As I mentioned earlier this week, I am home in Massachusetts this week and having such a wonderful time with my family despite the circumstances. It is so nice to have everyone home sharing meals, laughing, and just being together. With a brother in Florida, cousins in Texas, and with me in California we all only get a chance to get together a few times a year and there really isn’t anything I love more. My brother volunteered to cook last night and ended up making this amazing Sriracha Barbecue Chicken from Cooking Light. Wait? My brother can cook. I had no idea. Then he said, it is one of his favorite recipes and can be used for chicken thighs, chicken breasts, or even pork and is great. Wait? My brother cooks enough to have favorite recipes. More Shock. And wait? I want to swim in the Sriracha dipping sauce it is so good. Mouth open with shock.

Want a little extra heat? Add 1-2 tbsp of Sriracha to the marinade as well. This is something I know I will be making all summer.
