crispy honey sriracha chicken

Honey Sriracha Chicken bites are like tiny little Asian chicken poppers coated in sweet and spicy sauce!

You may not want to order take-out after having a batch of these little chicken pieces because these are incredibly delicious. This sauce is not overly spicy and the sugar and honey balance out the soy sauce wonderfully. You will not even detect any honey in these and there is no huge list of ingredients for the sauce. The sweet ginger garlic seasoning used for this recipe has a blend of sesame seeds, garlic and ginger so if you’re not able to find this particular seasoning blend, no worries just substitute 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 1 tsp of sesame seeds for the seasoning. Add more sriracha sauce to your liking and enjoy!

    Can I use less sriracha sauce if I dont like too spicy?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could but that could jeopardize the taste. The recipe is only calling for 2 1/2 teaspoons along with other ingredients so it shouldn’t be overly spicy but if you can’t tolerate spicy perhaps reduce the sriracha to a teaspoon and a half?
