Comvita UMF Manuka Honey

Honey Sriracha Wings

By @cookathomemom

Wings

  • 1.5 - 2 lb chicken wingettes
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder

Honey Sriracha Sauce

  • ⅓ cup Comvita Manuka Honey
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha (or more, depending on your taste)
  • 1 T. coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • ½ tsp. Grated fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1 tsp. Sesame seeds
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Toppings

  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp. Sesame seeds
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 tsp. fresh cilantro

Directions

Preheat your grill to medium heat, about 350. Mix the salt, pepper and garlic powder together. In a large bowl, toss the wings with the seasonings mixture to coat them evenly. Whisk together the sauce ingredients and set aside. Lightly brush the grill with oil and place the wings on the heated grill. Allow to cook for about 20 minutes, flipping occasionally to avoid scorching or burning. Take the wings off the grill and put them into a large bowl. Don’t turn your grill off. Pour the sauce on top and toss to coat. Lightly brush oil on the grill again if needed, then return the wings to the hot grill. Cook for about 2-3 more minutes per side or until the skins crisp nicely but don’t burn. Sprinkle more sesame seeds, sliced green onion and cilantro leaves on top of the wings, squeeze some limes, and serve.

If you don’t have access to a grill, you can cook in the oven: Preheat your oven to 400. Follow directions to season your chicken, then lay on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway. Dip or brush each wing with the sauce, then return them to the oven and cook for another 5 minutes. You can finish them by broiling for 1-2 minutes to get a little more caramelization, if needed.
