Sriracha Honey Chicken Wings

I love chicken wings.  The deep fried crispy skin and hot and spicy buttery sauce make chicken wings so addictive and delicious.  Buffalo Wing sauce is traditionally made with a Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce and butter mixture, but I’ve always thought about making my own Buffalo Wing sauce using Sriracha Hot Sauce.  While I was at the grocery store, I saw good price on chicken wings and decided to go home and play with the recipe.

While mixing in the Sriracha Hot Sauce to the melted butter in the saucepan, I was thinking about what I can add to the sauce to balance the spiciness of the Sriracha Hot Sauce.  I decided to add some Honey to it to balance out the flavors.  Initially I thought that the honey made the sauce a little too sweet for my taste, but since Jane and my sister in law loved it so much, I think this was a quite successful dish. 

Note:  If you want the wing sauce to be hotter, add more Sriracha.  If you want it to be less sweet, add less honey.

Ingredients:
12 wings (drumettes and wings)
2-3 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoon of unsalted butter
3 tablespoon Siracha
2 teaspoon Honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar

Steps:

  1. Put Chicken Wings in a bowl and mix 1-2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and set aside.  
  2. Pre-heat deep fryer at 375 degrees
  3. On MEDIUM heat, add butter, Sriracha, Honey, Rice Wine Vinegar, 1 teaspoon of salt to a small saucepan and let the butter melt and stir the flavors together
  4. When deep fryer is ready, fry 6 wings at a time for approximately 8-10 minutes or until wings are crispy and golden.
  5. Put Chicken Wings in a mixing bowl and add a few teaspoons of wing sauce until wings are evenly coated.  Shake the wings in the sauce and plate.
