Recipe: Baked Chicken in Honey and Sriracha

9:44 PM 24 Comments A+ a-

By the time I hit 30, I started becoming more and more health conscious. As much as possible I tried to cook food for my family that doesn't require much frying. So I checked different recipes about baking chicken. Not only that it's the kids' favorite but I can also cook it without adding more oil. I posted photos of this weeks ago at my FB account during my first try. Though it tasted good, it wasn't perfect or should I say "Pinterest/Instagram worthy." I tried it again, this time using Sriracha hot sauce, and it looked the way I saw it on the recipe.

Baked Chicken Wings in Honey and Sriracha

Here's a healthy chicken recipe that you would definitely love. Husband kept asking for this every week. This baked chicken is not just great for your usual ulam but also if you have guests coming in for a visit.


The ingredients for the recipe are:
  • 8 to 10 pieces of chicken wings, cut in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
For the sauce (no, not dip)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha (we bought this at SnR)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
Now, it's time to cook!
  1. Prepare the chicken in a bowl. Mix it together with salt, pepper, and minced garlic. Set it aside.
  2. Open the oven and heat it up for 15 mins. The maximum heat that our stove has is only 220 C, so I just use that for the temperature.
  3. While doing so, prepare your chicken. I cut it in half because it cooks better and easier to eat. Cover your baking pan with aluminum foil (I learned this the hard way, you will thank me for that later) before placing the rack on top. Arrange your chicken on top of the rack like so:
    I only have our turbo broiler's rack to use
  4. When your oven is ready, place the chicken inside for 15 minutes. 
  5. While waiting, mix all the ingredients needed for the sauce. You will also need your kitchen brush for basting the meat.
  6. After 15 minutes, get the chicken from the oven and baste it with the mixed honey-Sriracha sauce.Spread it evenly then put it back again in the oven for 10 minutes. Do the same procedure for the other side. So that's 10 minutes each side.
  7. Baste both sides again for the last time with the sauce. If your oven has a top burner (is that what you call it?) you can use that to give it a grilled-chicken kick. Again, 10 minutes for each side.

The finished baked chicken, posted above, doesn't have any kind of filter. I only put a frame on my Instagram account to make it more, umm, IG-ish? lol. Now why do you have to put a foil at the baking pan?

After enjoying your meal, you surely don't want to end up scrubbing this right? 

This goes well with blue cheese dip or a homemade pesto (sour cream, garlic, salt and lemon) but it's already good on its own. There are also other ingredients that you can substitute if you don't have it in your pantry.
  • Sriracha - UFC hot and spicy variant
  • Olive oil - butter (the original recipe calls for butter but for healthier option I prefer olive oil)
Let me know if you would try it and see how it goes. It'll definitely be a hit I assure you.  :)

yes you may. but i think there would be a difference on how juicy the chicken would be. Usually turbo broiler dries out the chicken (based on our experience) so it would be ideal to cover it in foil in case you would use it instead of oven. =)
