Spice Up Your Holiday Party with Honey Srircha Chicken Lollipops
by Katie Chin, Tastemaker in Residence
Looking for a way to spice up your holiday party? Well hop on board the Goodship Honey Srircha Chicken Lollipop! I created this delicious honey srircha glaze for a chicken wing recipe and decided to toss some chicken meatballs seasoned with lime juice, ginger, cilantro and scallions. The result is a honey srircha masterpiece. Each bite of Honey Srircha Chicken is bursting with sweet, spicy, buttery and savory flavors and trust me, they’ll be the hit of your holiday bash. Feel free to use beef, turkey or pork in place of the ground chicken. Do ahead tip: Make a large batch of meatballs, bake them, let cool and then put them in the freezer. A life saver for last minute entertaining. I like to buy premium Srircha sauce for the Honey Srircha Chicken Lollipop recipe in the gourmet section of World Market.

2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
4 Tbsp finely chopped green onion (scallion), white and green parts
4 Tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro)
