A simple chicken recipe you won’t be able to get enough of. Marinate the bird overnight or in the morning and enjoy a sweet and spicy sriracha soy chicken dinner that night.
Honey Soy Sriracha Spatchcock Chicken is a type of roasted chicken where the whole chicken is butterflied, backbones removed then marinated in a sauce made with garlic, soy sauce, Sriracha and honey. So what is the difference if I roast it without preparing it like such? Well there are many benefits in preparing it like this, first it cooks faster as the thickness is lesser, it absorbs more flavours as you can easily marinate the chicken from the inside, the skin is crispier as the surface area is larger and it’s on one side plus it will be juicer since the time to cook is reduced making it moist and less prone to drying out.
Before I used to roast chicken as a whole but after making this I will not go back, matching this with a perfect blend of marinade it’s a chicken that surely better than finger licking good. Match this dish with something creamy to have a perfect combination, salad like coleslaw or anything dressed with ranch plus mashed potatoes are the best with this.

Hi I am Raymund a Filipino living in New Zealand, I’m not a cook nor a chef but I love cooking and it is my passion. My real job is an IT Professional whose devotion is to develop applications (I have a Software Development blog for those who might be interested), my brain is abused at work on a daily basis so cooking at the end of the day acts as my therapy for stress release. I have been cooking since I was 7 years old and since then almost every day I prepare our dinner and weekend meals, I usually try to cook dishes that we had tried and ordered in different restaurants that’s why you will see a lot of varieties at my blog Ang Sarap (angsarap.net). I learned cooking mostly by observing my Aunt who cooks for us when I was younger, I learned to bake by assisting my Mom during my younger years and for the native dishes I learned it from my Grandmother.My other passion is photography which explains the photos you see here and travelling which explains the variety of dishes and reviews of restaurants from all over the world.
