Grilled Sriracha Sesame Chicken Wings

Before I share this Grilled Sriracha Sesame Chicken Wings recipe with the universe let me preface this by telling you my husband declared these chicken wings the best wings ever.


The best wings EVER, as in ‘EVAAAAAA.

Can you believe it, such a profound statement? 

With football season in full swing there is nothing that makes me happier than hanging with my friends and family on any given Sunday, wearing our favorite team gear, eating a bunch of tasty foods and drinking a few cold beers. It’s the ideal way to end the weekend. 

I decided to make these Grilled Sriracha Sesame Chicken Wings on a whim. I knew we were going to have chicken wings and originally I had planned on traditional buffalo style but then I opened my cabinet and saw a beautiful, shiny new bottle of sriracha staring at me and I knew I had to combine two of my favorite foods into the “best wings ever” {end quote}.

What makes these wings so special is the combination of grilled, smoked flavor and the intense sriracha flavor.Grilled Sriracha Sesame Chicken Wings

Grilling is a fantastic way to prepare chicken wings. The chicken gets that chargrilled flavor and they crisp up nicely and tend to cook better than the baked version and saves some calories over the fried version.  

I combined the Grilled Sriracha Sesame Chicken Wings with blue cheese, carrots and celery to serve them up and of course we ate them while sipping on some one of our favorite beers, Modelo.
