SPOONFUL - Sriracha Glazed Wings

Sriracha is a hot sauce made from chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic and other spices. It originated in Si Racha, a coastal city in the Chonburi province of Eastern Thailand.

                            




Sriracha is often used as dipping sauce, as a condiment or as ingredient for other sauces. It's kinda like an asian Tabasco sauce

For this recipe, I used Sriracha as glaze for chicken wings. The dish is very similar to buffalo wings but a bit more Asian since I used Sriracha instead of Tabasco sauce.

Here is the recipe:

1 kilo chicken wings
1/2 cup Sriracha sauce
2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, TT
Ground thyme
oil for frying

1. Dry the chicken wings. Season with salt, pepper and thyme. Shallow fry in hot oil until skin turns crispy. Place in a rack to drain excess oil
2. In a bowl, mix Sriracha sauce and olive oil. Mix well.
3. Place chicken wings in a pan. Brush with Sriracha mixture on all sides.
4. Place in a preheated oven for about 5-10 minutes or until done.



Another difference of it with buffalo wings is that buffalo wings are deep fried and then dipped into hot sauce. This recipe finishes the wings in the oven, so that the skin remains crispy. If there's one thing no one likes in fried chicken it's a soggy skin.




Happy eating!
