Seared Chicken with Sriracha Barbecue Dipping Sauce

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 thighs and 1 tablespoon ketchup mixture)
Use this all-purpose sauce for pork, shrimp, or seared tofu. Make it when you start marinating the chicken. Serve over sticky white rice to counter the heat of the dipping sauce. Toss edamame with soy sauce, garlic, and hoisin to complete the meal.

  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil, divided
  • 8 (2-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs
