Friday Faves and Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

by heidi on June 22, 2012

It’s officially here. Summer!

Sriracha Chicken Wings are my favorite spicy snack

The best part: swimming with my Smudge, backyard barbeques and playing outside ’til the night sky glistens with stars as the moon crests the mountain tops.

The worst part: The longest day of the year has officially come and gone. June 20, my dad’s birthday marked summer solstice and the march toward the days all food bloggers dread: winter. Which equals shorter days. Which means come dinner time we’ve lost all the natural sunlight to shoot our beautiful food.

But that’s a long time away yet and we have much to savor and stock up on.

Like my Honeyed Sriracha Chicken Wings recipe that are sweet and spicy with a flavor that’s rounded out rather than blistering. Kind of like my summer so far.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Yield: serves 4

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings


For the wings:
3 pounds chicken wings, skin removed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
ground pepper
For sauce:
6 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sriracha
2 tablespoons honey
1 lime, juiced
1/2 orange, juiced
3 tablespoons cilantro


  1. In a large plastic freezer bag combine chicken wings, vegetable oil, coriander, salt and pepper. Place in refrigerator and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Bring grill to medium-high heat, place chicken on grill, and grill for 18-20 minutes, turning wings every 4 minutes or so.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add sriracha, honey and juices and mix well to combine.
  4. Remove wings from grill. In a large bowl combine wings and sauce, garnish with cilantro and serve.

On another note, the next issue of Foodie Crush is coming along nicely and includes so many amazing bloggers who have contributed. I can’t wait to share their recipe creations, stories and insight with you. Do you want to know who some of the food bloggers are that will be featured or would you rather be surprised? Here’s a sneak peak…can you take a guess who might be featured?


And now for a few Friday faves:

1. Are you a food blogger and want to be featured in the summer issue of Foodie Crush mag? Then this Friday Fave is for you! Just send me a photo of your favorite kitchen tool snapped with your camera phone. It’s so super easy and will take all of about 2 minutes of your non-blogging/non-tweeting/non-recipe developing time. Click! Check out the deets here.

2. Are you on Google +? I am and I would love to extend my circles so look me up will you? Last week I mentioned Irvin of Eat the Love‘s blog post that explains why Google+ is essential for bloggers, and I think its worth another mention since so many of us are still getting our toes wet.

3. Quote of the week, “I predict future humans will look back on food-splattered cookbooks the way we look back on medieval folks who changed their underwear only every few months or so.” What else does L.V. Anderson thinks about the future of cookbooks? (via Twitter @RamiblingEpicure)  Looking forward to your comments below.

4. For you obsessive Instagrammers: who want to see your pals Instagram timelines all in one collective spot or the ability to browse on your computer? Here’s two desktop versions to give a try: Followgram or my new favorite, which provides stats of which pics your friends like the best. If you’re that kinda stat obsesssed person…I personally don’t know anyone like that :)

5. And finally, set aside a full day and discover a new food blogger favorite thanks to Sommer with A Spicy Perspective‘s mega food blogger blog roll. Excellent line-up Sommer!

Happy Friday friendlies!

Can’t wait for the new issue to come out. And it’s totally true about winter — it suddenly gets so hard to snap a good shot. And, thanks for sharing Eat the Love’s info — I started following him earlier this week after your initial posting.

Isn’t it such a let down when summer finally “arrives” yet the days are already getting shorter?!?! Oh well, keep enjoying those blissful summer moments I guess. I’ll for sure be enjoying some sriracha wings in my near future. Great post!
