These are the ultimate sticky, sticky chicken wings recipe. The spicy sriracha and sweet orange blossom honey take the marinade over the top.

 

Sriracha-honey chicken wings

Is there anything more glorious than a chicken wing, so sticky it leaves a coating on your fingers, forcing you to lick them off? I think not. And these here wings are the stickiest of all the sticky wings my friends. Just take a moment to appreciate that glossy chicken wing right there. Thing of beauty, isn’t it?

So, I’ll be the first to admit that I have a bit of a thing for a chicken wing. There’s something intensely pleasurable about splitting the raw chicken wings (my inner butcher definitely comes out here) and as is the case with all chicken, the versatility is what gets me most excited. Sweet and spicy or crunchy or simply seasoned with salt and pepper and the ultimate, Korean style where you combine all the styles and get pretty much the crack version of the chicken world, I love them all.

The inspiration for this version struck when I received a glorious bottle of orange blossom honey from Melissa’s. Melissa’s is well known for their amazing range of food products and gorgeous packaging and other than eating the honey straight out of the jar, I knew I wanted to do something savoury with it. As sriracha is my current obsession , I threw some of that in there because let’s face it, sriracha makes everything better. I also added a spoonful of their chilli-ginger jam but this isn’t an essential component to the dish so can easily be omitted.

Into the oven they went with their vibrant red glaze and after a few tosses, turns and a little more basting, out they came looking like this. I mean, seriously now. It took all my will-power not to dive right in but once I did, you guys, I can’t even explain to you how freaking delicious these were. If I had a bucket-full in front of me, I would’ve scoffed the whole lot. No jokes. Serve these with copious amounts of chilled beer and many, many napkins. Trust me.

    These looks so deliciously sticky! My boys will love them. Never would have thought to use orange blossom honey. What a great idea!

      I love using different types of honey in food. And the flavour of orange blossom honey is just so delicious, it makes anything you put it in tastier.

    Made these tonight and they were awesome! Added some Presidents choice ginger marmalade in exchange for the specialty chili ginger jam and it was a perfect substitute. I also turned and basted them a few times with extra sauce I made, these are my new fave, thanks for the share!

    Hi. I made this yesterday and my husband liked it. We would only recommend some garlic in the recipe and it would be great. I really loved how easy this was and I had fun making it. Thanks so much for posting!

    Döh not everyone has access to chili and ginger jams.

      True, which is why I stated you can easily leave it out and it won’t have a massive effect on the end result. The key ingredient here is the Sriracha.

    Where does one find Melissa’s Chili Ginger jam mentioned in the Stick Sriracha wing recipe?

    thank you,

      Pamela, you can find it at the link at the bottom of the post or alternatively at one of their shops. I think they only ship in South Africa at the moment but many other stores will have something similar if you’re not based here.

    Oh yes, sticky chicken wings, I looove them. I know it’s weird, but I always lick them first. These look amazing, I never had them with such flavour combinations, the ginger jam sounds delicious.

      Hahaha. I don’t think that’s weird at all! The ginger jam makes for an awesome addition but I can guarantee you that even without it, these wings are a winner.
