Grilled Chicken with Sriracha Butter

Yes, you read the title correctly.... SRIRACHA BUTTER!!!  Of course, when I saw this recipe, I new I was going to try ... heck, I tried it that very evening!!!  I don't think I could have looked at myself in the mirror had I not :)

This is oh, so easy and can be used on just plan old chicken or steak.  There is really no need to even marinated the meat, the butter is just THAT incredibly good.

A little note.. Ponzu, if you have never used it, is a soy sauce with either lemon or lime flavor.  It's DA-BOMB!!!

Ingredients:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons Sriracha
For the butter -
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
2-3 teaspoons Sriracha
1/2 - 1 teaspoon lemon Ponzu

Directions:
Place the chicken in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.  Pour the 2 Tablespoons Sriracha over, cover/seal, and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the butter, Sriracha and Ponzu (adding the Sriracha and Ponzu a little at a time until you get the flavor you like) until well combined.  Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use (remove from fridge about 5-10 minutes before you are ready to serve).

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Place the chicken over direct heat and grill for 7-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3 minutes.  Scoop out a tablespoon (or less) of the butter and place on top of the chicken.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

You ARE on a sriracha kick lately! They should pay you for all of the advertising. :)

The chicken looks extra tasty with that spicy butter.

And to think I'd never heard of Sriracha until I met you, Jenn! Kevin loves it on just about everything. :-)

Big Dude said...

Loks very good Jenn and now that you are on this sriracha kick, will we soon be seeing sriracha jello or pudding or ice cream? :-)

I LOVE ponzu. I've been using the grocery store stuff and it's pretty good and available.

Might I inquire: what exactly is Sriracha? Never heard of it. Can I make it myself or do I have to buy it?

Jenn S said...

mrlibrarian, Srircha is a garlic chili hot sauce and can be found at most grocery stores. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sriracha_sauce

You can also make it, but since I have never made it myself, I do not want to give you a recipe for it. You can do a search on Google and decide which recipe works best for you.
