Honey Sriracha Grilled Chicken
This chicken is sweet, smoky and a little spicy. Using chicken thighs will be a sure way for you to have moist chicken that has great flavor! While the grill is preheating, the sauce comes together in a few minutes on the stove. If you’d like, you can cook the chicken on the stove as well using an indoor grill pan or a large skillet. Whether cooking on the grill or stove, it is best to take the chicken out of the fridge 15-30 minutes before you cook it.
