Sriracha Chicken Wings Recipe - So easy, addicting and perfect for parties. From WhiteOnRiceCouple.com

All right folks, hold on tight because you’re going to be blown away at how amazing these sriracha chicken wings are. If you’re a lover of Sriracha hot sauce, or any sriracha brand of hot sauce for that matter, these chicken wings will fly off your platter. The first test batch of these sriracha chicken wings almost disappeared within seconds of coming out of the oven. We literally inhaled eight of these chicken wings in 3 minutes  because the sriracha sauce was so good. So good. So finger-licking-good.

Sriracha chicken wing sauce is so good, dip anything in it!

We’re lovers of spice and with New Year’s Eve and all the football games coming up, we needed to spike our already popular crispy asian chicken wings with a little more sweet sriracha  heat. We set out to create a buffalo wing (or hot wing, chicken wing, or call it what you want) sauce with our different bottles of sriracha hot sauce.

Yes, there are many different bottles of sriracha hot sauce and we have about 5 different bottles sitting in our pantry, waiting to be coated over chicken wings. And if you’re ambitious like we are about the flair of spicy foods, you can make your own sriracha style chili hot sauce to add to this chicken wing sauce.

The most well known sriracha style hot sauce sauce is the Rooster Brand sriracha hot sauce by Huy Fong and we used this familiar green topped bottle for the sauce. Balanced with some ketchup, vinegar and the fresh golden char of onions and garlic, this sauce it to die for or fight for. The tangy, sweet, vinegary, gentle heat of this sriracha chicken wing sauce is just amped up with enough spice to keep your heart rate up and running for more. For more heat pleasure, just add more sriracha hot sauce!

We’ll be attending a big New Year’s party and can you already tell what our potluck contribution is? A huge platter of these sriracha chicken wings will be ready and waiting for the masses of party goers!

Sriracha Chicken Wings Recipe

Yield: Serves 2-3.

Total Time: 1 hour

These chicken wings are baked in the oven. For a crispier version, you can also deep fry the chicken wings. Best of all, this recipe doesn't have any butter and it's *healthier* and still delicious!

Ingredients:

  • about 2 pounds chicken wings, lightly coated with oil, tips removed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • about 1 small onion, minced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha hot sauce or any chili hot sauce (or more for a spicier sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. On baking sheet, spread chicken wings out on sheet and lightly coat wings with vegetable oil. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes, then flip chicken wings over and bake for about another 20 minutes, or until fully cooked and crispy brown.
  3. In sauce pan, heat the 2 tablespoons  of vegetable oil and add onion and garlic. On medium heat, continue stirring the onions and garlic until they are golden brown, but not burnt. Allowing the onions and garlic to reach a golden brown stage will bring out the extra fragrance and flavor. Then add ketchup, sriracha hot sauce, vinegar, fish/soy sauce and ground cumin.
  4. Stir well and let simmer for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.  After chicken wings have finished baking, toss wings in sauce. Serve warm, although these still taste great when they're cold!
  5. And oh, don't forget the beer!

Oh my. My grandmother made similar wings without the hot sauce. I never considered adding hot sauce to make them even better. These are definitely going on my “must cook NOW” list. They look delicious.

To get our sauce to caramelize, we toss in the sauce and then throw them under the broiler for about 2 min, just enough to get everything nice and sticky.

Shaina- baking the wings with the sauce on them sounds like a great idea. We’ll try that next time. thanks!

I tried a made a similar recipe for Srirach hot wings last year. I agree they’re amazing! I keep promising my girlfriend that I’ll make them again soon, and you’ve convinced me.

Todd and Diane- You always make me so hungry. These wings look delicious and totally do-able even with fifty million other things on the menu.

I hope your New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are spectacular and that the rest of your year surpasses the wonder of those two! You guys (and by guys I mean both of you. Remember- I have five sons. Everyone’s a ‘guy’.) are the best.

I’ve been looking for an alternative chicken wing recipe and I do believe I’ve found it. I’m fascinated by the combination of ketchup and sriracha. I’m putting these on my Super Bowl menu right this second.

19 White on Rice Couple December 30, 2009 at 1:23 pm

Natanya- the ketchup adds a nice sweetness to the sauce! But if you don’t want to use ketchup, you can use tomato sauce and add 1 teaspoon of sugar!

Just a word of warning that most are probably aware of – onions take much longer to cook than garlic.

If you add the onions and the garlic at the same time and try to really get the onions caramelized and brown, your garlic will be burnt and bitter. Cook the onions for ~5 minutes, until a nice translucent golden color, before adding the garlic.

24 White on Rice Couple January 2, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Usually you’ll only have that problem if you are cooking on too hot of a pan or too dry to start. Back off the heat a bit. As the onions cook, they’ll release more juices that will protect the garlic from getting overcooked.

I was wondering, if you don’t have cumin, what can you substitute in its place? I really want to make this recipe =)

Reply

38 White on Rice Couple January 11, 2010 at 9:04 pm

Even if you leave the cumin out in this recipe, it will still be tasty. Almost any common dried herb or spice can be used instead of the cumin. They each will give their own nuance to the recipe, so feel free to substitute what you like. If you like basil or oregano, try that in the recipe. Replace the cumin with some paprika for a little smokiness. Explore the tastes and effects of different spices then own the recipe!

I just made this. Fabulous recipe. I added honey and a bit of brown sugar to the sauce. I also marinated the chicken in oil, honey, green onions, and garlic for about 3 hours.

wow, what a great dish for a party! just one question, does it matter what kind of vinegar I use? something milder (like rice vinegar) or something more tangy?

Yoko- it doesn’t really matter, so long as you use the vinegar that you like. have fun!

45 Carlos February 19, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Wow. Quite possibly the best wings I’ve ever had. Made them once a couple weeks ago and they were gobbled up (mostly by my wife and I as we couldn’t wait until we had to serve them to our guests). Making them again for a party this weekend… though now I know better – I’m making a double batch! I also made some honey garlic wings to offer up some choice for those with more sensitive taste buds. It’s great that these are baked too – people couldn’t believe it!

Just made this. It is indeed amazing sauce!! I only had chicken breast at the moment but this sauce made my boring chicken breast very exciting! Also I didn’t have onion so used chopped celery instead. Thanks for sharing great recipe!

can i make the sauce one day ahead of time? or would it taste better if the sauce was “fresh”?

Reply

51 White on Rice Couple April 1, 2011 at 7:30 pm

You can easily make the sauce a day or two ahead of time. Just keep it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

Hihi
I will like to try this receipe but think my local market do not have sriracha hot sauce. I live in singapore and the supermarts have lots of variety of other chilli sauce like garlic chilli sauce ( the Mc Donald type) thai sweet chilli sauce ,normal chilli sauce ( taste the same as those at KFC), and i have my home made chilli paste ( chilli padi blended with garlic with some sesame oil)

Which one should i use in place of the sriracha hot sauce?

I so look forward to trying out this receipe =))

Hi, I just discovered your website am in love with all the pictures/recipes. I started salivating over this particular chicken wing recipe and am planning on making it soon! Do you mind if I feature this on my blog and linking it to your website? Keep up the great work.

55 Nan January 22, 2012 at 7:57 pm

That sauce sounds wonderful. I make my wings by browning them on both sides under the broiler, putting them into a wide crockpot, pour the sauce on top, cook 3 honors on high. It is important not to have too much sauce to begin with for this method to work. Then I broil them again to crisp them up. Usually For the sauce I squeeze honey over the wings in the pot, then hoisin sauce, then bottled BBQ sauce. I am going to try your sauce next.

These wings were EPIC! I’m a total Sriracha fiend, so these were right up my alley and a real crowd pleaser. I shared on my blog with a big ol’ link back to you because, well, you guys are awesome! Thanks for the recipe and cheers!

57 J. Jones February 6, 2012 at 9:33 am

WAY too much ketchup in this recipe! For actual hot wings, I strongly recommend flipping the ratio, and using 1/2 cup sriracha to 1/4 cup ketchup.

These wings were tasty, but were not very hot.

58 Krista October 27, 2012 at 8:00 am

I made these last night for friends, and my food snob boyfriend….everyone LOVED them. Including me. We all thought they were pretty spicy (and by pretty spicy I mean perfect) with the suggested ketchup/sriracha ratio. I want to dip everything in the sauce. Thanks for sharing.

My boyfriend and I found this recipe when trying to plan for our NYE party. We had so many dishes already planned out that we decided to save this one for later. We just tried it out this week and it was fantastic! The amount of Sriracha was spot on! I love to look at food blogs and yours is one of my favorites! Keep all the fantastic recipes comin’ guys! Thanks so much.

I live in France, where one doesn’t really eat chicken wings on their own, but I’ve be buying chicken, using up the other parts, and freezing the wings. I saw that you had several wings recipes, and wanted to try ont out. I started with this one, and it was a big success (I didn’t have ketchup, but I made an improvised ketchup), we happily ate everything, getting our fingers and cheeks covered in sauce. Delicious!

Hi! Hubby asked for a hot wing type sauce for chicken tonight and I found your site and recipe via google. Instead of wings I used chicken strips which I dredged in seasoned flour, then egg, then cornmeal and panfried in bit of canola oil and butter. Then I tossed in with the sauce (add the cilantro as a reader mentioned) and served on rice. Holey moley. Freakin’ awesome! I’ll be bookmarking your site and writing this recipe in my ‘holy recipe book’! Thanks so much! I got a ton of brownie points with the hubs tonight! ;-)
