Baked Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are naturally more flavorful compared to some of the other parts, such as chicken breast. When marinated in seasonings, they are off-the-charts-good!
More often chicken wings are sold with bone-in and skin-on, but you can also find skinless, boneless versions. You may be surprised to find that chicken wings are actually light meat, not dark meat. Still, they are deliciously tender and succulent due their fat content.
In this recipe, I chose skin-on wings because they result in the golden crispy appearance, taste amazing and result in extremely juicy chicken wings!
And as it goes with any bone-in meat, it packs loads of flavor and keeps the meat moist.
Oven Baked Honey Sriracha Wings
These oven baked chicken wings are first coated with a delicious, flavorful marinade before they are roasted to crispy perfection.

There are a lot of honey sriracha wing recipes out there…

Bake or fry chicken wings?
As much as I love a good piece of chicken wing, I don’t very much like the frying process.
Also, the dietitian in me starts sending red-alerts every time I deep fry something…
Not that it stops me..
But sometimes, just sometimes, I do listen to my inner voice…
Especially when they can result in baked chicken wings just like fried chicken wings!
Believe me, you can not tell the difference.
Load Up the Heat
I love using cayenne pepper and red chilli powder in this recipe as well.
I believe all kinds of spicy ingredients add their own share of flavor and heat.
While I use mild sriracha because of a kid at home, you can easily turn up the heat with extra hot sriracha!
What is sriracha sauce?
Sriracha Sauce is a spicy, tangy hot chili sauce which you can find in the Asian or sauce aisle of most supermarkets.

How long do chicken wings take to bake?
Bake Chicken Wings at 400°F (200°C) for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven and size of the wings. After 30 minutes, you will want to keep an eye on the wings to make sure the the coating does not burn or blacken.
Chicken wings are done when they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the juices run clear. Or, insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the wing, being careful to avoid the bone. If the internal temperature is 165°F or above, you can take them out. If the wings are below 165 °F, return to the oven.
However, for best results, you can let the internal temperature of the baked wings reach about 185F-190F.
