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!

  44. hello kitty says:

    Iam a spicy lady!!!! Currently making this now hopefully it will come out as beautiful as this ★☆★♡

  45. This looks mouth-watering. I can’t wait to cook this myself.

  46. Made these wings tonight and they were delicious!

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

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

  48. LOVE IT! It is 10am and my mouth is watering looking at your pics, G! Wow! So yummy…this is one my favorite combinations, and I know for the fact that this is 100% delicious recipe! Well done!

  49. This glaze was so good! I ended up putting the left over sauce on some rice…perfect!

  50. 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

  51. 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!

  52. 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

  53. 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! :)

  54. 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.

  55. 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!

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

  57. I just made these. They are awesome!!!! I will eat them again. Its pretty easy to make too. Thank you so much for releasing this recipe

  58. 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!

  59. 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?

  60. 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!
