These Honey Sriracha Roast Potatoes are perfectly moist and soft on the inside, with a sweet and spicy sriracha sauce that really bumps them to the next level.

Honey Sriracha Potatoes

I can’t get enough of potatoes. I’ll eat them in just about any variation. Some of my favorites are crispy roast potatoes and twice baked potatoes, but I have a particular sweet spot for these honey sriracha potatoes.

It’s hard to express how delicious this honey sriracha sauce is. I serve it on so many things – from chicken wings and brussels sprouts to pan fried salmon. It’s perfectly sticky. Slightly spicy, and the honey adds just the right sweetness.

The sriracha must make this sauce super spicy, right? Sriracha is super spicy, after all. But when you combine it with the honey and butter in this recipe, the heat level plummets and what you get is a mild spiciness. I promise. It’s not too spicy. But it does have all the flavor.

What is Sriracha?

Sriracha

Sriracha is a popular hot sauce that originated in Thailand and has gained worldwide recognition for its distinctive flavor and spiciness.

Sriracha is made primarily from red chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt, resulting in a delicious combination of heat, tanginess, sweetness, and umami. The sauce has a thick consistency and a vibrant red color. It is gluten-free and vegan.

It is known for its versatility, as it can be used as a condiment, a dipping sauce, or as an ingredient to add a kick to various dishes.

Ingredients You’ll Need

The great thing about this amazing recipe is that most of the ingredients are pantry items.

  • Potatoes – You can make them whatever size or type you want. I typically use baby potatoes and cut them in half. If you’re using a large russet potato, you can cut it into small or large cubes. It’s up to you.
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper – to season the potatoes.
  • Sauce ingredients – Sriracha, honey, butter, soy sauce and lemon juice.

How to Make Sriracha Potatoes

Cut the Potatoes

Start by cubing the potatoes. You can make them whatever size you want. I typically use baby potatoes and cut them in half. If you’re using a large russet potato, you can cut it into small or large cubes. It’s up to you.

The size you make the potatoes will affect the amount of time they take to cook, but it won’t be a problem to just leave them in a bit longer if you want larger pieces.

Bake the Potatoes

Place the potatoes in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt and pepper. They only need a small amount of oil. Too much will have them swimming, which will hamper them from getting crispy.

Pour the potatoes into a baking dish and cover it with tin foil. Bake at 400° F (204C) for 50-60 minutes, or until they can easily be pierced with a fork. If you want the potatoes to be crispier, remove the foil after 30 minutes.

Make the Sauce

The most important ingredient in this sauce is the Sriracha. I prefer Huy Fung Foods Sriracha with the rooster on the bottle. Another brand that’s good is Flying Goose Sriracha with the goose on the bottle.

Honey Sriracha Sauce

You also want to select a good quality honey. Preferably one that is fresh and in liquid form. Honey can get crystallized over time, which won’t work as well for this sauce.

So, the ingredients you need for this recipe are:

  • Sriracha
  • Honey
  • Butter (salted)
  • Soy sauce
  • Lemon juice

This sauce is super easy to make. Just combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and set it over medium high heat.

Stir it all together and let it bubble for a minute before lowering the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced slightly and thickened up a bit.

You can use the sauce right away, or store it for later. I like to brush it on baked or grilled chicken.

Coat the Potatoes

The final step is to coat the potatoes in the sauce.

When the potatoes are done, take them out of the oven and remove the foil.

Pour half the sauce into the dish with the potatoes. Stir it until all the potatoes are coated. Add more sauce until the potatoes are all nicely coated. You can reserve the rest of the sauce for dipping, if you want.

Put the baking dish back in the oven for 5 minutes to get everything nice and bubbly. This helps to adhere the sauce to the potatoes and makes them deliciously sticky.

Serve as a side dish or appetizer.

What to Serve With Honey Sriracha Potatoes

These potatoes make a great side dish for a Pork Roast or Whole Chicken. Either of those can be made in the Instant Pot in the same amount of time as the potatoes, so you can get the full meal prepared in just over an hour.

You might also serve these potatoes with bacon-wrapped pork chops, these delicious marinated chicken thighs, or a tri-tip steak.

Tips and Notes

  • The size you make the potatoes will affect the amount of time they take to cook, but it won’t be a problem to just leave them in a bit longer if you want larger pieces.
  • You only need a small amount of oil. Too much will have them swimming, which will hamper them from getting crispy.
  • Reserve some of the sauce for dipping.

    The potatoes are perfectly roasted and I could LIVE in this easy honey sriracha sauce, but it’s so good on potatoes. Served with pork loin and a bit of grilled pineapple on the side. Perfection!

    Honey sriracha??? OMG….. why have I never thought of this combination before? And I always have these 2 things in my pantry readily available. What a great idea doing that with the potatoes too. So trying this for dinner tonight!

  3. Linda C Baynard says:

    I love the idea of spicy with sweet, however, your recipe is a bit confusing.
    You say use parchment paper to roast, then you say place in dish to roast. SO WHAT IS IT????
    Confusing!! Please clarify the baking method. Flat tray or dish?

    • Laura Lynch says:

      You can cook them either way, but the recipe should say to cook them in a baking dish. I’ve clarified that in the recipe.
