Lately I’ve developed a regular craving for chicken wings.  I don’t think it has anything to do with the project I’ve been working in Buffalo, but perhaps it does.

Unlike traditional Buffalo wings, however, I sometimes like a little bit of sweet with my heat.  After some experimentation, I’ve concocted this easy recipe for sriracha honey wings.  They aren’t so spicy – more like sweet with a tiny bit of afterburn!

Siriracha Honey Wings

The sriracha adds the heat while the honey brings in the sweet and the soy adds the saltiness.  The cooking technique gives the crispy consistency of fried wings without actually frying them.  My favorite part of cooking the wings on aluminum foil is that clean up is easy!
