Grilled Spicy Sweet Chicken

I've been on a bit of a Sriracha kick again.... which is definitely not a bad thing.  I've been trying to find more and more ways to use it in marinades and in sauces.  Since discovering it over 15 years ago (yep, 15 years...), it has been my absolute favorite condiment.  Only until the last several years, though, have I actually incorporated it so much into my recipes.  Seriously, the only way I used it for a long time, was by itself and only as a condiment.  Boy, oh boy, am I glad those days are behind me.  With out the experimenting, we'd never have gotten to enjoy meals like this :)

Grilled Spicy Sweet Chicken
Adapted from Bon Appetit
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
3 Tablespoons Sriracha
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon mirin
1 1/2 Tablespoons strawberry jelly
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Mix together the Sriracha, vinegar, mirin and strawberry jelly until well combined.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.  Place chicken in resealable plastic bag or shallow dish and pour in the marinade.  Make sure chicken is fully coated.  Seal or cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour (mine sat for 2 hours).

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from marinade and place over direct heat.  Grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.  Enjoy! (served ours with a basic lemon aioli)

Can't remember what kind of mirin I'm supposed to use - Helen?

Sorry, Jenn.

This recipe looks delicious and it might be the one I make for the fam this weekend. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like it. Pinning.

I love cooking with sriracha but I have to be careful because it's too spicy for the kids.

This chicken looks mighty tasty!

I discovered sriracha about two years ago, and I have been hooked. It is an amazing combination of spicy.
