Honey Sriracha Chicken Thighs

Golden brown chicken thighs in a sweet and sticky honey sriracha sauce; serve with a side of jasmine rice and top with fresh cilantro, green onion and toasted sesame seeds.

You can never have too many chicken thigh recipes. It’s one of the most flavorful cuts of chicken, and economical to boot. Here we’ve pan-seared it to a golden brown with a honey sriracha sauce that’s sweet and savory and salty and spicy, all at the same time. This might just be our favorite chicken thigh recipe yet!

Honey Sriracha Chicken Thighs topped with cilantro and green onion

For whatever reason we’ve always had the hardest time browning chicken. Hot pan, cold pan, low heat or high… our chicken never seems to look as pretty as the pictures. (darn food stylists probably rub the things with motor oil or some shenanigans like that, ha!)

But as we were working on this recipe we unintentionally stumbled upon a fool-proof trick for golden brown pan-fried chicken.

Rub it down with sriracha first.

I assume this works so well because the little bit of sugar in the sriracha sauce helps caramelize the surface of the chicken. But that’s just my working theory, I’m no food scientist.

Short story is, it works. And it’s delicious to boot.

Topped with a handful of fresh cilantro and served with a side of jasmine rice, this chicken becomes the perfect weeknight dinner.

The sauce is the result of Taylor’s brilliance: a little bit of honey and sriracha (but not enough that this dish is what I’d consider to be spicy – feel free to up it if you want to feel the heat) plus garlic, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce. It’s lightly sweet and super flavorful.

We’ve been tempted to cook everything in it lately, from vegetables to tofu, it’s really that good!
