Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Sriracha Sauce
Who else is a huge fan of this spicy Sriracha Sauce that you can identify by the picture of a rooster on the bottle? Some people even call this Rooster Sauce, and I love this to add a touch of spicy flavor to so many things!
For years I remember seeing Sriracha Sauce on the tables in Asian restaurants, and my friends who loved spicy food called it Rooster Sauce because of the rooster on the bottle. But I’m not someone who loves ultra spicy foods, so for a long time I never tried it.
Fast-forward quite a few years later and I noticed food bloggers everywhere talking about the great flavor of Sriracha. And since I tried it, I’ve been loving this spicy Asian hot sauce whenever I want just a little spicy-hot flavor in something. And now Sriracha has become pretty mainstream in the U.S.
And now Sriracha Sauce is something that’s always in my fridge and I even have a round-up post of Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Sriracha, so I’ve added it to Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, my list of food items and products that I happily buy over and over.
How do I use Sriracha Sauce?
I mostly use Sriracha mixed into a dressing or stir-fry sauce, and I do have a few recipes where it’s used to add spicy flavor to chicken. Check below for a few of my favorite recipes using this tasty sauce, and be sure to check after the photos for even more recipes! (And if you have a favorite recipe that uses Sriracha, please let us know about it in the comments!)

Where can you get Sriracha Sauce?
For a few years there was a shortage of the Huy Hong Foods authentic Sriracha Sauce that you see in these photos, due to weather conditions making it hard to grow the spicy peppers. That’s why you may see other brands of Sriracha at your grocery store, but you can still get authentic Sriracha Sauce (affiliate link) at Amazon.com. I haven’t tried any of the other brands; look for the green lid if you want the original Sriracha.
