Cilantro Honey Chili marinade

Also know as “The super secret chicken”

This marinade is cilantro heavy, as in “Woha hello cilantro” but it keeps the chicken juicy and gives it a nice summer flavor, the chili sauce adds just a hint of pow.

3 cloves of garlic
Fresh Cilantro – about two good sized handfuls of the leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Sriracha
Juice of one lime
Salt and Pepper to taste

Take cloves of garlic and mince in a food processor. If a food processor is not available then mince the garlic by hand.

Add the cilantro to the food processor and mince, with the food processor running start to add the liquid ingredients. Starting with the oil, then honey, then Sriracha. Finishing off by adding the juice of one lime.

Once fully blended together add salt and pepper to taste. I like just a dash of sea or Kosher salt added. It’s also a good time to adjust the sweetness or heat to your liking. It is good to note that during marinade and cooking much of the heat from the Sriracha is lost.

I found I needed to stop at intervals to make sure the cilantro was getting equally chopped up.

Marinade chicken for at least one hour before cooking, up to 24 hours.
