Sriracha Chicken

Since I’ve made the decision to move to Philadelphia in July of this year and end my 6 year nomadic life style, I’ve slowly started acquiring and stocking up on apartment essentials. Everything that I didn’t get rid of in 2012 has been packed into boxes that have not been touched in years so I’m slightly horrified at the thought of unpacking any of them.

Better to just buy all new apartment gadget and kitchen equipment, are you with me? I’m still shopping for a food processor, but a high speed blender has been ticked off the list, and now Wolf Gourmet has helped me tick the countertop oven off the list. No toaster needed now either.

Wolf Countertop Oven

The Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven can warm, roast, bake, broil and toast. It also has a convection oven feature which provides uniform heat, surrounding and circulating the food, reducing cooking time by up to twenty-five percent.

Best of all the Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven also has an integrated temperature probe which allows you to keep an eye on the set temperature as well as the probe temperature on the LCD display, without even having to open the oven! You never have to skeptical of your meat being cooked properly again!

For my first recipe in the countertop oven I went for a Sriracha chicken. Lately I’ve been seriously craving Asian flavors (though this seems to always be the case for me). I just need ginger + garlic and Sriracha in my life at all time.

And my Russian roots always bring my back to mayonnaise.

ingredients for the Sriracha chicken marinade

For the Sriracha chicken I wanted to first create the perfect marinade. Both my mom and grandmother swear by mayonnaise as the ultimate meat tenderizer and after making baked pork chops and oven roasted chicken dozens of times over the years I wholeheartedly agree with them.

Something about mayonnaise just works to ensure meat and poultry products never dry out and are always moist.

So for the Sriracha chicken marinade I combined mayonnaise with Sriracha, minced ginger and minced garlic. Simple but effective and flavorful.

Mix those up together and rub all over the chicken. For maximum flavor it’s best to use bone in skin on chicken here. I am sure this would work with boneless and skinless chicken breasts and thighs too but if you’re not opposed to bone in skin on products please use them! I had a mix of drumsticks and bone in skin on breasts – almost 4 pounds worth.

When rubbing the marinade all over the chicken make sure to use a knife to separate the skin from the flesh and really rub that marinade under the skin. You can even make a few diagonal cuts in the large breasts themselves to get the marinade in there too.

Season generously with salt and freshly cracked pepper before loading into the Wolf Gourmet countertop oven.

If you’re like me you’ll be obsessively watching the chicken crisp right through the window, right in front of your very own eyes.

And in just 30-45 minutes the Sriracha chicken will be ready to eat! Sprinkle with some cilantro and you are good to go. If you need a sauce to go with your Sriracha chicken whip up my classic Sriracha aioli.

Overall this Sriracha chicken recipe was a hit with my whole family. The chicken ends up super tender with a bit of a kick and the vibrant flavors of garlic and ginger.

Feel free to leave the chicken to marinate for up to 24 hours, or even just 15 minutes will do if you’re short on time.
