Where would we be without chicken wings?
Saucy, crispy, and sometimes spicy but always delicious, the chicken wing is always there for you. Everyone loves a great chicken wing. They can be sweet, they can be spicy and they can also be dusted in special spices. There are so many great ways to prepare and enjoy chicken wings.
However, there is a HUGE misconception about chicken wings flying around; they have to be deep-fried. Nobody has a deep-fryer lying around their kitchen (okay, some people do), this factor is stopping a lot of people from making great wings at home!
“Some of the best wings I have ever tried have been baked or oven-roasted,” says Chef Len at The Pint Toronto.
We sat down with Chef Len to share one of the FOURTY amazing wing recipes at The Pint, with one caveat—they are oven-baked and not to deep-fried, so you can make these bad boys at home!
It all starts with the right ingredients. You’re going to want to run out and grab:
- 3 oz sriracha
- 3 oz honey
- 1 tsp lime juice
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp orange juice
- Parchment paper
Then, of course, it all comes down to the technique. Chef Len took us through a step-by-step process so that you can impress your friends and family at home.
- Pre-heat your oven to 375°C.
- Combine sriracha, honey, and all the juice in a medium-sized bowl and whisk them together until you get your desired consistency.
- Grab your wings (fresh or frozen) and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
- Cook the wings in the preheated oven for one hour, or until crisped and cooked through
- Let cool momentarily, then enjoy!
Our honey sriracha wings are bold and delicious. If you find them too spicy, feel free to add some more juice (whether lime, lemon, or orange) as they act as natural palette cleansers.
We hope you enjoy the wing recipe, the honey sriracha sauce is one of our most popular choices!
