My husband has always been a fan of chicken wings and loves to try different flavors. Though he is a big fan of spicy buffalo chicken wings, I tend to prefer the sweeter flavors, such as teriyaki or honey BBQ. Recently, our girl has become a fan of not only chicken wings, but also spicy flavors. She is even eating foods that are spicier than I can handle!
A condiment that both my husband and baby girl are adding to their foods these days is sriracha sauce. They like to add sriracha to their spaghetti, rice, and even eggs. When I thought about making chicken wings to showcase as an easy game time recipe, I knew that a combination of sriracha and teriyaki would be perfect for our family! The flavors blend well, making this sriracha teriyaki chicken wings recipe neither too spicy nor too sweet. Check out how easy these wings are to make and enjoy them during an upcoming game with friends and family!
Sriracha Teriyaki Wings Recipe
*Makes 28 wings
- chicken wings
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 Tbsp Sriracha sauce
- 1/2 cup soy sauce (I used low-sodium, so if using regular, you’ll probably need less.)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 2 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- Prepare chicken wings by cutting into separate drumettes and wingettes, discarding the wing tips (if necessary). Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
- Prepare Sriracha Teriyaki sauce by combining Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, 1/2 cup water, honey, ginger, and rice vinegar in a small pot. Heat over low heat until ingredients are thoroughly mixed and honey dissolves, stirring frequently.
- Separately, mix cornstarch with an additional 3 Tbsp of water and pour into pot. Stir to mix.
- Increase heat to medium and cook until sauce thickens, stirring frequently.
- Pour 1/2 of sauce over chicken wings and hand-mix to cover evenly. Spread wings out on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
- Bake for about 25 minutes in a 425° F preheated oven.
- Once wings are thoroughly cooked, use a brush to spread more sauce over them.
My whole family enjoyed these sriracha teriyaki wings, though my husband would have probably preferred more spice! But, in my opinion, the sriracha added just enough kick that it didn’t overpower the flavor of the wings. Plus, our 4-year-old was able to eat them without feeling like they were too hot! That’s a major win for us!
