Sriracha Hot Wings


I know I have mentioned we like things hot around here, about a million times right? But this is a true example of our love of all things spicy/hot. We use Sriracha like ketchup here. I mean it seriously goes on everything, OK well maybe not pancakes but there isn't much else it doesn't go on. Have you heard the Frank's Red Hot commercial with the old lady that say's, "Frank's Red Hot...I put the sh*t on everything"? Well we could easily do that commercial here, and we wouldn't even need to be paid, OK well maybe free hot sauce for life but that would be it!


In the past, my ex and I used to have people over to watch the wrestling pay-per-views. Yesssssss I know it is fake, and silly, and all of that. But it was an excuse to have a party, and whenever we had a party there was a hot wing throw down. I think the hottest wings we came up with were a 2 winger. Which meant that you could only eat 2 wings before you had to drink something. They were that hot! Oh the things we do in the name of fun.

These are by no means that hot, but they are spicier than regular hot wings. I used to use Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce before trying this. Now we will never make them any other way. This is a super simple variation of my Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings. So they are "lighter" than your typical fried hot wings. You might want to make 2 batches though because they go fast!!



Sriracha Hot Wings

2 lbs chicken wings
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 to 1 cup Sriracha sauce (found on the Asian isle of your market)

In a plastic storage bag, add the flour, cayenne, garlic powder, and salt. Shake to combine and then add the chicken wings to the bag. Seal the bag and shake until the chicken is thoroughly coated. Remove the chicken wings from the bag one at a time and place them on a baking sheet sprayed with non stick spray. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

Whisk melted butter and hot wings sauce together. Carefully dip each wing into the sauce and return to the baking sheet.

Place baking sheet on the center rack in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the coating it nice and crispy, making sure to turn the wings half way through. Remove from oven. Can be served with low calorie ranch dressing is desired. We just eat them on their own.

ENJOY!!

    1. They are hot but the kind of heat that warms your mouth not burns (like habanero)

  4. I'm going to have to find this sauce! Both hubby and my older daughter love hot, they even have little challenges between them of who can last longer eating the hot stuff, not me, I'm a wimp, lol. Thanks for sharing and I'll be featuring this at tomorrow's Thursday's Treasures.

    1. It is really really good. You can use it in small amounts, like in your fried chicken batter, and it adds just a little kick but not tons of heat. Email me your mailing address hun and I will find you ao bottle bobbiskozykitchen@gmail.com and thank you so much for the feature I am very honored :)

    1. Not really in my opinion they are spicy but not hot. Although I know everyone's heat levels are different and I admit I like things as spicy as possible :)
