If you like spice, you will love these sriracha-sauced chicken wings. First, wings are covered in a hot sauce coating. Next, they are baked and glazed with sriracha a second time for maximum flavor. Heat is tamed by sweet honey and apricot jam.

Ingredients

For the Chicken Wings

  • 2 Tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 3 Pounds chicken wings
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

For the Glaze

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons apricot jam
  • 2 Tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Directions

For the Chicken Wings

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with sides with heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.

In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix sriracha, oil, salt, pepper, and wings. Seal bag; shake to coat. Add flour; seal bag, and shake until wings are coated with flour. Place wings on cookie sheets.

Bake uncovered 30 minutes; turn chicken over, and rotate cookie sheets. Bake 20 to 30 minutes longer or until golden brown and juice of the chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165 degrees F).

 

For the Glaze

Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix glaze ingredients; heat to simmering over medium heat, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

In large bowl, toss wings with sauce. Serve warm.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
