baked honey sriracha chicken wings

Apparently, “chicken” is the most searched-for food item on the internet for like, forever.

Little wonder, since chicken is so readily available in most parts of the world, and you can cook chicken in so many different ways.

Ever since the LAM discovered the wonders of chicken wing mid-joints, I could no longer exchange my drumlets for his mid-joints. 

Very sad.

So I now buy packets of mid-joints. In this way, there is no need for us to fight over the mid-joints any more.

And since these wings (mid-joints, drumlets, whatever) are oven-baked, you (and I both) can feel a lot less guilty about eating 5 at once.

But hey, who’s counting! 😛

Here’s how to cook these very tasty wings.

In a bowl, whisk together salt (I prefer kosher, but sea salt will be nice too), ground black pepper, smoked paprika and baking powder.

Add this to the chicken pieces, and mix to combine.

Lay the chicken, skin side down, on a lined and lightly greased roasting tray.

Bake at 180°C for 1 hour, turning them over half way. You may need to roast the chicken for a shorter/ longer time, depending on how hot your oven gets, so keep an eye on the chicken. You are looking for the chicken to turn golden brown.

In a large bowl, whisk together honey, Sriracha, rice vinegar and sesame oil. (For home made Sriracha sauce, see here.)

Add the cooked chicken to the sauce and stir to coat.

Sprinkle sesame seeds and chopped spring onion and serve immediately.

All I can say is, make more.
