Spicy Baked Chicken Wings by Diverse Dinners

These Spicy Baked Chicken Wings are lick your lips tasty. No dip needed, unless dips are your thing. For game day I would serve these bad boys on a platter, drowning in sauce, with some fries on the side perhaps. They’re good on their own though, or aside any other game day snack you might have planned.

Did I say that I love chicken wings? Well I do. I’m a little saddened however, that I am unable share a list of the restaurants that in my opinion serve great wings. I’m going to have to document my wings purchases going forward and perhaps in six months, share my top five restaurants. This project will not be a stretch, I’ve done much of the research already, I just need to document it.

Sriracha is the one and only spicy ingredient in this recipe. It’s a sauce made of a mixture of chillies, vinegar, salt and sugar, as a result, Sriracha has great balance and works well with chicken wings.
