Sriracha Glazed Chicken w/ Onions (inspired by a Cooking Light, 2005 recipe)

4 Servings, < 350 calories per serving!


4 Servings of Brown Rice, cooked without salt or fat

3 Tablespoons hoisin sauce

1 Tablespoon ketchup

1 1/4 Tablespoons Sriracha

1 1/2 Tablespoons canola oil

1 thinly sliced onion

1 Tablespoon bottled minced fresh ginger

1 Tablespoon bottled minced garlic

3/4 teaspoon curry powder

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch-thick slices


1.  Prepare rice according to directions on the box without using salt or fat.

2.  While the rice cooks, combine Hoisin, ketchup, and Sriracha in a small bowl.

3.  Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onion; sauté 3 minutes or until tender.

4.  Add ginger, garlic, curry powder, and chicken breast.  Sauté 6-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.

5.  Stir in hoisin mixture, cook for one minute.  Serve over rice.

I sliced the onion in our food processor which saved so much time! It also allowed the onions to be uniform size and thickness which prevents burning.

Simple sauce. You can double it if you'd like to set some aside to put on each individual dish.

This chicken was so easy to make that I even had some time to sit down with Stella! She is rockin' her new "buff" my Mom gave her. She's ready for Survivor 50!

This recipe turned out fantastic.  It passed the test of not only Dave and my Mom, but my Dad who is the pickiest of us all!  If you don’t own any Sriracha yet, it is definitely something you want to pick up.  Sriracha is a nice change from your normalTabascoor Frank’s hot sauce, with more flavor and heat than both.  You can use it on anything from chicken like this, to sushi, and even on eggs!
