Sweet Sriracha Baked Chicken Wings

Spicy Chicken Wings

I know, amazing right??!! They are really easy to do too. There are two steps to this process. Making the sweet and spicy Sriracha sauce with sweetener, and baking crispy chicken wings.

  • You can mix up the sauce while they’re in the oven. We will start with how to make the best chicken wings first.

You will need a baking sheet, tinfoil, a rack (to keep the wings off the pan), baking powder and salt. I know, sounds different but follow me here.

This is how to bake crisp chicken wings to get these going, or make air fryer firecracker chicken if you’d rather use that appliance.

Baked Chicken Wings

To make them extra crispy you do NOT want them to be directly on your cookie sheet. This cooling rack (the one I have) is important to elevate them a bit.

Drying them off is important as well after you’ve rinsed them. Then you’re going to shake them up in a bag with a mixture of baking powder and salt to keep them dry in the oven. THIS is how to create that ultra crispy texture.

They are close to the texture of air fryer chicken wings but if you don’t have this appliance, you can bake them in the oven instead. Another option would be to make these just with salt and pepper and then you could just toss with our creamy sriracha mayo and make hot wings that way.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

The nice thing about these sweet and spicy oven baked chicken wings is you can adjust the sweetness and heat to your liking!

The recipe I included above is perfect for us but if you want it a bit sweeter just add a bit more Stevia or honey. Be gentle when adding more Sriracha it can kick up some serious HEAT! 😉

You can use Tbsps. of sugar or just 1 packet (or 2 if you want it sweeter) for your sauce. It’s already measured out for you which is nice, and you can keep the rest to sweeten up your tea or coffee later. 😉

These turn out almost as crispy as our Instant Pot air fryer chicken wings do. If you don’t have one of these countertop appliances this is second best, on a baking sheet.

Once you have the sweet Sriracha sauce to your liking you’re ready to sauce your wings once they come out of the oven! Toss them if you want a generous amount, or brush just a bit on to look pretty on my tray. Serve with a light drink like lemonade and these sweet Sriracha baked chicken wings are the perfect appetizer.

Now if you want to eliminate the bones, I recommend our air fryer boneless wings recipe. Looking to cook a side dish at the same time, use another baking sheet to make baked cabbage steaks to serve with these.

Here’s how you make these hot wings in air fryer or baking in the oven is below.

Sriracha Chicken Wings

Time needed: 1 hour and 5 minutes.

Spicy Chicken Wings

  1. Prepare

    Rinse wings and place on paper towel. Pat dry to remove all water. 
    Add baking powder and salt to large freezer bag.  Put wings into bag and shake until all wings are coated.

    I like to do half wings and half the amt. of baking powder and salt to make sure all are well coated. 

    Line cookie sheet with foil and place cooling rack on top of that. Spray cooling rack well with non stick spray. 

  2. Bake

    Line coated wings on rack and place on low rack in oven for 30 minutes at 250 degrees. 

    Then rotate pan and move to middle/higher rack in oven and bake at 425 for 15 minutes.

    Rotate the pan once more and continue cooking on middle/top rack for an additional 20 minutes.  Sweetener. Toss sauce and wings in a bowl or brush on, serve!

  3. Mix sauce

    For the sauce mix your mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, vinegar, garlic salt, and paprika together. 

    Add 1 packet of sweetener or 1 Tbsp honey to taste.

Try our lemon pepper chicken wings air fryer style too.

We love sweet and spicy at our house (and with blood sugar issues, this stevia is a great option for us!)

Oh my word! These look delicious! And I never thought to use a stevia sweetener for cooking. What a great idea!
