Honey Sriracha Wings

I found two recipes that sounded good, put them together, added my own spin and here’s what I ended up with;
Marinade:
  • 2½ pounds chicken wings
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Mix together the marinade ingredients in a sealable plastic bag and add the chicken wings.

Seal and place in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.

Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup Sriracha sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

Toss it all into a pot over medium heat.  Once it simmers, turn it down to low and stir it every now and then so it doesn’t burn.  When it’s thick, it’s done.

Naked wings.  Before the sauce.

Pour the sauce over cooked chicken wings.
Garnish with any or all of these groovy toppings;
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • green onions
  • Lime sections
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

With the sauce.  All dressed and ready to serve with beer.

I made wings but you could do drumsticks if you want.
Confession; I thought of making these too late so I didn’t marinate them.  Also, I didn’t garnish them.  They were delicious, but I think marinating them would provide a depth of flavour that I missed out on.  As for garnish, well, if you came over with beer I’d make these and garnish them.  And serve you cupcakes for dessert.
Try them and let me know how you changed the recipe to suit your taste and how they turned out.
Enjoy!
