I was invited to a last-minute "Road Homegate" last week and needed to whip up something fast but tasty. Boy did I come up with a ridiculously fast, but outrageously good recipe for the occasion. It has only 4 ingredients, cooks up in the oven in an hour and will get you lots of raves: Honey Sriracha Wings!
I still had a half bottle of sriracha left from when I made some lime-sriracha popcorn not too long ago, so I wanted to use it up to make more room in my fridge. I combined that with some honey and good ol' grated lime zest. I roasted a 3-lb package of wings, and slathered it on the wings about 15 minutes before they were finished. Oh my. Pull down the blinds, dim the lights and dig in. But don't forget paper towels and wet naps. These little buggers are sticky! The sweetness of the honey offsets the heat of the sriracha, while the lime zest comes up from the rear to brighten things up. It's a nice combo and works well with the wings. You can also use it on chicken, ribs or pork. So invite the gang over to check out the games, whip up some of that spicy glaze, get some towels and get ready for some serious munching.
Honey Sriracha Wings
3 lbs chicken wings
2 cups honey
1 cup sriracha sauce
2 tbs lime zest
Pre-heat oven to 375-degrees. Place wings on a sheet pan and place in the oven for 45 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
Place the honey, sriracha and lime zest in a bowl and mix thoroughly. After 45 minutes, baste the wings with the honey mixture and place back in the oven for another 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, remove from the oven and unleash on your guests!
This will be a great go-to dish when you don't have time to do anything else at the moment. Trust me when I say that this is a winner!
Hope you try this and if you do, please let me know how you liked it.
See you next week and keep on homegating!
