We just had dinner and the siracha bbq dipping sauce was worth writing about. This comes from Cooking Light and the sauce has a sweet spiciness that makes you want to keep eating it even though your mouth is tingling.
I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts as I always do. We don't do dark meat at my place. And I cut it up into little 1-inch chunks, perfectly dippable. I served it with jasmine rice (the only rice we eat at our house), and edamame sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Easy and quick is my motto these days and this recipe fits those (and the marinade and dipping sauce can be done ahead of time - like when the kids are asleep - so it makes it even quicker)!
