February 8, 2021

Baked Sriracha Lime Chicken Wings – made with sriracha and fresh lime, these wings make the recipe for your next game day or everyday dinner! Baked in the oven for a health kick too!

I always feel like I should be posting wings around football season or the Super bowl but in true form I’m sharing these after football season is done. Don’t ask me who won the Superbowl or who my favorite team is. Couldn’t tell ya! I’ve maybe watched half a football game in my life and I’m perfectly happy to leave it that way.

That being said, the game food I can get down with! Wings, nachos, fries…sign me up! I’m all about that football foodie life. These baked sriracha lime chicken wings are not exception. Thankfully I don’t need a football game to give me permission to eat these. Just an average Tuesday night and some wings and I’m a happy girl. These babies are baked too keeping them healthy!

Baked Sriracha Lime Chicken Wing Ingredients

  • Raw chicken wings
  • Coconut milk
  • Honey
  • Limes (zest + juice)
  • Sriracha sauce
  • Tapioca flour or cornstarch
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt and pepper

How to Make Baked Chicken Wings

STEP 1: Combine the wings, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place the spice-coated wings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400ºF for 30 minutes.

STEP 2: While the wings are baking, combine the coconut milk, lime zest and juice, honey and Sriracha in a small pot over medium heat. Combine 1 tbsp of tapioca flour with 2 tbsp of water under all tapioca flour has dissolved to form a slurry and there are no clumps. Add tapioca “slurry” to sriracha mixture.

STEP 3: Remove the wings from the oven and toss in the pot to cover with glaze. Place the coated wings back on the baking sheet and broil on the top rack of the oven for 2-3 minutes or until your desired level of crispiness has been reached. Watch carefully as this process goes quickly!

You Questions Answered:

Are these spicy? Yes! I would say they’re average spicy. Really depends on how spicy you find sriracha sauce to me. It’s definitely not the hottest hot sauce but it has a kick so prepare your taste buds.

Can this recipe be doubled/tripled etc…? Yes! these sriracha lime wings can very easily be doubled or tripled. You may just need to bake your chicken wings on separate baking sheets and in a few rounds.

Can I make these in the air fryer? To be honest, I don’t have an air fryer and have never used one but I imagine that you probably could! If you try these in the air fryer can you let me know in the comments below?
