Sriracha-Honey Chicken Strips with Warm Corn and Pepper Salad

14 January, 2021

The sweet and spicy glaze in this recipe adds an addictive touch! If you want to make this recipe knife-free, use jarred roasted red bell pepper strips instead of the fresh. Fresh adds a nice bite of texture, but the jarred and roasted peppers add a charred kick.
