Prep Time: 15 minutes
Crock-Pot Time: 4 hours on low heat and 2 hours on high heat
1½ pounds chicken breasts, cut each breast into quarters. (boneless skinless)
1 cup onions, diced
½ cup Sriracha sauce
⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons cloves garlic, minced
A little salt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional) for garnish
1. Place chicken in crock-pot.
2. Add onions to a medium bowl. Stir in Sriracha, honey, lime juice, water, garlic, and a little salt. Mix well. Pour over chicken.
3. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours and 2 hours on high heat or until chicken shreds easily with a fork. Once cooked, using a slotted spoon, remove chicken to a plate. Cool enough to handle and shred with fingers or 2 forks. Place shredded chicken back in sauce and mix well.
4. This recipe freezes great. Pack the leftovers in individual containers and freeze them for future, last-minute meals.
Makes 6 servings. Each serving about ¾ cup
Sriracha sauce is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. It is named after the coastal city of Si Racha in Eastern Thailand. It may have been first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants
Most supermarkets sell Sriracha sauce in the Asian or International section.
You can serve this chicken over brown rice or steamed cabbage. It works wonders stuff into a sweet potato or baked potato. In addition, try it served over a large main course salad or use it in lettuce wraps. The possibilities are endless! Be sure to include the delicious sauce with whatever way you choose to serve it.
I like to freeze the leftovers in individual containers for future meals.
