Ingredients

FOR THE HONEY SRIRACHA SAUCE

FOR THE CHICKEN

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 (1 pound total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

FOR GARNISH

  • chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • sesame seeds
  • lime wedges

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Combine sriracha sauce, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, lime juice, and garlic in a small mixing bowl; whisk until thoroughly incorporated and set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, dried thyme, and dried basil.
  • Add chicken breasts to the hot skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until just browned.
  • Transfer chicken breasts to previously prepared baking dish.
  • Pour prepared honey-sriracha sauce over the chicken breasts, turning chicken over so to cover each chicken breast entirely.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove cover and continue to bake for 15 minutes more, or until chicken is cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on the size/thickness of the chicken.
  • Remove chicken from oven and spoon out about 3 tablespoons of the sauce into a small cup. Whisk in the cornstarch; whisk until well combined.
  • Stir the cornstarch slurry back into the baking dish and put chicken back in the oven; cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Spoon sauce over the chicken.
  • Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds.
  • Serve with lime wedges.
