Honey Lime Sriracha Grilled Chicken

Honey Lime Sriracha Grilled Chicken - Triple Chocolate Kitchen

From the end of April until the beginning of October, our grill doesn’t get much rest. We love cookouts with friends or even just grilling up some dinner for the two of us. And one of my favorite dishes is grilled chicken. I really love chicken in general, actually. (Try this OMG Sour Cream Chicken recipe if it’s too rainy or cold for grilling wherever you live.)

I’m always on the hunt for new chicken marinades that are perfect for grilling, and I think I have a new favorite! I mean, look at those awesome grill marks and the beautiful color. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it. I love when chicken gets crisp and charred on the grill. YUM!

Now, if you are a total wuss about heat, don’t worry. I toned things down a little from the recipe I originally pinned (hat top to Handle the Heat). It wasn’t spicy at all when finished. The Sriracha just added another layer of bold flavor. If you are a heat fiend, double the amount of Sriracha in the recipe or even add a few dashes of hot sauce.

No grill? My soul is crying for you! But if it’s not in the budget or you don’t have the space, you could also make this recipe by searing the chicken in a pan and baking to finish in an oven. It’s much better grilled, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

This recipe is also perfect over the campfire! Just let your fire die down to super hot coals, and then grill like normal.

    • Some people call it rooster sauce, so you might have heard it under that name! There’s a rooster on the bottle. It’s a type of hot sauce – on the mild side and slightly sweet and garlicy. You can usually find it in the international food section at the grocery store or near the dressings/ketchup. I think sriracha has a unique taste, so I recommend using it for this recipe if you can find it. But just in case you can’t, you could substitute another type of hot sauce instead.

  1. I’ve never heard of Sriracha in my life but it looks like a nice sauce to try for grilling. I should hunt it down to prepare for summer grilling.
