• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup hot honey (HEATWAVE)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce (adjust to taste for desired level of spiciness)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil of choice
  • Sesame seeds and chopped green onions, for garnish (optional)


Step 1: In a bowl, whisk together Heatwave Hot Honey, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, minced garlic, grated ginger, salt, and black pepper until well combined. 

Step 2: Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure each piece is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3: In a large skillet, heat the oil of choice over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the marinated chicken pieces to the pan, reserve any excess marinade for later use.

Step 4: Cook the chicken for about 6-8 minutes until fully cooked. 

Step 5: Once the chicken is cooked, pour the reserved marinade into the skillet with the chicken. Allow the sauce to simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens slightly and glazes the chicken.

Step 6: Once the sauce has thickened and coated the chicken evenly, remove the skillet from the heat. Transfer the sweet and spicy chicken to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish, if desired. Enjoy your Sweet and Spicy Chicken with Heatwave Hot Honey!
