The Superbowl is just days away and Im so excited for the food!
Dont get me wrong, I love football and Ill be watching the game this Sunday, but with my Ravens not on the big screen Ill be focused on one thing- the wings. Not just any wings will do, the Superbowl calls for bold flavors and these Grilled Honey Sriracha Wings bring the heat!
Want to know the secret to making the BEST wings youve ever tasted?
There are two things that set these wings apart from the rest. First, they are grilled so the outer layer gets a nice crispy sear without drying out the meat. Second, its all about the sauce! My hubby has created some phenomenal wing sauces over our many years as football fans, but Ive got to say, this honey sriracha sauce takes the cake. I love the combination of sweet and heat (my mouth is watering just thinking about it), and this thick sauce packs a punch of Superbowl-worthy flavor.
Who are you cheering for this Sunday? Or like me, are you go team food?!
Either way, these Grilled Honey Sriracha Wings are sure to win over your hungry crowd!
- 18 chicken wings
- 1 TBS chili powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp cumin
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- Pinch of dried chipotle pepper flakes
- 1 stick salted butter
- ¼ cup Sriracha sauce
- 3 TBS Frank’s Red Hot
- 2 TBS honey (3 TBS if you like a slightly sweeter sauce)
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- Pinch of chipotle pepper flakes (to taste)
- First combine all of the spice rub ingredients into a large Ziploc bag and then add the wings. Shake until the wings are coated with the spice rub, place bag into the fridge for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, grill the wings until they’re fully cooked and the skin has a nice char to it.
- To make the Honey Sriracha Sauce melt a stick of butter over medium heat in a small sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients, stir until combined. Add any additional honey or spices according to your taste preferences. Remove from heat and let cool to room temp. It will thicken as it cools, allowing it to coat and stick to the wings.
- Once the wings have cooked and the sauce has cooled, pour ¾ of the sauce into a large mixing bowl, reserve the remaining sauce for dipping. Add the wings to the bowl and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately to a hungry football crowd.
