Easy Stir Fry Broccoli In Popeyes Sweet Heat Sauce

“Love that chicken from Popeyes” is the Louisiana Popeyes restaurant’s slogan. They are famously known for their fried chicken, but their Sweet Heat Sauce is my only go-to dipping sauce. 

The sauce is sweet with a hint of heat. I have used it several times in meat dishes and stir fry vegetables. The sauce reminds me of sweet and sour sauce with a hint of spice. This makes it ideal for injecting flavor into bland vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, asparagus, and cabbage.
