Honey Sriracha Wings

9 Apr

This recipe comes from Copicut Farms, the excellent chicken purveyors at my local farmers market. Not only were these delicious, but dare i say, they were beautiful. they really solved the problem i was having with a run of too pale buffalo wings.  The cooking method and soy/honey combos lends a rich brown coloring. By the way, don’t make a second batch without cleaning the pan, because man i did, and the honey got scorched on to my pan, and i ended up taking off a layer of my cast iron in cleaning.

  • 6 chicken drumsticks or 6 full wings (12 wing pieces)
  • 1/4 soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • juice and zest for 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 green onion, slice thinly for garnish
  • toasted sesame seeds for topping (optional)

To make

  1. Season chick with salt and pepper to taste. if using wings, cut each into wing piece (see diagram below). Keep drumette and wingette, discard tip.
  2. whisk together soy sauce, lime juice, zest, balsamic, honey, sriracha, chili flakes, garlic and ginger, set aside.
  3. preheat oven to 400.
  4. heat cast iron over med heat and add olive oil. Lightly brown chick on all sides. Spoon half sauce over each piece of chick and use tongs to turn the chick pieces so it absorbs the sauce all over. Allow to cook in skillet for another 2 minutes.
  5. Place entire skillet into preheated oven, turning chick regularly with tons and adding another spoonful of the reserved half of the sauce over each piece of chicken. bake uncovered for 20-25 mins until chick is cooking through and skin is caramelized
  6. Plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, chopped green onions and cilantro.
