Honey Sriracha Wings - An Affair from the Heart

It’s time for another Fantastical Food Fight — you know the one where we get a recipe ingredient and are challenged to make something with it?  This month, our challenge?  HONEY.

There was no question if I would be participating in this round.  I LOVE me some honey!

I have a cousin that lives in Nicolaus , California.  She has honey bees on her property, and a bee keeper friend harvests the honey and gives her bottles of it, and I am the lucky recipient of it from time to time.  It is, hands down, the best honey I have ever eaten.  I use it all of the time.

  • 2 pounds chicken wings and drummies
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium sized onion minced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2/3 cup Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Prepare the sauce: Heat the oil in a saucepan, on medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until tender, stirring often. Add in rice vinegar, Sriracha sauce and honey, bring to a low boil. Simmer for a few minutes and then remove from heat. Cool slightly. Blend with a stick blender until smooth.
  • Prepare your wings: Wash the wings and dredge them in flour. Shake off the excess flour and deep fry them in 350F oil for about 8-10 minutes. I didn't use my deep fryer -- I pan fried them in about 2" of oil for 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Place wings on paper towels to remove any excess oil, then toss them with the honey Sriracha sauce.
  • Serve with dressing and celery if desired.
