Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce Chicken Wings: A Super Bowl 2011 Snack Touchdown!


My husband loves spicy food. In fact, we have a warehouse size container of red pepper flakes and I am not exaggerating. We also have Tabasco, add garlic to our dishes and do ever we can to accommodate his need for heat.

And with one of the biggest trends in food being Sriracha hot chili sauce, we have been trying some recipes to see what type of flavor as well heat it adds. Our first experiment was Sriracha Chicken Wings…..

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1.5 teaspoons sesame seed oil
1.5 teaspoons ground ginger
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tsp garlic powder or 2 large cloves, minced
3 tablespoons sriracha sauce
2-3 lbs of chicken wings
1 teaspoons salt, divided

1. Combine honey through sriracha in a bowl and whisk until combined. Pour into a storage bag, add chicken and marinate a minimum of 30 minutes.  The longer you can marinade the better and overnight is ideal for optimal flavor.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and prepare the baking sheet by placing a cooling rack on it (it helps to crisp the skin).

3. Spray the cooling rack with the cooking spray. Remove the wings from the bag and season with the salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Serve with reduced fat ranch or blue cheese dressing.
