Chicken Wings in Honey-Sriracha Sauce

 Chicken Wings in Honey-Sriracha Sauce
I was shocked to find out that I did not post any recipes with chicken wings or sriracha, until now. Considering that I really love sticky wings in the sweet and spicy sauce that puts on fire in my mouth. SeriouslyI could eat a dozen wings in one sitting. I am not proud of myself, but it’s reality.
Since the Labor Day is next month, and football season is starting I am sharing my ultimate recipe for the best spicy chicken wings. These are “the lick your fingers and grab some more” type of wings. Don’t let the color of the wings set you off because these are not overly spicy, just perfect to open up your appetite, but you could add more sriracha. On the other hand, I eat extremely spicy food, so maybe my taste buds are playing tricks thinking it is not hot if you cannot handle, reduce the chili sauce to your preferences. 
Again sweet meets spicy flavor and creates not only amazing flavor but the incredible taste! 
I hope you‘ll try them because you will love this simple recipe that could be grilled or baked. I will add the notes for the grilled version.

Ingredients

  • 2 Lb Chicken Wings, Thaw, if they are frozen
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil

Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha (Asian chili sauce/you may use gochujang as an alternative) Use less if you can't handle spicy food
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon oil any on your hand
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save when making stock.
  3. Using a knife, separate carefully the wings at the joint.
  4. Mix everything for the sauce, adding soy sauce to taste just like you would add salt, add 1/2 tsp at the time until you reach what is right for you;
  5. Line the baking pan with non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper (for easier clean up) and put the wings on the baking pan. Season with salt to taste and rub oil all over the chicken wings.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until they are completely done and look crunchy on the touch.
  7. Meanwhile, simmer the sauce in the saucepan until it becomes thicker and stir often approximately 10 minutes;

  8. Once the wings are done, take them out of the oven and brush on the thick sauce, or you might add them to the sauce directly. Let them get coated with the sauce. Any leftover sauce, serve on the side as a dip.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use any part of the chicken just make sure to cook according to the size, also this sauce goes well with fried chicken as well as shrimps.
  • For grilling option I would suggest to marinade wings in a bit of soy sauce and garlic for at least an hour and pat dry with paper towel, then grill until done, brush with the sauce once the wings are cooked. OR make a sauce and drop wings in the absorb all the sauce.
  • Another way to make a sauce is by mixing your favorite plain BBQ sauce with Sriracha and a drizzle of honey, simmer for 10 minutes on low and add baked or fried wings in the saucepan, stir in the sauce to coat all the wings.
