I’m a sucker for the charred, caramelized bits that happen when you grill something with sugar. So I went with Grilled Honey Sriracha Chicken 🙂
I made some Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings a few weeks ago for that dear, sweet husband of mine.
The sauce was so good I knew I had to make something else with it.
How to make Grilled Honey Sriracha Chicken
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs is what I used.
But you could certainly use chicken breasts.
The sauce is super simple. Just honey, Sriracha, and some soy sauce.
Whisk it together and it’s done.
We will use it for brushing over the chicken on the grill and as a dipping sauce.
To get the chicken ready for the grill coat with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Then on to a grill over medium high heat for a few minutes per side.
Then comes the BEST part…the sticky honey Sriracha sauce brushed over top.
Those charred parts is exactly what I was going for here.
If you prefer without the charred bits, grill over medium heat and just add a few extra minutes.
Serve this sweet, sticky, and spicy Grilled Honey Sriracha Chicken yumminess with more of the sauce on the side for dipping or just drizzle over top.
Winner winner chicken dinner right here 😉

Grilled Honey Sriracha Chicken
Sweet and spicy chicken grilled to perfection
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2-4 Tbsps Sriracha (more or less depending on spice preference)
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- kosher salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes
In a bowl combine honey, Sriracha, and soy sauce. Whisk together until evenly mixed. Set aside.
Put the chicken in a gallon size plastic bag, add the olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Massage the bag until evenly mixed.
Preheat the grill over medium high heat. Place the chicken on the grill for 3 minutes, flip and brush with honey Sriracha mixture.
Flip again after 3 minutes and brush that side with the honey Sriracha mixture. Flip and brush again after 2 more minutes, and once more flip and brush after 2 minutes.
Serve with the remaining honey Sriracha sauce on the side for dipping.
