Honey Sriracha Chicken with Cauliflower Rice
Juicy chicken thighs smothered in the most deliciously spicy sauce packed with sweetness and a whole lot of flavor. All it takes is about 30 minutes to make this easy, juicy, chicken dinner recipe with cauliflower rice.

appetizing. delectable. delish. divine. Is that enough adjectives to make you want to jump straight into the kitchen and make this, asap? GOOD! Because you should.

My very small army of 2 kids and a hubby absolutely, positively, love and adore my Spicy, Sweet and Sticky Chicken Thighs – can’t blame them

Honey Sriracha Chicken

Their second favorite sweet-and-sticky combination is this Honey Sriracha Chicken.

HOW TO MAKE HONEY SRIRACHA CHICKEN

A blend of honey, sriracha chili sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, and garlic makes a splendid combo that keeps our chicken extra tender and succulent.

If time allows, I recommend marinating the chicken in the sauce for about 20 minutes before cooking.

Honey Sriracha sauce

When ready to get started, heat up your skillet and add the chicken thighs to cook for about 8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

In the meantime, you’ll want to prepare the cauliflower rice. If you have never made it before, please know that it is just a two-step process. My favorite of all time is my Coconut Lime Cauliflower Rice. IT IS INCREDIBLE!

HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER RICE

  1. Break up the cauliflower into florets.
  2. Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor and PULSE until cauliflower starts to resemble “rice”.
  3. Add the cauliflower rice to a skillet; season with salt and pepper and cook for a couple minutes, or until tender. That’s it.

* Cooking chicken with the skin ON (and then removing the skin after cooking) helps trap all those tasty, natural juices inside.

    This recipe was fantastic. I had skinless boneless chicken breasts on hand and marinated them for a few hours. Browned the chicken in a cast iron skillet and finished in the oven. I made cauliflower purée as that is more widely eaten in my house. The marinate reduced to a sticky sweet delicious sauce that we poured over the finished meal; hubby raved and kids approved. I just wish there were leftovers.

  2. Sincerely, have stumbled on several Sriracha Honey Chicken recipes lately and have the opportunity to try hands on some myself, but this recipe stands out and the fact that it only takes just 30 mins to cook blows my mind. Thanks for putting this together. Will let you know how it turns out if I finally try I out.

  3. a beauty, yes cauliflower rice, perfect, make chicken thighs regularly but haven’t tried sriracha sauce with it before, so nice tweak for me and I know the rice will be a nice pairing with this, thank you!
