Baked Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings – Spicy, sweet and sticky baked wings with Sriracha and honey. Perfect for parties! |

One thing I don’t glorify nearly enough on this blog is my love of spicy food! Gone is the girl who once shied away from hot sauce and jalapeño slices, zippy wasabi and dried chilies. Give me it all! I mean, well… maybe just in small doses. And, maybe I need a box of tissues and a glass of milk nearby. But, hey, I still love spicy!

Truthfully, I have to credit the guy who kicked my bum and helped me crossover into loving more than just bland, safe dishes like pot pies and meatloaf. I still cooked him plenty of those in the process! But, being someone who will try any food once (and sometimes JUST once), my adventurous palate has opened me up to a world of possibilities!

Not to scare you away from these wings. They’re not exactly five-alarm hot – more tangy and zesty, with a slight kick from the Sriracha that’s balanced beautifully with the sticky honey. The salty soy ties all the flavors together so nicely, and a squeeze of fresh lime adds a fresh brightness to these finger-lickin’-good wings!

After photographing this dish and sampling “just one,” I couldn’t stop! Savory dishes are rarely addictive to me, but these were unreal. Hubby agreed!

These chicken wings are also perfect for your fall parties and lazy Sundays spent watching football! After all, there’s nothing better than a delicious, unexpected twist on traditional wings to get people in a party mood. Just make sure to make a BIG batch for your buddies! These babies are bound to fly off the platter…

Using tender Gold’n Plump® All Natural™ Chicken Wings, these garlicky and buttery baked wings are a cinch to make. Just toss them in a mixture of spices, vegetable oil and butter, bake for 45 minutes, and make your bubbly, spicy-sweet sauce. Once the wings are crisp, slather on your sauce and sprinkle the wings with fresh cilantro and sesame seeds. Scoot some lime wedges alongside, and you have an easy, football-friendly appetizer for game day!

Baked Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings

Yield: Makes 4 servings


For the Wings:
Nonstick cooking spray
1 1/2 to 2 pounds Gold’n Plump® All Natural™ Chicken Wings
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 cup Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)

For Serving (optional):
Fresh cilantro

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mix butter, vegetable oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pat dry chicken wings with paper towels and place on baking sheet. Pour butter mixture over wings and toss well to coat. Arrange wings in a single layer on baking sheet and bake until browned and crisp, 45 to 55 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil then remove from heat.

Place cooked wings in a large bowl. Pour sauce over wings and gently toss to coat. Transfer wings to a serving platter. Sprinkle with cilantro and sesame seeds, and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

    These look wonderful Georgia! I’m a sucker for chicken wings and spicy food, so I would definitely demolish some of these wings!

    Christine @ Cooking with Cakes — November 20, 2013 @ 10:39 am

    These look incredible!! I’ve made Honey BBQ Wings before myself, but the addition of Sriracha is simply perfect!!

    Also a quick tip – if you can find a wire rack that fits into your baking sheet, cook your wings on those. it’ll get them extra crispy on all sides, you’ll love it!

    I was the same way too. I shied away from spicy food until I met my husband. Don’t we just love the men in our lives? :) These wings look FANTASTIC Georgia! The moment I saw srirracha, I knew I would love this post. Pinned! :) Have a great rest of the week!

    I love any and all spicy food. Seriously, I want it all! I’ve never been a big wings person before now–but these might have me changing my mind. Great recipe, Georgia!

    Ashley — November 20, 2013 @ 8:15 pm

    Oh man, my husband would go NUTS for these. He’s been asking me to make wings forever and I just haven’t gotten around to it! They sound amazing!

    Over the last year or two, I’ve started to enjoy spicier foods (not super crazy spicy but a good amount!). I wouldn’t go near them before that … funny how your tastes change!

    We hardly buy ketchup in this house… we are a sriracha loving family (including my young kids). :)

    I could eat that whole platter without blinking an eye… delicious!

    KirstenNB — November 21, 2013 @ 7:51 am

    So you didn’t bake them at all after adding the sauce mixture?
    They look amazing. I am not a wings fan, but am considering doing a combo of wings and drumsticks for hubby and I.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Pam — November 21, 2013 @ 11:03 am

    I love spicy food too but I have to be careful because my kids can’t handle too much heat. I have a feeling my husband would be beyond thrilled if I made these for him!

    steph@stephsbitebybite — November 21, 2013 @ 11:11 am

    My husband would think I was a god if I made this for him…Perfect timing since I’m gonna be going to spend lots of money on Christmas presents :)

    Judy — November 26, 2013 @ 8:07 pm

    Made these wings tonight and they were delicious!

    Question though: how do you get them to not smoke up the house when baking?

    • Georgia — November 26th, 2013 @ 8:11 pm

      I haven’t had that problem before, so I’m not sure. Maybe try a lower temperature and longer baking time?

    Made these today for the Winter classic and they are AWESOME. So easy to make. They will be cooked many times in the future!
    Thanks for the recipe

    Denise — January 1, 2014 @ 4:19 pm

    Made these today. WOW. They were awesome! I must admit….I plated them and had a good amount of sauce left in the bowl…and am eating ALL OF IT straight up! YUM. Gonna try this on chicken breasts too, or chicken tenders even. Holy moly this was soooo good!

  51. #
    Eli — January 2, 2014 @ 2:30 pm

    I made these today! Soooo good. I had a lemon on hand, no lime and scallions, no cilantro. They turned out great..a new addition to the chicken wing collection. The sauce would be great on chicken with veggie stir fry

  52. #
    Annadee87 — February 4, 2014 @ 8:19 pm

    Amazing!! One of the best things I have pinned on Pinterest. My boyfriend isn’t the biggest wing fan and he couldn’t stop eating them. We had no left overs to say the least! :)

    Sunpist — April 1, 2014 @ 3:28 pm

    I’ve made these for my husband several times and he loves them. I’m planning on bringing them to a work potluck. What do you think would be a good way to keep them warm but not get soggy? I was thinking a crockpot on warm but I’m open to suggestions.

    • Georgia — April 1st, 2014 @ 3:49 pm

      Definitely try a warm CrockPot or a baking dish covered with foil. Also, I’ve served them at parties before at they’ve reached room temperature but everyone still enjoyed them!

  54. #
    Anne — May 7, 2014 @ 10:40 am

    Hi , Saw this on Pinterest , My husband loves Sriracha and chicken. I am definitely going to make these for him .

    Jody — January 3, 2015 @ 6:52 am

    YUMMMM… these sound amazing… my son and DIL are obsessed with Sriracha so I can’t wait to surprise them with these…. however… I did have a question….. on your recipe you say: “Pat dry chicken wings with paper towels and place on baking sheet. Pour butter mixture over wings and toss well to coat.” …… I’m pretty sure that’s not what you want us to do… but this could be very confusing to some just starting out… I can see a horrible mess doing that! Thanks for sharing this… going to make these for the playoffs to surprise the kids!

    • Georgia — January 3rd, 2015 @ 10:25 am

      Hi Jody – Thanks for your kind words! However, I’m not sure how you’re confused by that sentence. The directions in the recipe are written as I meant them to be followed. Could you clarify what you’re confused on, and let me know how I could help?

  57. #
    Sheena a — January 3, 2015 @ 11:40 am

    How well do you think these would work on chicken breasts or tenders? Would you marinate the chicken breasts raw in the sauce? Or cook them and then coat with sauce like you did with the wings?

    • Georgia — January 3rd, 2015 @ 12:18 pm

      Hi Sheena – I would prepare the recipe as directed, just substituting chicken breasts or tenders. Also, just decrease the cooking time to 20-30 minutes, depending which you’re using. It should work fine!
