Why This Recipe Works

  • These Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken breasts are perfect for any cookout you might be having.
  • They’re so easy to make!
  • The sauce is perfectly balanced. It has just the right amount of sweetness and heat but you could always add a bit more of the hot sauce if you’d like.

Ingredient Notes

See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  • BBQ sauce: Use your favorite brand of bbq sauce. I’m from Texas and I love Texas bbq. One brand of bbq sauce I love is Stubbs (from Austin, TX). Please feel free to use the brand you enjoy using.
  • Sriracha sauce: Adds a delightful kick.
  • Orange juice and honey: These ingredients add great flavor and a wonderful touch of sweetness.
  • Ground mustard: Gives a tangy flavor to the sauce.
  • Orange zest: For flavor. 
  • Butter: I use salted butter.

Expert Tips

  • Use either fresh or frozen and thawed chicken breasts. When thawing chicken breasts, make sure you thaw them in the refrigerator, a microwave, or in a sealed bag submerged in cold water. Chicken should always be cooked immediately after thawing.
  • Leftover chicken wings will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator if well covered.
  • Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken would be perfect served over a bed of rice for dinner, as well. They are so juicy and the glaze is so good, the rice would be great to absorb some of the rich and delicious sauce from the chicken so you don’t miss a drop.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use A Different Cut Of Chicken?

Yes, but the cooking time will be different. If using a boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, cook for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and registers 165°F on a meat thermometer.

    1. Hi Breann, I haven't tried making this in the crockpot so I'm not sure how it would turn out. I would suggest increasing the amount of liquid that goes into the crockpot. If you are going to use the ingredients for the marinade to pour over the chicken in the crockpot, I would add 1/2 to 1 cup of chicken broth. If you make this in your crockpot, I'd love to know how it turns out.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe. This chicken dish is one of my family’s favorite meals. Thank you so much for letting me know you liked it.

  1. I love the flavors in this – spicy sweet orangey yum! I can see why the recipe is so popular.
