These two flavors together are the perfect accompaniment to chicken. We use it as a glaze on chicken drumsticks and chicken wings. I even make pulled chicken sandwiches with it. Anywhere that you would use BBQ sauce is a candidate.
It’s super simple to make the this honey sriracha sauce. You need just five ingredients that you likely already have on hand. It takes about 5 minutes on the stove top.
Ingredients Needed to Make Honey Sriracha 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.
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:
- Butter (salted)
- Soy sauce
- Lemon juice
How to Make It
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. It’s great on potatoes as well, try these honey sriracha roasted potatoes.
If storing it for later, you may have to heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave to make it liquid again. The honey can stiffen up in the refrigerator.
