Sriracha Week 2016 – Garlic Sriracha Wings

It’s National Sriracha Sauce Week! Here’s our to-die-for Sriracha Garlic Wings recipe. Sriracha sauce, crispy chicken wings, and tons of garlic make these hot and savory wings the *best* chicken wings we’ve ever cooked!

Sriracha Garlic Wings Recipe

Sriracha garlic wings.
The wings are first marinated, then baked for 20-30 minutes before being deep fried to crisp them up. Then, you toss them in the Sriracha, butter, cilantro, garlic and lime sauce before serving. Yum!!!
We’ll repeat the recipe at the end of this post.

The basics:

  • 4 pounds chicken wings, cut up (serves 4)
  • 1-2 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying

For the marinade:

  • 1/8 cup ground coriander (2 Tbs)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil(2 Tbs)

Step 1. In a large zip-lock bag, as seen above, combine coriander, cumin, salt and olive oil. Toss in the wings and massage the bag to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Though the volume of the marinade seems small and barely coats the wings, it is critical to the success of this recipe.

Step 2.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place wings in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for about 30 minutes, until wings are firm, but not done. (They’ll finish cooking in the deep-fryer). Remove them from the oven and place on a platter to dry before frying.

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Hot Sriracha chili sauce (or to taste)
  • 3/4 stick (6 tbl) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced

Step 3. In a clean bowl, blend cilantro, minced garlic, lime zest and juice, and melted butter. Add 1/2 cup Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, combine and set aside

Step 4.Working in small batches, deep-fry wings until crispy and browned, 2-4 min. Drain briefly on paper towels, then toss the hot wings in the sauce. Let the wings sit for 2-5 minutes before serving so the flavors soak into the wings.

Step 5.Serve hot, on a platter with your favorite side dishes.
