HOW TO COOK THESE SWEET SRIRACHA CHICKEN BOWLS

Full recipe can be found in the printable recipe card below! Scroll down! 🙂

  1. Place the chicken into a ziploc bag and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Add in the cornstarch, seal the bag and give it a good shake or two to thoroughly coat the chicken.
  2. Place a large, nonstick sauce pan over medium heat. Add the butter. Once butter is melted and bubbling, add the chicken, shaking any excess cornstarch off. You may need to work in batches.
  3. Cook chicken 2-3 minutes per side, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature between 155-160 degrees F using a meat thermometer
  4. While the chicken is just beginning to cook, prepare the ingredients for the sauce. Stir well.
  5. Once the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 155-160 degrees F, drizzle the sauce over the chicken and stir/toss to fully coat each piece of chicken.
  6. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken has cooked through, reaching 165 degrees F internally. Sauce will thicken as it sits.
  7. Serve over white rice, brown rice, or Cauliflower Rice with steamed broccoli.
  8. Garnish with sesame seeds and freshly chopped chives.

HELPFUL TIPS TO CONSIDER:

  • HEAT FACTOR: This recipe calls for 6 tablespoons of sriracha – which means this recipe, as is, will be pretty hot. Your mouth will feel it! If you like it hot, keep the recipe as is. If you prefer a subtle bit of heat, lower it to 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of sriracha and replace the 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of missing sriracha with honey and soy sauce. You can also omit the cayenne pepper.
  • SODIUM: I used regular, salted butter in this recipe with a little bit of salt added and low-sodium soy sauce. If using regular soy sauce, omit the additional salt added and season to taste when done cooking.
  • RICE: You can easily swap out the white rice for brown rice, quinoa, or Cauliflower Rice.

MEAL PREP ITEM MUST HAVES
