I am very thankful to have a wonderful husband who knows how to cook good food. When I want to eat something that Patrick doesn't know how to make, he learns how to make it or tries to recreate it at home. He whips up things easily on the fly and they turn out to be really delicious. I was craving for chicken wings earlier today and Patrick came up with the idea to make sriracha honey butter wings.
It was so freaking good that I had to share this recipe with you guys immediately, so you can all experience the same joy I had while gnawing on these wings and sucking the bones dry. It's sweet and tangy, slightly spicy. The outside is crispy while the inside is moist and juicy.
I can see this being a weekly addiction. You have been warned.
Sriracha honey butter chicken wings Recipe
Serves 2 people (as an appetizer)
- 8 chicken wings
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons sriracha
- 4 tablespoons butter
- kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
- In a small saucepan, melt honey, sriracha and butter over medium heat. Taste and add more or less of the honey or srircha to liking. Remove from heat then set aside.
- Heat a large skillet over high heat and add olive oil. Season the chicken wings, add to skillet and sear on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side until brown. Remove from skillet and place chicken on a wire rack with a rimmed sheet pan.
- Brush the first side with the sauce and bake in oven for 10 minutes. Flip over and brush the remaining sauce on the other side and bake for another 10 minutes.
- Finish off the wings by turning the oven to broil and brown it to your liking. Be careful and watch it very closely so the chicken doesn't burn.
