With football season swinging into high gear, party foods are in high demand. Needless to say, chicken wings are the best snacks for any football game! You can make them in any flavor, but of course… Sriracha makes everything kick butt. Instead of making ordinary Buffalo wings, grab that Rooster sauce and make these incredible Sriracha-waitin’-for Chicken Wings.
Usually Buffalo wings are made by tossing fried chicken wings in bottled red hot pepper sauce. My chicken wings kick it up a notch by using the ever-so-famous Sriracha sauce, melted butter, sweet honey, and a little bit of salty soy sauce. Green onions add a little zesty zing. Oh, and they’re baked instead of fried just to make them a little healthier, too. These are no boring wings. If you make these just one time, expect to make them again — everybody else will be counting on you. Watch out. They’re that good.
Here’s what you need:
Party wings (chicken drummettes and wings), olive oil, Sriracha sauce, low-sodium soy sauce, unsalted butter, honey, and green onions. Pre-heat that oven to 375 degrees F.
Make sure you’ve washed the wings under water and patted them dry with paper towels. Transfer them to a foil-lined baking sheet.
Let’s coat them in a little oil before we put them in the oven.
Coat everything well with oil to achieve a crispy chicken wing!
Spread them out on one layer to ensure even baking. Bake for 40-50 minutes.
As the wings are about to finish up, throw all the other ingredients into a saucepan over medium-high heat: soy sauce, honey, butter, and Sriracha.
Everything will come together with heat!
Now that’s infinitely better than bottled Buffalo wing sauce. You must taste this.
Pour the sauce into a large bowl and add half of the chopped green onions.
The chicken wings will look golden brown and crisp like this when they’re ready to leave the oven. It’ll really take at least 40 minutes!
Leave behind the grease in the baking sheet and transfer the wings to the bowl of sauce.
Toss toss toss.
And serve immediately.
Sriracha-waitin’-for Chicken Wings
Total time: 45 minutes
Cook: 40 min
Prep: 5 min
Yield: 2 servings
1.5 pounds chicken party wings, with wings and drummettes — rinsed under cold water and patted dry with paper towels
1/8 cup Olive oil or vegetable oil
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1/4 cup Sriracha sauce
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (recommended: Kikkoman)
3 tablespoons honey
3 scallions, green and white parts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
Place the chicken wings on the baking sheet and toss wings with oil to coat. Spread wings on one single layer to ensure even cooking. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown and crispy and juices run clear inside. While the chicken cooks, prepare sauce. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together butter, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and honey until everything is melted and combined. Transfer sauce to a large bowl and add half the chopped scallions.
Remove the chicken wings from the oven and transfer the wings into the bowl with sauce, leaving behind the grease in the pan. Toss the wings in sauce to coat. Transfer to a platter and garnish with remaining chopped scallions. Serve immediately.
