Yes, I like to live dangerously!!
Having purchased a bottle of Sriracha and another of Kimchee sauce, I decided to mix it with Louisiana hot sauce! If you’re wondering if I tried it before I marinated the chicken, I will tell you that all I had to do was lightly sniff it and almost choked in the process!
So I added in fresh lemon and lime juice, chopped some onions, found some bacon and decided to add that in to cut the spice a bit, and baked it on low for about 2 and a half hours. Let me tell you that it did not take the roof off my mouth! Because it cooked on low and for a while, it really gave the chicken a lovely crunchy taste….really good with asparagus, lightly cooked in 1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter with fresh lemon juice……so good!
Can’t wait to go now and have some leftovers…….
Wait till I tell you just how easy and simply absolutely lick-your-plate-deliciousness is my new Bourbon-Sriracha Absolutely Rocking Sauce for meatballs…and just anything else that you’d like a tomato based sauce with…..
1 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup bourbon….I used Jimmy Beam
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
I placed these three ingredients in a stovetop pot and allowed it to simmer for a good ten minutes, while I made simple meatballs, just seasoning them with grated red and jalapeno peppers, salt and a dash of pepper.
If you are using sriracha sauce for the first time, be very careful for “tasting” purposes. This is a very hot sauce so a little bit goes a long way.
After transferring the meatballs to the simmering sauce, I started breading the eggplant and the tomato, chopped the potatoes and using extra virgin olive oil as a base, placed these vegetables to broil on high for approximately 4-5 minutes each side, sprinkling just a dash of kosher salt and pepper on top.
I just have to say that there was no way that I was going to just use ketchup on those baked fries….I used some of the Bourbon-Sriracha sauce on top of the baked fries, on top of the eggplant and with tomato….it is just so absolutely delicious that I could think of using this on just about anything, including meatloaf…and possibly a vegetable lasagna……yum…doesn’t that just sound amazing????
Stay tuned for the next recipe with leftover sauce!!! Could be a dessert……
