Sriracha Coconut Chicken

Location: San Diego, CA

Holy Mackerel!  Did ya’ll miss me?  I broke my almost 5 days a week blog streak there.  Well, I guess it was much needed.  People have been kind of cray in the Real Estate world.  Not fun and very stressful.  No worries though, because I’m all good now.  I ran my own 5k over the weekend, then went to Yoga in the Park, got a manicure, and took my son to the park.  He fell off the ladder, busted his lip, and just wanted to go home to watch Dora the Explorer.  So that’s what we did.  Then we went to Sea World and ended up getting annual passes.  A pretty chill and fun weekend for sure.  I’m sure you’re all wondering though – what did you eat?!?!?!?!  Well, my friends…..fret no more.  Sriracha Coconut Chicken, of course!

This here, is a recipe from our very awesome daycare lady.  It’s very simple and only requires a few ingredients: Chicken Thighs, Coconut OilGarlic Powder (she used Garlic Salt), and Sriracha.

Heat the Coconut oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.  Mix up the Sriracha and Garlic Powder and brush the first half of the Chicken Thighs.

Once all the Coconut Oil has melted, place the Chicken Thighs in the pan, coated side down.

Brush the other side of the Chicken Thighs with the Sriracha mixture and let cook for about 10 minutes.  Flip, then brush the other side with some more of the mixture.  Cook for about another 10 minutes, the flip again.  Let it cook for a couple of minutes or until it’s well done.

And that’s it.  Serve with some rice or pasta, and a side salad.  Quick, simple, healthy, and delicious!  Until next time…..
