This chicken recipe is not the original sweet and spicy honey Sriracha sauce recipe, it’s less sweet, but it’s spicy, garlicky and very delicious. I love the original recipe as well, but on the weekdays we are eating low-carb, so I tried to transform it to be more appropriate for us. So we get this not too sweet but flavourful marinated chicken recipe which I served with zoodles.

My sauce/marinade was made with hot Asian Sriracha sauce, garlic powder, soy sauce and brown sugar. In a medium size bowl mix together the sauce ingredients, then add the bite-size chicken breast cubes, coat them well with the marinade and place into the refrigerator for half an hour. In a large skillet sear the marinated chicken, while the meat is cooking prepare the zucchini noodles, when ready serve the saucy chicken over the cooked zucchini noodles and season the dish with sesame seeds.

You can made the chicken sweeter or hotter, your choice. I chose to prepare the traditional honey Sriracha chicken less sweet, but more spicy. I didn’t add honey to the marinade, just simply replaced it with brown sugar. So my sauce wasn’t as sweet as the original one, but for us it was just perfectly good.

This dinner recipe is simple, quick and easy: this spicy chicken is cooked in less than 30 minutes and the zoodles are ready in 5 minutes, plus allow at least 30 minutes (up to 3 hours) to marinate the chicken breast. Enjoy my not too sticky and no too sweet, but perfectly spicy and moderately hot chicken dinner!
