Hot + Sweet Sriracha Wings

hot + sweet sriracha wings & baked parmesan garlic wings

For the past few weeks, our date nights have been spent eating wings. Yes, wings of all types…baked parmesan garlic, maple garlic ginger, bbq, and my new current fave, hot + sweet srirarcha wings!

I just love the combination of hot and sweet! If you have a love affair with Sriracha sauce than these wings were made for you!

Making the marinade for the wings requires very little ingredients…just melted butter, soy sauce, maple syrup (can substitute with honey) and of course, Sriracha sauce! Make sure you taste along the way! Adjust the sauce to your tastes and tolerance for spice. If the sauce is too spicy, add in a few teaspoons of brown sugar and more maple syrup.

Trust me on this, it’s pretty good already. But if you want you can always leave the wings in the marinade for an hour or until you’re ready to bake them.

It wouldn’t be wing night without my favorite baked parmesan garlic chicken wings! To make these wings, season the wings with s+p and coat them in garlic, oregano, rosemary, cumin.

Bake the wings in a 425°F oven for 30-35 minutes.

Be sure to flip the wings at the halfway point…

To give the wings more color, leave the wings in the oven for a little bit longer, about 10 minutes. For the baked parmesan garlic chicken wings, toss the wings in the cheese mixture which consists of fresh basil, parmesan cheese, Lawry’s and a little olive oil. This coating is what makes these wings so savory!

This pretty much sums up our date night!

A belly full of horchata and a mouth on fire from Sriracha! We like to think of it as a fusion of two cultures + Canada :)

What’s on your menu plan for date night this week? Still working on mine!
