Oven Baked Wings

Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great day! We slept in and spent a few hours at the pool. Then we came home and relaxed. Well, the girls read books and watched TV, and I binge watched more Entourage; almost done with season 4!

My family loves wings. So tonight I baked an entire package (flats and drumsticks separated by my hubby) with a little salt and pepper and coated in a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a 375 oven for almost an hour. Then I coated a little over half of them in a sweet chili sauce. The rest I left plain for the girls.

I also made some egg rolls and yellow rice. Perfect Friday night dinner! No wing was left uneaten. I consider that a success!




Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Phew! What a long week! Happy Friday! Wings were on the menu tonight. Chicken wings were on sale at the grocery store, so I decided to try a recipe for honey sriracha wings from Food Network. My family LOVED them!!!

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings (from Food Network)


2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for the pan
2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
I added 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
For the Sauce:
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup honey, plus more for drizzling
1/4 cup Sriracha (Asian chile sauce)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil. Dry the chicken wings with paper towels and place in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the melted butter, granulated garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour the mixture over the wings and toss well to coat. Spread the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the wings until browned and crisp, 45 to 55 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice and stir until the mixture bubbles gently. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Carefully remove the wings from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the wings and gently toss to coat. Transfer the wings to a serving platter and drizzle with more honey; serve with lime wedges.
