Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wings

Sriracha sauce is good on just about anything but an especially good complement to wings. In the midst of football season, I would hope to have these wings with every game. However, I may be bias since Sriracha is my favorite hot sauce, but I imagine I’m not alone with that feeling. 🙂

I stumbled upon this recipe from Gastronomic Nomad while looking through wing recipes a couple years ago and love the spice with a bit of sweetness. Gastronomic Nomad also served these wings with a cucumber raita, but I think delicious as is. The raita is helpful to quell some of the spice if some guests prefer less spicy wings. I have made these wings a few times and always turn out finger-licking good, just start watching the chicken after 25 minutes to make sure they don’t burn. Serve with some cucumber and beer and you’re set!
