Sticky Sriracha Chicken Wings

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 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 sauce with our different bottles of sriracha hot sauce.
Spicy Asian Chicken Wings with Sriracha
Yes, there are many so many different bottles of sriracha hot sauce out there. 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! It’s easy to make homemade 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. For this recipe 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. This will 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!
Happy New Year! diane and todd

Sriracha Chicken Wings Recipe
For the Wings
- 2 pounds chicken wings , rinsed & patted dry
- kosher salt , to season wings
- ground black pepper , to season wings
For the Sauce
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic , finely minced
- 1 small small onion , minced (@ 1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup Sriracha sauce or any chili hot sauce (or more for a spicier sauce)
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 teaspoon fish sauce or soy sauce (choose fish sauce, it tastes better!)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Cook the Wings: Preheat oven to 425° F (220°C). Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
- On prepared baking sheet pan, spread chicken wings out in one even layer (we don't coat our wings with oil before baking, but you can if you want. We find that the oil just makes the wings greasier. The wings release enough fat already). Season chicken wings with salt and pepper.
Bake for about 45-50 minutes until golden brown, flipping the wings halfway through baking, after the first 25 minutes or so.
Make the sauce while the wings cook (or before): Heat sauce pan on medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and then add onion and garlic. Continue stirring the onions and garlic until they are golden brown, but not burnt. Then add ketchup, sriracha hot sauce, vinegar, fish/soy sauce and ground cumin.
Stir well and let simmer on low heat 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! And oh, don't forget the beer!
