Hoisin Sriracha Marinated Chicken

I love the sweet savory flavor of Hoisin Sauce and the savage garlic and chili flavor of the ever popular Sriacha. One day I planned to grill some chicken thighs but I didn’t really feel like cooking. It was hot and I was feeling a little lethargic. I mixed these two condiments together to get a brilliant little marinade for chicken.


2 pounds skinless chicken thighs or boneless and skinless chicken thighs

1/4 cup or more Hoisin Sauce

1/4 cup or more Sriracha

In a bowl combine Hoisin and Sriracha and whisk together. Pour mixture over chicken thighs in a dish and marinate for 20 minutes to 1 hour. I use large zip lock bags for marinating; it just works better. Prepare a fire using charcoal or gas and grill over low to medium heat.

Tip: When grilling meat with a high sugar content; be mindful that high heat will burn the sugar quite easily. Grill over low to medium paying close attention.

We want a little charring of the meat as in the picture above. This is one of the easiest and tastiest dishes I have come up with, everybody loves this. Surprisingly the Sriracha doesn’t make this dish very spicy at all. You can control the heat by simply adding more Sriracha.
