Honey Sriracha Chicken Recipe - Cooking with Books

Living on an island where there are no chain stores or delivery of takeout foods, one has to be resourceful.

As an addict to the Asian hot sauce, Sriracha (who isn’t?!) and a supporter of honey bees everywhere, I love this honey sriracha chicken recipe! It is perfect for quick dinners or even weekend dinner parties with friends. The two basic flavors, Sriracha and honey, are close to my heart. Cox’s Honey, extracts the very best high mountain clover, where the honey is perfectly mild and great-tasting, with supreme flavor.

When I’m craving Asian, I tend to cook it myself, and this Honey Sriracha Chicken is my latest creation!

Here’s the deal, and we’ve all heard about it: If bees die, we have no food. If we have no food, we die as well. So maintaining bees happy is Cox’s Honey number one priority and they’re making it happen with an incredibly creative and outstanding Beehive Adoption Program.

Cox’s Honey, a fast growing, family owned, mom and pop shop out of southern Idaho sells pure grade, clover honey.  Cox’s Honey is currently making a concentrated effort to preserve the pesticide-threatened hives, bees and honey for our future generations through it’s unique and innovative adoption program, which I’m excited to be a part of.

“Adopt a Honey Bee” program, where your donation will directly help to support and sustain healthy bee colonies that are vital to pollination and the  ecology.  Your donation will go to purchasing hives, bees, equipment, and organic treatments to help the bees battle Varroa and tracheal mites as well as other diseases affecting the honey bees. Just like in the real world companies sell shares to help raise capital for business development we are selling shares of our hives to help raise capital to continue raising healthy bees. Bees are wonderful creatures performing a vital role in our ecology.   Buying an Annual Hive share is perfect for anyone interested in beekeeping but not able to have hives due to the expense, limited space, or time.

Support honey bees by consuming and using their product, sourced from a company that takes cares of bees! Cooking with honey is not only delicious, but it’s also beneficial to our health. Since my dad kept beehives, I grew up eating not just the honey, but slices of honey comb and bee pollen, too. We consumed honey products for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Make this honey sriracha chicken recipe at home with Cox’s creamed honey, because it tastes heavenly!

Creamed Honey is a controlled form of granulation. Essentially, Cox’s Honey takes liquid honey, accelerates the granulation process, runs it through a mill to beat down all the granules, and packages it. A smooth texture and more robust taste is the result. It also turns white as the granules are crushed. There is absolutely nothing added or taken away, which I love. You can shop for any of their honeys online here.
