Sriracha Chicken Wings

Recipe created by Jenn's Food Journey

Ingredients:
20 wing and/or drummettes
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (if that's too spicy, use 1/2 tsp cayenne and 1 tsp pepper)
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup Srircha Hot Chili Sauce
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon honey

Directions:
Put the wings into a large bowl and season with the garlic powder, salt, and cayenne.  Toss; making sure that all the pieces are seasoned.  Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes but I recommend 2 hours.

In a small bowl, mix together the butter, Sriracha, lime juice, and honey.  Pour 3 tablespoons over the chicken wings; tossing to coat.  Cover and return to the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place the chicken on a wire rack that has been placed in a cookie sheet (you can put it directly on the cookie sheet too, I just think they cook more evenly raised up on the rack).  Bake for 18 minutes, rotating sheet half way through.

Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.  Remove the chicken from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.  Put chicken back in large bowl, pour the remaining Sriracha sauce over the chicken and toss to coat.  When grill is ready, place the wings directly over the fire and grill for another 10 minutes, turning halfway through.  Remove from grill and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.......Enjoy!
