Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings

Total Time:
1 hr 5 min
20 min
45 min

4 servings

  • 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

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.

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

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
