Sweet and Spicy go hand in hand in our household. This maple sriracha chicken is incredibly tasty! Its an amazing balance of sweet and tang with a gradual burst of heat.

Baking Chicken Legs

Baked chicken is one of the easiest meals to make. It honestly requires no work at all besides cleaning and seasoning.

One thing to note, this chicken is lightly seasoned then coated in a seasoned flour. This is to ensure the meat and coating both have an even amount of flavor. Once you add the maple sriracha glaze to the you have a well flavored chicken.

Maple Sriracha Glaze

The maple glaze is simple due to the chicken being well seasoned already. The natural oils from the fresh Thyme and Rosemary marry well with the maple and sriracha.

Now, adjusting the flavor of the sauce is completely by choice. If you want more heat, add it and vice versa.

Also note this sauce is good on vegetables as well so please don’t limit this to just chicken. I have brushed this on roasted carrots and asparagus and it was to die for.

I’d love to hear from you!
