want something that you can get at home when you go out... am I right? :)
Anyway, I wanted to do a little tribute to my second favorite condiment (Sriracha being number one), so I decided to marinate some chicken in it. I wanted to keep it really simple and bring the true Heinz 57 flavor to the chicken. I took the sauce and added a little honey, garlic, and red pepper flakes to it. Once I was done, I was taking a picture of the bottle in case I wanted to use it here - and lo' and behold I notice a recipe on the back of the bottle for almost the same damn marinade! lol Ok, theirs was just Heinz 57 and honey, but I guess it is true - Great minds really do think alike!!
