Zesty Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings
Oh. My. LAWWD. This. This. This! ?
Sweet, spicy, crispy, sticky and MOUTHWATERING.
And the question I am now asking myself after eating these pieces of heaven is… Why am I now just starting to make wings? I’ve missed out.
And the best part is I was shocked at how easy this recipe was – No fuss. No stress. No mess. Hey, I’m a happy girl when it comes to that! And I’m also not a crazy spicy, let-me-light-your-mouth-on-fire person like some people. BUT I can take a little hit of it when it’s balanced well. So my goal was to balance the amount of honey and Sriracha so they complimented each other. And POOF. It did just that and turned out to be a punch of FLAVOR and spicy-sweet GOODNESS. ?
SIDE NOTE: when you happen to make this recipe and feel a weird desire to eat all the wings before anyone finds out they exist, do not be worried. This is completely normal. Or “normal” as in “this is me all the time and I think I’m normal.”….Probably not comforting.
But really, just eat them.
I’m also anxiously awaiting football season right now, not that I watch it or anything, but I’m ready to get my GRUB on and make these babies. If you are in a need of entertaining a game night, big crowds, BBQ’s or for a fun and easy dinner, these are a definitely crowd pleaser. Anxiously awaiting the next time I make them!
- 1 1/2 lbs chicken wings
- cilantro for garnish
- 3 tbsp sriracha
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp flour **optional
In small bowl whisk together all of marinade ingredients till completely combined.
Fold chicken wings with hands into marinade, soaking each one evenly in Sriracha glaze. Let wings sit in marinade for 30 minutes. If you are short on time you can skip marinating and cook right away.
Preheat oven to 400F. Lay wings evenly on a sheet pan and cook for 25-28 minutes. Remove, and brush with Sriracha glaze once more. Place back into oven for 1-2 minutes on HI broil or until slightly charred.
Remove from oven, and top with cilantro and have your favorite dipping sauce ready to go!
