Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • For the Wings:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for the pan
  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • For the Sauce:
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil. Dry the chicken wings with paper towels and place in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the melted butter, granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour the mixture over the wings and toss well to coat. Spread the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the wings until browned and crisp, 45 to 55 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice and stir until the mixture bubbles gently. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Carefully remove the wings from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the wings and gently toss to coat. Transfer the wings to a serving platter and drizzle with more honey; serve with lime wedges.

Very Kid Friendly. The kids devoured it. Made it with vegetable fried rice.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the wings for the Super Bowl, was excited, expecting hot and spicy. While they were tasty, there was no kick at all. My regular buffalo wings had more heat which is surprising given the amount of sriracha. item not reviewed by moderator and published
SO DELICIOUS -- I recommend that once they are finishd you lightly drizzle with honey and then broil until caramelized. After they are finished, toss them once more in the sauce before serving. I also doubled everything (sriracha, honey, pepper, etc). First time making wings, came out PERFECT. <3 Will definitely be making more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good! Just enough spice without beng too spicy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful! I grill my wings then toss them in the sauce. The sauce is not hot enough for my liking so I add a minced Thai chilli to the sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG! Delicious. We grilled our wings and then tossed them in the sauce. We liked it better without the drizzle of honey - it made it a little too sweet for us. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Totally making these for Game Day!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted to make wings for the first time and decided to use this recipe because it sounded delicious. I was not disappointed! Definitely not too hot and everyone was right about sweet and hot being a great combo. I followed the advice of a few and broiled mine for 3 minutes on each side. Perfection! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked the flavor of the sauce, and would agree with the other reviewers that the balance of sweet and spicy was absolutely perfect. It was very simple to prepare, and I like the suggestion below of broiling for a bit for extra crispiness. Next time though I will figure out how to thicken up the sauce a bit. I found it to be too thin and that was disappointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We're Buffalo Anchor Bar wing fans ( being from Bflo. & always make those wings from a great recipe I have....BUT, decided to try something different where we wouldn't have to use the deep fryer. These were GREAT!!!! I used less oil & butter than recipe & didn't use oil on my non-stick pan & still had a lot of grease to blot off. We put Habanero hot sauce in w/sriracha, as sriracha wasn't hot enough for us. I put them under the broiler after baking to get them really crispy.Will make these again...so much easier than deep frying. GREAT RECIPE!!!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prepared the wings a little differently to go along with another wing recipe flavour I was making. I fried them in some oil, then tossed them in with the sauce mixture and baked for 30 minutes, rebasting after the first 15. They were delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These wings were delicious! Sweet, then a little kick. Couldn't stop eating them. My 12 and 10 yr old boys enjoyed them too. I would use less butter like my fellow San Franciscan, revsiddall, said below. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So yummy and delayed heat.. I won 1st place in a wing contest with these! I did add red hot pepper flakes to the first and second steps to kick up the heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published

WOW!!!! I made these wings using Alton Brown's method of steaming then broiling and they were fantastic!!!

The word Sriracha did it. What is it? So to find out we made the Honey-Siraracha wings, and we are happy we did. Spicily scrumptious, and we love wings!! Our assignment was an appetizer for our supper club and this one got recipe requests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
