Orange Sriracha Chicken Recipe
I usually make food with little sauce or sauces on the lighter sauce because my husband, being the health nut that he is, complains. Today I went bold and created this delicious Orange Sriracha Chicken Recipe behind his back. It has lot’s of flavor inside the creamy sauce and it’s made in 20 minutes or less, making it perfect the weeknight dinner.
I made this dish with chicken because that’s what I currently had at home but you can certainly make it with shrimp, pork or beef. As you can see, the star of this dish is the awesome creamy sauce. It’s not hot or super spicy but it holds strong flavors with the use of orange, vinegar and Sriracha.
Some people love frying their chicken or shrimp before adding the sauce but I am fine with sautéing it instead. The flavor is a not a whole different, it has less calories and also less dirty dishes to clean up.
You can serve this Orange Sriracha Chicken Recipe with rice, noodles or greens. You can also add some steamed broccoli, cauliflower or yummy crunchy veggies to serve along.
To be honest, although this dish tastes amazing, it’s not very kid friendly, my daughters are not fans of this kind of spices. If your kids are a tad more open minded than mine, then have them try it out.
You can also make this Orange Sriracha Chicken Recipe if you’re entertaining guests and family. It’s easy to make and elegant enough for company. It’s something different and exotic.
Now that my dinner is ready I will definitely use my free time to check out my local thrift stores for cute asian themed items. I love making different kinds of cuisines and would love to serve them with whimsical and different dishes.
I hope you can prepare this Orange Sriracha Chicken Recipe at home. If you do, please come back and let me know how it came out.
