For The Honey Sriracha Sauce
For The Chicken
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
For Garnish
  • chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • sesame seeds
  • lime wedges


  • 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 the vegetable oil in a skillet.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, dried thyme, and dried basil. Add chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until just browned.
  • Transfer the chicken breasts to the baking dish.
  • Pour the honey-sriracha sauce over the chicken breasts, turning the chicken over to cover each chicken breast entirely with the sriracha sauce.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cover and continue to bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on the size/thickness of the chicken. Use an Instant Read Meat Thermometer and pull out the chicken when its internal temperature registers at 165˚F.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and spoon out about 3 tablespoons of the sauce into a small cup. Whisk the cornstarch into the cup and whisk until well combined.
  • Stir the cornstarch slurry back into the baking dish and put the chicken back in the oven; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
  • Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds and serve with lime wedges.


  • Adjust the Heat: Tweak the Sriracha amount for milder or spicier flavors.
  • Alternate Proteins: Swap chicken breasts for chicken thighs, salmon, or shrimp.
  • Make It Ahead: Prepare the sauce earlier, or marinate the chicken in the sauce for a few hours for deeper flavor.
  • Use a Meat Thermometer: Aim for 165˚F internal temperature for perfectly cooked chicken.
  • Meal Prep Friendly: Cook extra to use for salads, sandwiches, or wraps.
  • Gluten-Free Options: Substitute with gluten-free soy sauce or tamari for a gluten-free version.
  • Storage: Store the chicken in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
