Everyone knows chicken wings, right? But do you know Sriracha sauce? It is gorgeous. It is quite hot and sweet and unlike tabasco it really tastes great.
For us it is quite a tradition to eat KFC when watching Super Bowl. Does anyone else do that? since the season is about to start at September 11th, and the opening game of the season takes place between thursday and friday here (which is Carolina Panthers at Denver Broncos) we thought we might introduce you to the great sriracha chicken wings.
We both really like American Football, soccer not so much. The bad thing about it is just that it is Sunday evening and night here, but thanks to Ran NFL we can always watch a lot even in Germany. And thanks to Franzi from Dynamitecakes we even attend a Fantasy Football league. We are so excited about this. As usual we want the Seattle Seahawks to win and be part of next year’s super bowl, but we’ll see.
Some games never seem to end at all. So a small snack is not the worst thing here. We love chicken wings for such a snack. And we kind of think that it goes perfectly with football.
Here’s the recipe and it is for 2 peeps.
[columns size="1/2" last="false"]
- 8-10 chicken wings
- 1 can of corn
- 1-2 spring onion(s)
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tiny piece of ginger
- 2-3 tbsp honey
- 4 tbsp sriracha sauce
- 1/2 -1 tbsp soy sauce
- juice of one lime
- juice of half a lemon
- salt / pepper
- some vegetable oil

- First, pre-heat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Then, mix oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss the chicken wings in the bowl. Now put them on a baking tray and leave them there for about 15 minutes.
- In the meantime, melt the butter in a pot and add the grated ginger and garlic as soon as the butter is liquid. Now add the honey, Sriracha sauce, soy sauce and juice of the lime and let it boil. IMPORTANT: none of these ingredients should come directly from the fridge. The ingredients need to have about the same temperature, otherwise it wouldn't work.
- Now, put half of the sauce you just made in a bowl and add the chicken wings. Stir it well and put them back on the tray for another 10 minutes of tanning in the oven. Time always depends on how large your wings are.
- Get another pot and add the corn, salt and pepper. Let it warm up and as soon as it is ready, take it off the heat, add the juice of half a lemon and a chopped spring onion.
- Put the chicken wings in the pot with the rest of the sauce and serve it with the corn.
Does your mouth start to water as well as you see those chicken wings? Hurry to the oven before the season starts 😉
WE got the idea from a youtube video of Donal Skehan. It is really great, but we just changed a few things, basically its almost the same, though.
