We made honey sriracha chicken wings for the first time over the holidays. They were so hot, spicy and delicious. I adapted this recipe from Food Wishes on Youtube. His recipe called for sesame oil and rice wine vinegar, which I didn’t have on hand, and made the recipe without. Modifications aside, Bae and I were really happy with our version. I updated my grocery list to include both sesame oil and rice wine vinegar, so that next time I can make these wings according to its original recipe. If I do, I’ll make another post about it.
