    Tasty and simple. I normally don't mix sweet and savory but my kid picked out this recipe so I made it. It was very good and easy to make. It was not too sweet and had light to medium spice. We will add a little more sriracha next time.  -  13 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made it exactly as written, but I thought the honey Sriracha sauce was a little thin. I took another reviewer's advice and basted them, then put them back in the on 425 for 5 minutes and basted them again before serving. They were delicious! I served them with garlic mashed potatoes and cheesy peas.  -  08 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It came out Great, I did it with the skin on because I know my audience and for the last 5 mins I increased the oven temp to 425 to crisp the skin!  -  07 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
