Sriracha Chicken Pasta


Addicted. Hopelessly addicted. After I had Sriracha Chicken Wings, I couldn't stop thinking of what else I could do with Sriracha.



I had a big piece (400g) of chicken breast in the freezer and a chicken pasta came to mind. For the marinade, I used sriracha, honey, lime zest and juice, garlic and shredded kaffir lime leaves. I left the chicken to marinate for about 5 hours.

Chicken marinating inside a freezer bag. I left it in the fridge for
5 hours and took it out to room temperature before roasting.

Roasted on a lined tray at 180C for 30 minutes. Baste every 10 minutes.

Then I roasted the chicken at 180C for about 30 minutes. The smells wafting through my kitchen reminded me of tomyam! The chicken breast turned out very tender and moist. You could say that I am almost a chicken breasts convert. Almost.


You could serve the sliced chicken as it is with rice or toss it with a pasta, using the roasting juices as sauce.


If you want more heat, drizzle extra sriracha on the pasta like I did.


This is really good I tell you.


And if you are a coriander lover, which I am, you can "banjir" (flood) your pasta with this aromatic herb.


I think a squeeze of lime juice will perk up this pasta even more, not that it needs anything extra. 


I'll have to say that sriracha is my best discovery yet in 2015. Am I glad!

  8. Phong Hong,
    You know what .... I thought some food magazines promoting some fine dining menu ... wow! love your pictures .... and this Sriracha Chicken Pasta.
    Oh BTW, I went back to Giant hypermart and saw the brand of Sriracha chilli ... not exactly the one you use ... so I didn't buy it. I must finish all those sauces in my fridge before "investing" new ones ... hee ... hee! Ya, bookmarked your recipe first.

  15. sriracha!! aiyoh, that already sounds so exotic, especially if you pronounce it srira-charrrhhh!! muahahaha!!

    I like this dish, reminds me something I often had in Pasta Zanmai (not that I particularly like that but it is paired with the other dish that I very like).. any clue?? haha, the chicken teriyaki pasta, except that you are using the srira-charrhhh sauce instead of teriyaki sauce..

    and oh, I wonder if it's nice to do away with the (smelly) coriander and replace it with an onsen egg?? imagine you poked the egg and the runny yolk oozing all over the chicken and pasta, and then gets cooked a little by the warmth.. oolala!! wouldn't it be nice??
