Considering that my Sriracha Buffalo Wings recipe is one of my older recipes on the blog, and considering how many roast chicken recipes I've already featured, I'm surprised I hadn't made the leap to this Sriracha Buffalo Roast Chicken recipe sooner.
I mean, I dip chicken in Sriracha all the time, but using it as a marinade is different. I used half a cup of Sriracha for a 5-lb chicken; obviously, you'll want to use less if you can't handle the heat. But as the Sriracha is mixed with butter and vinegar and sugar, and will mingle with the chicken juices as it cooks, the chicken actually won't be very hot, if at all, after it's done.
Like traditional Buffalo wings, I served the chicken with celery and carrot sticks and ranch dressing, although Blue Cheese Dressing is preferred. I also experimented with a Jicama Slaw with Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette, but that recipe's for another post.
Sriracha Buffalo Roast Chicken
For a 5-lb chicken, you'll need:
5 tsp salt
2 tblsp butter
1/2 cup Huy Fong Foods, Inc. Sriracha
1 tblsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp sugar
Wash the chicken thoroughly inside and out and let drain. Measure out 1 tsp of salt per pound of chicken. Salt the chicken and set aside for one hour.
When the chicken is ready to be cooked, pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Mix 2 tblsps butter, 1/2 cup Huy Fong Foods, Inc. Sriracha, 1 tblsp red wine vinegar, and 2 tsp sugar. Slather the mixture all over the outside of the chicken. Bake breast side-down for 30 minutes.
You can see the marinade coating the chicken after half an hour.
Turn the heat down to 350 degrees. Flip the chicken so it's breast side-up and and continue cooking for another hour.
Perfectly golden and juicy.
Juicy! Remember to let the chicken rest for at least 10 minutes after taking it out of the oven to let the juices redistribute before carving it or the chicken will be dry.
Serve with carrot and celery sticks and Jicama Slaw with Dijon Mustard Vinaigrette.
