This is outstanding! Used only the basic ingredients (chicken, onions, rice instead of quinoa), and the sauce mix; absolutely fantastic! I did go a bit overboard on the sriracha though. So, I ended up downing about a half gallon of tea!

Sauce ratio is off. Even out the sriracha and honey and up the lemon juice. Otherwise unbearable hot (not in a good way).

would definitely make this again.
Amanda 29 Aug 2018
This came out excellent! It was just a little too much spice for us (and i couldn’t find sesame seeds) but we’ll definitely make it again and cut the sriracha just a tad.

Very tasty! Decreased Sriracha and added a little more honey, turned out great.
Emily George 11 Mar 2018
Delicious! A bit spicy if you add extra Sriracha on top, so taste it first!
Justin H. 29 Jan 2018
This is one of my go to’s for dinner and for leftovers I sometimes add some other veggies and such or change out the chicken for other meat or veggies.

Used red rice instead of quinoa. Just the right amount of sweet and salty, the spicy flavor stands out which we love!
Meredith T. 9 Jul 2017
Spicy but delicious!
Alison N. 13 Jun 2017
This is one my favorite things to make. It's really easy and SO good. I add a little chili garlic to the sauce, and I steam some broccoli and have that on the side. Love this recipe!
Claudia Théberge 30 Mar 2017
Delicious! I used Agave nectar rather than Honey and rice vinegar rather than lemon juice. My husband and I LOVED it! We like our food spicy, so it was perfect for us.

BIG hit when I had friends over for an impromptu dinner during moving and not many ingredients left in house. Everyone loved it and the more Siracha the better for me...bring on the heat. Balances perfect with the honey and sesame. Yum!
Emily Peterson 15 Oct 2016
Delicious! I would make it a touch less spicy next time, but that's the Norwegian in me. My older daughter loved it, my younger daughter agreed with me.
Robin Angell 5 Oct 2016
Liked the recipe, but way too much Sriracha for us! I only used 1/4 cup, and it was still too much, so I will cut back further next time. And, just a suggestion - use regular (white) quinoa as in the pictures. I only had tri-color, and while it tasted fine, it did not look appealing next to the Sriracha sauce.

Quite yummy! Spicy, not too sweet, and easy to make. Quinoa was very good made in broth. Recommend for a good family meal.
Jane J. 16 Aug 2016
This was really good! Very spicy though! I loved it but the family found it hot. I served it on some cauliflower rice to cut back on the carbs.
Lisa Dunn 23 May 2016
Ah-mazing! I did not make the quinoa I just made the chicken with a side of roasted vegetables. Next time the children would like wontons on the side too
Joanne S. 4 May 2016
awesome recipe!! Definitely 2 thumbs up! My kids and husband loved it!!! I added broccoli to the recipe only because we love broccoli and chicken combined..
Mary S. 29 Mar 2016
Great flavors! It is very honey & very sriracha. Didn't need to change a thing about the recipe to make it work. And I've also made it without the quinoa & put it on skewers for a good finger food to have out at a party.
MaRisa J. 19 Mar 2016
I wasn't a big fan. There wasn't enough flavor for me. Maybe more vegetables? I would not make it again.
Danielle S. 17 Mar 2016
Perfect! Family loves it! Although we cut way back on sriracha - I don't know how anyone can use 1/2 cup! I use 1/8 c and it's plenty hot! Only change I make is almost doubling it so we can have left overs!
Jenny M. 14 Mar 2016
This recipe is simple and delicious. Even a beginner like me can pull it off. I'll make it again for sure!
Faith D. 6 Mar 2016
This recipe is so easy!!! It is very tasty and satisfying. I have shared this with several friends.
Nikki Cotton 27 Feb 2016
This is one of my all time favorites for chicken. Perfectly spicy sweet!! The directions are clear and easy. I'm making some now!!!
Aryeh B. 3 Feb 2016
This was a really great recipe. Really easy and not too time consuming, but so tasty! I double the amount of quinoa since I'm a big quinoa fan, otherwise made no alterations to the recipe.
A R. 3 Feb 2016
I followed the recipe and this is very good, there is a bit of heat and quinoa, noodles or rice is good with it. You may have to cook it longer to get the sauce to cook down and thicken.
Jenn m. 2 Feb 2016
I made this but,. LOL... made a few changes. I didn't have enough chicken so I used pork pieces that were left over from a pork shoulder/butt that we trimmed, and tossed it in cornstarch. I used about 1/3 of a cup of honey to cut the heat some. I like lots of vegetables so I also used broccoli, carrots, celery, three minced garlic cloves and about an inch of fresh grated ginger. I didn't add any extra salt or pepper. Of course the prep isn't as fast as the original but was tasty as long as you don't mind heat. And I really enjoyed it with the quinoa.
Duane R. 1 Feb 2016
Easy/quick prep time and cook, not bad for a weekday meal. Tastes pretty good, but then again i wouldn't be writing home about it either.
Alina Weber 1 Feb 2016
omg so good pls mak one with beaf once but anyways mouth watering yummyly. Great job picking this LOve it. Even my sisters who normaly hates spicy stuff loves this
Tina H. 31 Jan 2016
This was a quick and easy recipe. It was full of flavor. My husband loved the spice level but my son and I were overwhelmed. Next time I will have to decrease the amount of sriracha.
