Grill up some honey-sriracha ketchup marinaded chicken this summer. Served over a bed of kale-quinoa and drizzled with lime yogurt sauce.
Oh Sriracha. For spice lovers this condiment has quickly become a staple item in the kitchen and has been mixed into just about everything you can imagine. One of my favorite adaptations is sriracha ketchup. While I do like spice, I tend to weigh in more towards to medium side and this combo finds that happy medium that I prefer. Normally I just whip it up myself, but Red Gold recently took it upon themselves to fill a need and went ahead and bottled it for the masses. Which means I then had to use it in a summer grilling recipe for your viewing and devouring pleasure. These honey-sriracha ketchup marinated chicken tenders are grilled and then served over a bed of kale-quinoa. Then drizzle with some lime yogurt sauce, which pairs with the sriracha just as well as blue cheese/ranch and Buffalo sauce. I think it should be a thing.
Also of note, for the third year Red Gold is hosting its popular Summer Grillin’ Party that runs June 24th – July 22nd on its Facebook page and is giving away a Large Big Green Egg as well as insulated tote bags. Note the date: TODAY IS THE LAST DAY! Click HERE to enter.

HONEY-SRIRACHA KETCHUP GRILLED CHICKEN
1-1.2 lb. chicken tenders
1/2 cup Red Gold’s sriracha ketchup
1/4 cup honey
LIME YOGURT SAUCE
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp minced cilantro
2 cups water
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup packed chopped kale
- Place chicken in a large shallow bowl (or a gallon zip-top bag).
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the sriracha ketchup and honey. Pour over chicken and cover with saran wrap (or seal closure), and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
- In a small bowl whisk together the yogurt, lime juice, and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
- After 8 hours (or the next day) preheat grill to medium-high heat.
- While the grill heats, add water, quinoa, and kale to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed. Set aside.
- While the quinoa cooks, cook chicken on grill 4-5 minutes a side, or until cooked through.
- Serve chicken over quinoa and drizzle with yogurt sauce.
