Honey Sriracha Chicken and Noodles
We're known for quick cooked workday meals here at Rock Recipes and today I'm adding yet another. I've come to become a little addicted to Sriracha hot sauce in the past year, using it practically like ketchup on everything from steak to poached eggs. In fact I actually do mix it into ketchup to use as a delicious sweet and spicy condiment on burgers, hot dogs and especially for dunking french fries. I'm not a particular fan of vinegar based hot sauces and find sriracha has better flavor anyway.

Craving something quick cooked and spicy for dinner last night, I used it in this quickly stir-fried chicken recipe. Super fast Chinese noodles are always a favorite at our house and the fact that they cook in only 3 to 4 minutes makes them ideal to serve with quick stir fries like this one. Twenty minutes is all it took to have this flavorful meal on the table.
