Honey Sriracha Glaze

Here’s a quick recipe that’ll add a delicious sweet spice to your chicken, pork, or salmon. Honey Sriracha glaze is all of five ingredients and no more than five minutes to make. It’s really simple, yet the flavor makes it seem like so much more. Sweet, slightly spicy, and a little garlicky – it’s so fun to eat.

Honey Sriracha Glaze

Use it as a glaze for baking or grilling, or try it as a dipping sauce for chicken wings and fried chicken tenders. We use cayenne pepper powder in the recipe to add a little extra oomph (the honey really dilutes the Sriracha heat), but feel free to remove (or add!) cayenne to fit your heat tolerance.
