Crispy Honey Sriracha Chicken

I’m so in love with this chicken; Crispy Honey Sriracha Chicken is so very easy to fall in love with.

I want to marry it.

It’s honey sriracha chicken-y goodness, and as I type this I’m eating it for breakfast.

Sometimes I have this yearning for good Chinese food. 

The thing is, I can’t stand that fast food Chinese shit. It grosses me out; I have no idea why that is other than I wonder what they put it in. I really don’t want to know. I’m not putting all of it down, mind you, but most of it is deep fried and covered in nasty sauces.

Sooo…nobody believes me when I say I love Chinese food.

I’m very aware of the fact that most of the people in my life are sick of hearing me say “I would love to eat that… if I make it!”. Sorry, y’all. I can’t help it. That being said, I love P.F. Changs – even though their portions have gotten ridiculously tiny and the service isn’t quite as good as it used to be.

It doesn’t matter, because I don’t eat a lot anyway. (Just throwing it out there because I’m constantly being reminded of that by the loves of my life).

Feel free to adjust the amount of Sriracha based on your heat tolerance. I like a lot, as usual.

Where’s the rice you ask? Screw the rice – I went with rice noodles because they’re fun.
