Sweet and Spicy Baked Honey Sriracha

I have been wanting to do a recipe post for quite some time now! 
My blog is going to be making so changes, so here goes hopefully everything!
My blog will consist of product reviews, recipes and of course I will still include posts about the adventurous life I live with Eric. 
You will see more frequent posts from me!! Aren't you excited? 
***My recipe posts will give food group suggestions!
That being said
Here goes Recipe post number 1! 

Food group menu for the week:
-Creme Brule french toast 
-Ham and cheese sliders
And of course my meal... 

Sweet and *Spicy Baked Honey Sriracha

First of all... SPICY?? That doesn't sound like Savanna. 
I know, believe me.. I have come along way! 

I got this recipe off of pinterest (of course) and the blog it led me to was  http://chefsavvy.com/recipes/sweet-spicy-baked-honey-sriracha-chicken/

I made a few changes to the recipe to fit the taste of my palet. 

The blog stated that the recipe would take less then 30 min.. and it wasn't kidding :) 


*Note this recipe was prepared for 6 people, and I split it into 3 because we currently have 3 families in our food group. Whats food group? here is the link 
  • 4 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup of flour (add more as needed)
  • 2 eggs
  • Panko Bread Crumbs I bought an 8 oz box (where are these in the store? no idea, Thanks to walmart grocery pick up) 
Sauce ingredients ( I just made this x3, and gave everyone their own container of sauce)
  • 1 Tbs Vegetable Oil 
  • 1 Garlic Clove 
  • 3 Tbs Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbs Honey
  • 2 Tbs of sriracha ( yikes!! That is a lot of spice, I reduced mine to 1 Tbs and it was still burning, I felt like I had taken a bite of H*** haha, If you like spice, keep it at 2 Tbs. All power to ya!) 
  • 3 Tbs of water ( I thought it was weird to add water to it because it thinned out the sauce and it was separating, so I added some corn starch and it fixed the problem) 
  • 1/8 tsp crushed pepper flakes ( i didn't measure, just sprinkled, so maybe this is where the real spice came from it
If you had NONE of these ingredients in your pantry this meal would cost you $29.09, and if you are doing food group you could get four meals out of it. That's only about $7.28 a meal

You can always add more Honey to reduce the spice  

  1. Pre-Heat the Oven to 400 degrees
  2. Dice the Chicken- Easy Peasy

3. Start Breading your chicken. Flour, eggs, then panko bread crumbs 

4. Line chicken onto a baking sheet lined with a silicon baking mat if you have one. If you don't have a silicon baking mat you should get one, because they make for extremely easy clean up 

5. Place chicken in Oven for 15 min until fully cooked and lightly brown on the outside 
6. While chicken is cooking work on your sauce, cook in a small sauce pan.
Combine water and cornstarch in a separate bowl. Add oil and garlic to pan, and saute for about a min. Combine rest of ingredients to pan (soy, sriracha, honey, red peppers and the cornstarch water mixture) Once at a boil remove from stovetop, set aside

7. Take chicken out of oven and toss with sauce immediately. I literally put the the chicken in a bowl and tossed in the sauce like you would to a salad. haha and that is it! 

You can serve over rice! 
BTW: it is delicious!! 


All I did was dice the chicken (10-15 min saved), and combined the sauce ingredients..
You will need to Bread the chicken and cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 min as well as heat up the sauce.
