Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings
Behind the Recipe
The Year Dad Didn’t Stand a Chance
For years, my dad and our next-door neighbor, Mark, have held a heated rivalry for who made the best wings. Last year, they took things to the next. They each cooked up a crazy amount of wings for the whole neighborhood. My dad won’t admit it, but he got smoked. Mark’s wings were so good… like ridiculously good… I just had to ask him for the recipe.
Whether you’re entertaining a couple friends or the whole neighborhood, this wing recipe will do the trick. A perfect mix of spicy and sweet brings opposing fans together.
- 2 lbs. chicken wings
- ½ cup Sriracha
- 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
- 2 tbsp. sesame seed oil
- 3 tbsp. honey
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 stalk green onion, chopped
- Salt and Pepper
- Season your wings with salt and pepper.
- In a sauce pan combine Siracha, honey, sesame seeds, sesame seed oil and sugar and bring to a simmer. Let this mixture cool for at least 30 minutes before adding to the wings.
- Chop green onion.
Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.
Cook the wings on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the chicken is well browned and no longer pink, 25 to 30 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl toss wings thoroughly together with sauce.
Top with chopped green onion and enjoy!
