Sriracha Spiced Bacon

I first saw this recipe on Pinterest  (acknowledgement to The Kitchen Whisperer) and was determined to try it.  Being a bacon lover, this ticks all the boxes – crispy, sweet, spicy – it is divine.  We fell upon it and devoured it in  minutes, fighting over the last little crumbs…

One tip – the drippings in the oven do burn and our kitchen filled up with smoke when I opened the oven door so make sure you have all the doors and windows open.  Or, do what we are planning to do next time – do it in the kettle BBQ – the neighbours will be salivating…

Sriracha Bacon



500g streaky bacon

1 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons  Sriracha Chili sauce (or more if you like it really hot)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon



Preheat oven to 220C.

Combine brown sugar, Sriracha sauce and cinnamon in a bowl

Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminium foil

Place a wire cooling rack on top

Spray the rack with cooking spray

Place the pieces of bacon on top of the rack trying not to overlap

Microwave the spice mixture for 15-20 seconds until it’s spreadable

Spoon or brush the mixture on top of the bacon.

Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and flip the bacon.

Reheat the spice mixture

Spoon or brush the mixture on top of the bacon

Return to the oven and cook for an additional 10minutes.

Remove from the oven, allow to cool 1 minute on the rack and then using cooking tongs, and remove the bacon from the rack

The bacon will crisp up as it cools so leave for a few minutes


Bon Appetit!  🙂

Hot Sticky Thighs

This sounds like food porn but these hot, sticky, extremely delicious thighs are to die for.  Sort of like Buffalo Wings but sweet, they can be whipped up in minutes for a decadent treat.  I tend to use chicken thighs always as I find breast can dry out very quickly.

I also use American style BBQ sauce with a big squeeze of Sriracha chilli paste – you can try any combination – they are all superb…

Three large chicken thigh will give you 12 pieces…  Needless to say I made heaps – they freeze well …  Enjoy!



3 large chicken thighs (or breasts if preferred)

I egg and a tablespoon of water

1 tablespoon of water

3 tablespoons plain flour

1 cup of panko crumbs

Olive oil spray

1 ½ cups of brown sugar

½ a cup of Louisiana Hot Sauce (or your favourite brand)

½ teaspoon of garlic powder

2 tablespoons of water

Ranch Dressing to serve


Cut each thigh into 3 even size pieces and trim off any visible fat

Dust with flour

Mix beaten egg and water together

Dip the thighs in the beaten egg until coated thoroughly

Coat with Panko crumbs pressing them on firmly

Place on baking paper on a flat roasting tray and spray liberally with olive oil spray

Bake in 200c preheated oven for 15 20 minutes until chicken is browned and cooked through – you can turn them over and cook for a further 10 minutes if unsure

In the meantime, in a pot mix together the brown sugar, hot sauce, garlic powder and water

Stir over medium heat until it melts and thickens and comes to the boil

When the chicken pieces are ready, toss them in the sauce coating each pice thoroughly.

Serve with Ranch Dressing


Bon Appetit!  🙂
