Sriracha Hot Wings!

A great twist to the traditional hot wing!

Serves 2-3

INGREDIENTS

20 chicken wings (defrosted, already split at joint)

Marinade:

1 lime (juiced)

2 tsp sugar

1 tbsp paprika

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tbsp salt (kosher)

Sauce:

  • 1/2 Cup Sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Honey (or to taste)
  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Lime Zest
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

DIRECTIONS

1. In a gallon sized ziplock bag, place chicken and all marinade ingredients.  Seal bag and throughly coat the wings in marinade and marinate at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, place chicken on baking sheet (with wire rack, optional).  Cook wings for about 15-20 minutes until almost done.

3.  While chicken is baking, heat a deep fryer to 400 degrees. (You may skip this step if you wish to finish wings in the oven.  If so, place wings under broiler after 15 minutes, until crisp or desired doneness.)

4. In a sauce pot, heat all sauce ingredients over medium heat until heated thoroughly but not bubbling.  Remove from heat.

5. Once chicken is almost done, place wings (in batches if needed) in deep fryer and flash fry for 3-4 minutes or until crisp. Remove and drain.

6.  In a large bowl, place wings and sauce.  Toss until evenly coated.

Options: Garnish with cilantro and thinly sliced jalapenos.
