We’re obsessed with Sriracha – I know…who isn’t? It makes just about anything better…
So this Martha Stewart recipe seemed SO intriguing … Granted, she makes everything look irritatingly delicious, beautiful and easy. Which is, well, irritating. Anyway – her food is great – and you can find the original recipe here: http://www.marthastewart.com/964688/sriracha-glazed-chicken
But I think I made a few edits and changes that are quite spectacular. In my humble opinion. A little extra flavor…a little extra healthy stuff snuck in there…
First off – the big star – these tubes of ginger! Best time saver ever.
Anyway – here we go…
1/2 Cup soy sauce
5 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp sriracha
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp of the ginger in a tube stuff
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp chia seeds
Put 3 lbs of bone in but skinless chicken thighs in baking dish – with the not so pretty side up. Pour marinade over the top and refrigerate for an hour.
Then pull the chicken out of the oven – turn up that heat to 450 – and flip the chicken over to the pretty side.
Put the dish back in the extra hot oven for another 20 minutes – that way the top gets a really yummy crust on the top… so so so good.
Put this over rice – put a couple of spoons of that delicious sriracha marinade on the rice…we could eat this every week. Come to think of it..we sort of do.
