Come on. There is no such thing as tailgating without wings, right?

First up, we have Sriracha chicken wings (a tailgating staple in all 50 states). After all, there’s no successful tailgate without chicken wings right?

Sriracha chicken wings

Here’s what you’re going to need!

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings (or more once you get good at this)
  • Keep two tablespoons of unsalted/melted butter handy
  • One tablespoon of vegetable oil and an additional teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Some recommend kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. We’ve found seasonings may vary.
  • Chopped fresh cilantro leaves (preferably a tablespoon)
  • Sesame seeds can be used for garnish, but they aren’t necessary.

Note: For the honey glaze, you’ll need five tablespoons of unsalted butter, a tablespoon of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of Sriracha, lime juice, and one tablespoon of soy sauce.


Okay, it’s time to work. These wings aren’t going to cook themselves!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. While your oven is heating, to make the glaze, melt your butter in a small saucepan and do so over medium heat. Whisk in your all-purpose for about one minute or until it’s lightly browned.
  3. Stir in the honey, soy sauce, lime juice, and Sriracha. Bring everything to a boil, and simmer until everything has thickened slightly. This should take about two minutes
  4. In a larger bowl, combine your wings, your butter, the garlic powder, the vegetable oil, and the salt and pepper.
  5. Grab your baking sheet. Place the wings and bake for 25-30 minutes but be sure to turn at the midway point. Brush the wings with your Sriracha glaze and broil for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until you’ve achieved a satisfactory level of crispiness. Voila! We’re in business!

Serve after garnishing with the cilantro and sesame seeds.
