Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken Bites
This is as easy as browning cubes of boneless, skinless chicken breast in a hot pan and tossing in a 4 ingredient glaze. The glaze boils up almost immediately and coats the chicken with glorious stickiness as it bubbles and thickens and darkens to an almost mahogany colour.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 1/2 cup mild honey
- 2 tablespoons sriracha
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 garlic clove minced or pressed
- 1/2- inch section of fresh ginger root or 1/2 teaspoon dried ground ginger, grated
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- spray olive oil
- minced chives
Whisk together the honey, sriracha, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and set aside.
Cut the chicken breast into 1/2-inch wide strips, then turn 90 degrees and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch cubes.
Place a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Spray with olive oil. Add the chicken to the pan in a single layer and do not stir it for 30 seconds. Stir fry the chicken until opaque all the way through, about 7 minutes. Pour in the prepared sauce and raise the heat to high, tossing the chicken in the sauce. Continue to cook and toss (using either the pan or a spatula to toss) the chicken until the sauce is bubbly and thick and darkened, about 3 minutes. Transfer the sticky chicken bites to a bowl and garnish with minced chives.
