Chicken dinners are simple and easy, so it’s nice to find recipes that can be unique. This firebird chicken recipe by Food Wishes on YouTube looks amazing and I love spicy food. This would be catered to those that can handle the spice because habanero peppers are no joke. I think spicy foods give such a nice flavoring to dishes. Even though I can’t handle too much spice, I think it’s worth it and it’s addicting. Plus, this chicken has a nice golden brown color to it, and it looks very tasteful. There’s not much going on with this chicken recipe, which is why it’s easy to pair it with anything.
- 1 clove garlic, sliced
- 2 eaches habanero peppers, seeded and chopped
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 3 tbsp Sriracha sauce
- 1 large egg
- 2 (8oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1/4 cup rice flour
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
First, to make the sauce, combine garlic, habanero peppers, and salt in a mortar and pestle and crush it into a paste. If you don’t have one, you can blend it in a food processor or smash it in a bowl with a spoon. Add Sriracha and egg to the mixture and whisk to combine.

Next, once the chicken strips have been marinated in the sauce for 2 to 12 hours in the fridge, cook them on a nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
This firebird chicken can be served on a bed of rice and a side of vegetables. However, if you’re watching out for carbs, you can serve these like grilled chicken tenders with a side of sauce. They look so juicy, and really requires no effort to make. The sauce is what makes up for this recipe.
