    My husband and I loved the flavor of the sauce. Instead of the dry Sriracha, i just used regular chili pepper seasoning and i substituted honey for agave. Lots of flavor.

    Quick, easy, flavorful dinner. Loved the idea of throwing in some broccoli to sauté at the end. Will definitely make this again.

    GREAT my daughter had two toddler servings. That's good since she is a picky eater. I didn't make it too hot. With side of mac n cheese for her mix veggies for me.

    Yum yum yum. I had to substitute because I didn’t have the dry siracha. I used extra spicy dash instead. Absolutely delicious.

    Outstanding! Would definately make this again. Used 1.5 Tbsp liquid Sriracha and 3/4 tsps soy sauce and NO SALT! The thighs browned perfectly and we added a side of garlic brocoli with red pepper flakes and a small side of sauteed cherry tomatoes in balsamic vinegar, garlic and EVOO to round it out.

    Because I do not have Sriracha, I substituted precisely how Dana Pinkava recommended, and it was AH. MAY. ZING!! Just the right amount of heat, lots of flavour, and the lime really adds a little zing to it. I will be making this again!

    I adjusted the recipe. A bit more acidity with lime juice.It will depend on the type of pan you are using (I use cast iron)A knob of butter is also a good idea. It helps it Carmelize and doesn’t burn as easy.

    Real good, I added ginger and allspice

    I couldn’t find sriracha seasoning, so I improvised and seasoned the chicken with paprika, chili powder and garlic powder. I doubled the marinade minus the lime and it was delicious. Overall, the chicken was tender and juicy and the sauce very flavorful.

    Very good! After I was done with the chicken I threw in some broccoli florets and a little butter and sautéed them for a little veggie side dish.
