Fruit.  One of my favorite things to eat in the Summer.  The heat of the grill pulls out the natural sugars in the fruit, letting the flavors come alive with a caramelized sweetness that is explosive.  It’s the best.

Sweet & Simple.

Hit it wish some fresh aromatic Cilantro & acidic Lime……. Perfection.

And the Results are AMAZING!!!

This is a super crowd pleaser!!!  Make this dish for your Memorial Day Cookout.  You will NOT be disappointed…..I promise!!!  Even the kids like it.  You can always tone down the heat some by adding less Sriracha.  Always Season to YOUR Taste!

Tonight, I served my Grilled Pineapple along with Grilled Citrus Chicken, Peppers & Onions, Coconut Cardamon Rice and garnished with Fresh Chopped Cilantro and Fresh Grilled Lime.  And, perhaps, just a little extra Honey Sriracha sauce on the side! 🙂

Parmesan Sriracha Crusted Chicken

 

 

This is SUPER SIMPLE, while still bringing The Heat!!! Big Flavor, Y'all!!!

Parmesan Sriracha Crusted Chicken

Ok, let me simplify your life a little bit with this super quick, few ingredient, BIG FLAVOR dish.  Seriously, when I made this the other night, the Hubs said “This is SO GOOD.  You need to write this one down.”  And I was all like….”Ha!  It was so easy, I don’t even NEED to write it down.  Anyone can remember this!”  That’s why all you working and back to school parents are gonna thank me for this one!  So darn easy.  You don’t even really need to measure anything.  I used 2 chicken breasts, you can use as many as you need if you are feeding a crowd, or just one if you are cooking for yourself!  This would be a great dish to serve at a dinner party!!!  I will give you the general amount for 2 portions. Adjust Ingredients Accordingly.

Ingredients:

2 Organic Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

4 tsp Sriracha Sauce, divided

1/3 Cup Mayonnaise

Paula Deen House Seasoning (Salt, Granulated Onion, Granulated Garlic, Pepper)

Mix Together Parm, Mayo & 2 tsp Sriracha (or to taste. It packs a pretty good kick!)

Sprinkle Paula Deen’s House Seasoning (gotta support my girl, Paula!!!!)

Top with Sriracha to taste!

Coat Chicken with Parm, Mayo, Sriracha Mixture.  Should be pretty thick!

Bake 325 for 45 mins.  Or until Juices run clear and Crust is Golden Brown.

Devour.

If adding the Sriracha onto the Chicken packs too much heat, omit this step and only use the Sriracha in the Crust Mixture!

Crust Mixture should be thick enough to stick to the chicken!

A simple and delicious meal for a busy weeknight.  I bet you can even prepare the chicken the night before or that mornign and refrigerate until ready to pop in the oven that night!!!!  I’m also thinking this would be good for fish as well!  I’ll do some experimenting and let you know!
