Sriracha is, hands down, our favorite condiment. It goes well on just about any food, whether it's from an Asian cuisine or even American cuisine. It's a staple for our eggs at breakfast and on our fried rice at dinner.
Regina from Leelalicious has pretty much the same view. She loves throwing it on top of everything and wrote on her blog, "[Sriracha is] amaahhhzing and makes cooking so easy. ... It’s because Sriracha is made of chili, garlic, salt, vinegar and sugar (nothing else is listed on the ingredients list on my bottle). All of which impart amazing flavor into the chicken as simmers away in the slow cooker.
"Your house will smell amazing too!"
Here's how you can make it for yourself.
Chop 1 onion, then toss it, as well as 2 pounds of chicken breast, into your slow cooker. This should be 4-5 breasts.
In a separate bowl, mix together ½ sup Sriracha, ¼ cup honey, and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Pour this on top of the onion and chicken in your slow cooker and toss the meat to coat well.
Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on High, or 6-8 hours on Low.
When the time is up, move the chicken breasts to a serving plate and shred with two forks. You can pour over whatever cooking sauce remains, depending on how spicy you want your meal.
(You can also add more sriracha, if that's up your alley.)
Regina made her batch of 5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Sriracha Chicken to make into tacos, so she suggested serving it with avocado and cilantro, but you can also serve this dish over rice.
Just be sure to enjoy!
