Rosemary-Sriracha Chicken




It's Friday! Time for another Your Recipe-My Kitchen post.

This is another "Pinned it and Did it" recipe. 

I pinned a recipe for Rosemary-Sriracha Chicken Thighs a while back because I thought - hmmm what an interesting combination.  I mean, I love both of those flavors but could they really be good together?  SO of course one day I was looking through the fridge and pantry and didn't know what to make and I remembered this recipe and thought - hey why not?  I didn't have chicken thighs on hand but I did have some drumsticks and since I had the rest of the ingredients I went with it.  This recipe is from All Day I Dream About Food (I must admit - when I saw the name of this blog I was jealous because that would have been the perfect name for mine.  Because, well all day I DO dream about food.)  Anyway - back to the recipe...  LOVED IT!  It was easy and it was tasty and it had a bit of a kick - I would definitely make this one again.  You should too...enjoy!!

recipe adapted from All Day I Dream About Food
What You Need:
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp of fresh rosemary, chopped
1-2 tbsp Sriracha
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 to 5 large bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or drumsticks

What You Do:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, Sriracha, garlic, salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag and massage it a bit, making sure to coat all the chicken. Place chicken in refrigerator and let marinate for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 375F. Arrange chicken in a single layer in a baking dish or broiler pan. Spread any remaining marinade over the chicken.  Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Then broil on high for a few minutes, until skin is crispy and golden brown.  



Not charred like this one:

it still tasted good though

I served this with a Cous Cous and vegetable mixture and some slow cooked leeks.

Linking up to these happening parties!

  5. I like how the coating caramelized on the chicken. It might be a good sauce for grilling as well.

  9. This sounds so yum! I wonder if I could use skinless chicken breasts with similar results? I'll have to give it a try.
