Ingredients

For the Wings:

  • 2 lbs. chicken wings split at the joints, tips removed
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Juice of one lime

Cornstarch Slurry

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

For the Wings:

  • Preheat oven to 400. Place rack in baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil. Place wings on rack and brush with vegetable oil.
  • Sprinkle wings with granulated garlic, salt, and pepper. Bake wings for 20 minutes, remove pan and turn wings over.
  • Brush the other side with oil and sprinkle with granulated garlic, salt, and pepper. Place back in oven for 25 minutes. If using two baking sheets, alternate oven racks when you put the pans back in the oven.
  • Remove pans after 25 minutes and dip wings in sauce. Place pans back in oven for 10 minutes.

For sauce:

  • Melt the butter with sesame oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and stir for 20-30 seconds. Add honey, Sriracha, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and lime juice. Stir 1 tablespoon water with the 2 teaspoons cornstarch to make a slurry.
  • Whisk the cornstarch slurry into the sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook 3-4 minutes, just until slightly thickened.

Notes

Tips for the Best Honey Sriracha Wings
  • At the end of the baking time, you can broil the wings for a couple of minutes to get them crispy.
  • Sauce can be made up to two days in advance and refrigerated until ready to use. Warm slightly before using.
