Baked Honey Siracha Chicken



Coming from a girl that does NOT like super spicy, this recipe is crazy good!
I can hand some heat, mild salsa maybe even medium. As long as it is not burn your mouth so you can't taste the food hot. I want to be able to taste what I'm eating not suffer through dinner :)

Anyway, I had never purchased a bottle of Siracha til my oldest son and his family came to visit last Christmas. Actually I didn't even purchase it, they did when they did a little grocery shopping and they left it behind. So I tried it on  something, I cant even remember what now and I liked it! Who knew?

One of my favorite things to put Siracha on is re-fried beans (that I also don't like LOL) with cheese.
One day I decided to see what kind of recipes were out there and I found this super easy Honey Siracha Chicken recipe on damndelicious.net.
Hey why not ... sweet and heat! They go together nicely.

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves(YUK..BUT TO EACH THEIR OWN!)
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • For the honey Sriracha glaze
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha*
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine wings, butter, vegetable oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Brush wings with Sriracha glaze and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp and crusted.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.
