Sriracha Honey Lime Chicken Wings

This is one of my favorite recipes that I came up with. Chicken wings in a spicy, sweet, tangy sauce. They are great for a party, for watching a ball game, or just for dinner.

Sriracha Honey Lime Chicken Wings

2 lbs chicken wingettes and drumbettes (Hate bones? Use chicken breasts tenders)
1 1/2 c flour
1 TBSP salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp ground paprika
1/2 tsp ground cayenne
2 c vegetable oil to fry with

In a large, heavy bottomed skillet or sauce pan, heat up oil over medium high heat, to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together flour and seasonings. Dredge the chicken in the flour. When the oil reaches 350 degrees F, fry the chicken in batches, about 6 wings at a time. Fry for about 15-20 minutes total, until brown and chicken cooked through. Once cooked through, toss in the wing sauce and serve immediately.

Sriracha Honey Lime Sauce

1 stick butter
2 TBSP Sriracha hot sauce
1/2 c honey
1/2 c light brown sugar
juice and zest of two limes

Bring all ingredients to a boil, whisking constantly. Then reduce heat to low and let simmer without a lid for 5 minutes. Toss the cooked wings in the sauce and serve immediately.
