Alright guys… Y’all know how obsessed I am with hot wings. I’ve decided to share my recipe for these tasty baked sriracha & soy hot wings! These wings are perfect for game day (Super Bowl is just around the corner) with a perfect blend of sweetness and spiciness.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect home-made hot wing recipe for the longest time. Slowly, I have perfected this recipe. I’ve found a way to mimic the crispiness that you get from fried wings.
I start out with fresh chicken wings from my local meat market. I prefer wings that have never been frozen. However, frozen wings from the grocery store will work. Just make sure that they are fully thawed before you cook them. A good rule of thumb is 1lb per person. (1lb = 10-12 wings).
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. This high temperature helps to make the wings crispy.
I totally forgot to take a picture of this next step. However, it is probably one of the most important steps in order to end with a perfectly crispy wing.
Par boil the wings in salted water for 10-12 minutes. This will allow some of the fat to cook down. Fatty chicken wings will not crisp up in the oven like we want.
After the wings have boiled. Remove from heat and pat dry.
Next, we are going to toss the wings in a very small amount of olive oil. This is really going to help the wing reach the optimum level of crispiness!
Spread the wings out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The parchment paper will prevent the wings from sticking to the baking sheet. Then season with a little salt and pepper.
Bake the wings for 30-40 mins. The time will depend on your particular oven.
While the wings are baking I make the sauce.
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of sriracha sauce
Once the wings are cooked throughout and have started to crisp remove from oven. Now turn on your broiler.
Toss the baked wings with the sauce that you just made. Be generous.
Arrange the sauced wings back on a baking sheet and place under preheated broiler. Keep an eye on the wings to be sure that they do not burn. The high heat from the broiler will reduce the sugar in the sauce. This will also add the the level of crispiness that we are looking for.
I like to sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top to complete the dish.
Finally, enjoy your delicious home-cooked Sriracha & soy hot wings.
