Sriracha Glazed Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa is a healthy grilled chicken dish with a sweet and savory glaze, topped with an easy mango and avocado salsa.
The weather here in Kansas City is FANTASTIC and we’ve been grilling up a storm the past few weeks. I recently starting my third cycle of the 21 Day Fix, which is a clean eating and workout program. I’ve loved it so far, but still struggle a bit with healthy dinners that fit within the plan and are satiating for my husband and son. Having grilling weather has made that a bit easier, because grilled protein just tastes better, you know? Plus, my husband loves anything with sriracha, so that helped this Sriracha Glazed Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa be satisfying for him while still fitting within my 21 Day Fix plan.
This sriracha glazed chicken is quite spicy, although the honey and lime mellow out the glaze. If you are nervous about the spice level, add a bit more honey or lime juice, and less sriracha. You really can’t go wrong with this flavor combo!
It’s pretty obvious that we love and use sriracha a lot in this house. If you’re a sriracha lover too, give these Sriracha Peach Shrimp Skewers a try, or this Sriracha Lime Red Snapper.
