Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken is mouthwatering! This sweet and sticky sauce is just bursting with tons of flavor!
Honey and sriracha is a perfect balance of flavors. These grilled chicken thighs are super moist and tender. Perfect for summertime grilling, I love serving it with coconut rice and a side of veggies.
The honey in the marinade helps get that sticky char on the chicken thighs that makes it so extra yummy!. I prefer to marinade the thighs overnight so the flavors soak into the chicken.
If you like extra sauce to drizzle over your chicken like I do. Make a double batch of the sauce, and simmer half of it in a small sauce pan on medium heat until thickened.
Toss the thighs in the heavenly marinade well and marinade for 24 hours for optimal flavor. I usually give it another toss after about 12 hours or so.
I prefer to use boneless skinless chicken thighs but you could use breasts if you would like.
I love grilling in the summer and all the delicious sides to go with it. here are a few of my favorites!
