Honey and Sriracha Chicken wings have the perfect mix of sweet, hot and tart. Honestly, the flavor is like a little explosion in your mouth!
Big is a huge fan of chicken wings. I can take them or leave them. Personally, I find it way to much work for a bite of chicken. I mean really, there are two little bites of meat on each part of the wing! Although, if the wing is fried, it is my favorite part of the chicken. I love the breading to meat ratio! Can you tell I am a breading kind of girl!
Anyway, I digress. I recently saw some wings on sale and knowing Big’s love of chicken wings, I decided to pick some up. I am so glad I did! These wings are to die for!
