Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Baked chicken wings coated with honey-sriracha sauce.  Sticky, sweet and mildy spicy.

You know when you make an excellent dish when you want to take photos again, but you realized its too late.

I think some of you are aware that I love Sriracha. But honestly, I haven’t tried using it as is. I love Sriracha-based sauces or dips. I love anything with Sriracha on it. Honey, on the other hand, I haven’t tried cooking or baking with it. I have honey, but I usually use it in dips and on smoothies.

I prepared the sauce according to the instructions below and coated the chicken wings. The smell is just beyond amazing that I could just dive in into the sauce. I prepped my props and I was very happy with the photos. Of course, one of the awesome things of being a food blogger is you get to enjoy the fruit of your labor.

You enjoy. You enjoy. And you enjoy… without even realizing that you can make the dish yummier and more appetizing. The light bulb over my head sparked or let me say gave me fireworks when I thought of broiling the chicken wings. Ugh! The sun is down by that time. Why can’t the light bulb turn its light on at daytime? Because it’s daytime and it’s saving energy? 😀 Wrong time to save. Well, it’s too late. No natural light and I hate taking photos without it.

However, I proceed with the broiling thing… er, not broiling… I placed the chicken wings inside a oven toaster and I did my thing. 😉 It came out incredible. I could just slap my face by not being able to think about it when the sun is up. Blogger problems. 😐

This Sriracha Chicken Wings is beyond amazing. It has sticky, sweet, mildly spicy sauce.

The smell alone is to die for. The chicken wings is first baked, then smothered with the super delicious sauce. My strong suggestion, go ahead and broil them after coating them with the sauce until they get little charred. Alternatively, you can just grill them directly outside.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 kg chicken wings, split, remove tips
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 tsp salt

For the Sauce:

  • 5 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • lime wedges, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a large baking sheet with foil and grease the foil.
  2. Pat dry the chicken, set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix oil, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add pat-dried chicken wings to this mixture, mixing to coat well.
  4. Place coated chicken in the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until chicken is browned and crisp.
  6. Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a small saucepan with low-medium heat, melt butter. Add the remaining sauce ingredients (except for lime wedges, they are to be used for later) and stir constantly. Cook until mixture starts to bubble. Turn off the heat and remove from the heat, set aside.
  7. When the chicken wings are done, remove them from the oven and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce all over your chicken (you can put everything or set aside for dipping sauce).
  8. Optional, but highly recommended: Place your chicken wings on a cleaned baking sheet lined with foil, broil them till they get charred. You can also do this is an oven toaster like I did. It works really well. 😉 But I did it after I took a photo 😦
  9. Serve immediately and serve with lime wedges.


To grill outside: coat the chicken with some sauce and grill until cooked/charred. Save some for basting or dipping.

  1. I will admit I had to Google Sriracha sauce, but I love the sound of it and these chicken wings look so good! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

  2. Hey Jhuls, just wanted to let you know that I’ve made this sauce 3 times now and it’s my go-to homemade wing sauce. It has the absolute perfect amount of spice and sweetness – love, love, love it!

    1. Thank you so much, Lily. This made my day! I am really happy that you loved what I shared. This is so far my favorite sauce, too. Thanks, Lily and have a safe day! xx

  3. Hey Jhuls, just made the wings are they were delicious! I absolutely loved the sauce. The only thing I would do differently is bake them a little bit longer because my husband likes super crispy wings. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipe:) xx

      1. Thanks for the tip Jhuls, my husband and I dug right in and inhaled them, so I didn’t even think of snapping a photo, next time for sure:)

  4. Your chicken wings look and sound lipsmackingly delicious with or without the sunlight. Coincidentally the one over my head looks like a distant cousin of yours. Loves to shine brightest during dusk. That’s the reason most of my dishes are shot with indoor lighting. But that’s how it works with me. Can’t help 😉

  5. You are so cute! I always do the same thing. I end up making something and realizing “YES THIS IS PERFECT” but then I look at my surroundings and it’s pitch black and dark. I have such a hard time taking pictures in the dark. The food just doesn’t look as pretty… But yours look so nice!

    I also love the simplicity of this. I could easily make this even at my boyfriend’s house, and he has basically no ingredients. 😛

    1. I have taken this during day time. Was planning to take photos of the ones I broiled (aka toasted), but it was already dark outside, so I just enjoyed my meal and planned to do the shoot another time. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. This dish is super delicious! I hope you can try it. Have a lovely weekend!

  6. I love sweet and spicy wings and I have a huge pack of uncooked chicken wings from Costco in the freezer, so this is perfect, thanks so much for sharing:)

    1. This is one of the dish I will make over and over again. Just fell in love with this. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, dear friend! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. xx
