Sweet, Spicy, and Citrus flavors explode in this Pineapple-Sriracha Glazed Chicken!
Summers end is quickly approaching, but I am still holding on tight! The days are still hot and the nights are still warm. There are still fires to be had, s’more to be made, sandals to be warn, and lots more grilling to be doing. Along with all of the other fun summertime activities!
Plus I’m totally dreading the days when I actually have to get my kids fully dressed to go outside. I love the ease of bare feet and shorts. No fuss. Less laundry, so simple.
There is a tree on my run that has already began to turn colors! Have I mentioned that yet? I still just can’t believe it. & then, & then, Starbucks is releasing their pumpkin latte on August 25th this year! (I’m sure you already knew that, because clearly every one is up in arms about it!) But what the whaaaaat! I can feel summer slipping through my fingers.
But not quite yet. Holding on for dear life!
This dinner is soooooo good! I feel like I’m not sure if its more of a summer meal, or a fall/winter meal. The flavors are definitely summery, (to me!), but having to turn your oven on for 45 minutes, well that just screams cold weather. But we’ve had a few chilly nights, and I’ve made a soup and a couple lasagnas and this baked Pineappple-Sriracha Chicken as well. Though you can definitely eat this in the winter AND summer!
This is fantastic. And pretty simple too! My kids ate it without the glaze, because well, the glaze is a bit spicy. But, they had no problem with the chicken sans the sweet and spicy nectar, so don’t fret about that if you have wee ones! The glaze though, ohmygod, I was licking the spoon. It’s sweet, spicy, citrusy, and just so so darn good. I loaded our chicken with it, and even poured a little on my plate for extra dipping!
If you’re not a fan of leg quarters, use chicken breasts! I’ve done that too, and I’ve sliced the chicken into ‘fingers’ and dipped! They all work! The flavor in the rub topped with the thick glaze is just TOO good to pass up! enjoy!
