If you like fried chicken (well, who doesn’t!!), this sriracha fried chicken is for you!
So, how do you like your fried chicken?
There is something about fried chicken! It doesn’t matter how often you have one, it doesn’t matter how many varieties you try, you can never say no to a hot, crispy piece of fried chicken.
I came across sriracha sauce for the first time during one of my work travels to the US.
I tried it once, and voila – it was love at first taste!
This hot chilli sauce which originated from the Thai city of Si Racha is now a popular condiment in restaurants across the globe. In fact, it’s become so popular in the US that they have sriracha festivals to celebrate all the great dishes created with this wonderful hot sauce.
I thought that one of these days I am going to come up with a recipe that’ll have both fried chicken and sriracha….. and some more of sriracha. That thought gave birth to this recipe of Sriracha Fried Chicken! And luckily, last week a friend who returned from San Jose gifted us a couple of bottles of sriracha.
Sriracha sauce and chicken married together by frying – this is a match made in heaven!
