We’re heading to a Super Bowl party and I really wanted to make chicken wings, the quintessential appetizer for watching football. I’ve made chicken wings many times and for me personally, I prefer naked wings, the kind with no breading. I think the key for me is a perfectly deep fried wing with a really delicious sauce. Every time we order from a wing place, I always tend to order the Asian-flavored variety. I think the sweet and spicy combination of flavors caters to me so well. I especially like the Sriracha wings from Dog Fish Head. So here’s an attempt to recreate those flavors in my own kitchen!
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serving Size: 2
2lb chicken wings, tips removed and cut into 2 pieces
1 tbsp sriracha sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp raw honey
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Vegetable oil, for deep frying
In a deep fryer, bring the oil to 375 degrees. Make sure you thoroughly pat dry all the chicken wing pieces. Cook the wings in the deep fryer for about 10 minutes. Remove the wings and allow to drain for a few minutes.
While the chicken wings are cooking, combine the sriracha, oyster sauce, soy sauce, honey and garlic in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with the sauce mixture and make sure to combine well. Serve immediately with a small side of sriracha sauce for dipping.
