Baked firecracker chicken


Baked Firecracker Chicken 800 9416


1/2 cup hot/chili sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot or Sriracha)

1/2 cup brown sugar or honey

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic, grated

1 pinch red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon oil

1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts

salt and pepper to taste


Heat the hot sauce, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and chili pepper flakes in a small sauce pan until the sugar has melted into the sauce.

Heat the oil in a large oven safe skillet over medium-high heat, season the chicken with the salt and pepper, add to the pan and brown, about 3-5 minutes per side.

Transfer to a preheated 400F/200C oven and bake until the chicken is cooked, about 10-15 minutes, basting with the sauce every 5 minutes.

Enjoy with the remaining sauce!
