Honey Sriracha Chicken

IMG_2340With a full time job the last few weeks I have been trying to find some easy dinner recipes. I really don’t want to come home and make a fancy meal when I’ve only seen my daughters for a few minutes. This was an easy recipe I could throw in the oven and forget about it. Along with a potato and dinner was ready, plus a vegetable of course. I miss those days when I could plan dinner at noon and start making it at three in the afternoon. Instead I’m grading papers at three in the afternoon, making sure I have everything ready for the next day.

This is a great recipe that fits into my clean eating regiment. I attempt to eat clean and I notice a difference in my life with it.
