So, the other night I was craving wings so badly…specifically sweet and spicy wings. I didn’t want to buy any wings (just off of vacation so I had had enough take-out), and I didn’t want anything too complicated to make. So, I remembered a headline I saw a few months back for honey Sriracha wings. That was all I needed to begin my quick culinary adventure!
They came out super crispy, sweet and spicy. Yummers! While you can fry these wings naked and sauce them or fry them breaded and sauce them, they are just as tasty (and healthier) when you bake the chicken then sauce them.
If you would like a healthier version of blue cheese, there is a quick recipe under the H. Grey’s Kitchen category of posts.
Cheers to eating well and loving what you eat!
You will need:
- 12 wingetttes (you may need to double the sauce recipe for more wings)
1/4 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/4 c. Sriracha hot suace
1/8 c. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. fresh basil or cinnamon basil, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
Season chicken generously with lemon pepper and a dash of sea salt.
Place wings on baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 mins.
While wings are baking:
In saucepan, combine soy sauce, Sriracha, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low.
After wings are finished baking.
Once wings are as crispy as you like, remove from oven.
Set oven to BROIL.
Dip each wing in sauce until well-covered.
Return to baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place sheet in oven and let broil until sauce is a little sticky and wings brown and crisp a bit more.
Garnish with a little extra Sriracha, honey and chopped basil, with a side of blue cheese.
