My husband used to have an obsession of trying chicken wings in all different restaurants. And I tried multiple recipes till I got to this tasty one! Now, my husband thinks that my seasoned sriracha wings are the best!
Are you obsessed with chicken wings or know someone who is? Or are you at least interested in trying something new that you’re family or mate will like? My advice is you try this honey garlic sriracha wings recipe.
I season these extremely tasty chicken wings with garlic, onion, and honey. Flavor them with pepper and paprika to give them their spicy taste. Not to forget the crispy outer layer, as I use the air fryer here, but you can of course use oil if you want to.
I marinade my honey garlic wings with the special sauce made from soy, garlic, honey, sriracha, and brown sugar. You can serve it with different dips like cheddar cheese, spicy mayonnaise, or anything else that you prefer.

Tips to Use
If you want your chicken wings to be extra crispy, add more baking powder to the coating.
The wings must be dry for a better, crispier result. If your wings are wet, pat them dry with a towel, and keep in your fridge uncovered for 1-2 hours.
If you want your wings to have extra flavor, make sure to marinate them with whatever seasoning you have. Marinating them overnight will give you the ultimate taste. Of course, the seasoning you choose makes a big difference, so make sure to keep it simple and tasty at the same time.
