It’s Super Bowl week and according to my hubby, it’s illegal to celebrate the big game without chicken wings! I grew up in Buffalo, spent more than 30 years there and Mark spent the better part of 10 years living there, so we know a thing or two about good chicken wings. In those parts, they make their appearance at nearly every gathering, party, get together and special occasion. That said, traditional Buffalo-Style chicken wings, while always good, we’ve been there, done that. It was time to mix things up a bit. I know what my husband likes so I created this recipe with him in mind, while for me and my love of veggies, I made a second, even  less traditional version, with cauliflower, which you can grab here: Spicy Orange Sriracha Cauliflower “Wings”.

After making several batches of my honey-sweetened orange marmalade this past week, I was inspired to continue creating with it, we have more than enough of it and it’s so delicious I want to put it on everything! This sticky, finger-licking good wing sauce, combines the sweet, tartness of the homemade orange marmalade with the heat from Sriracha! Now that’s a winning team.

Ok, these are awesome. That sweet-spicy combo is pure perfection. And your photos are gorgeous. You know how to make chicken wings look damn sexy…which isn’t that easy to do. Cheers, friend!

Truth be told I’ve never been into orange chicken but I think you just convinced me!

Honestly, same for me. But the Sriracha makes these less sweet and citrus focused with a little more heat! I think you’ll dig!

Yep, those were amazing! I used apricot jam instead of orange marmalade because I was a.) too lazy to make my own and b.) too cheap to buy it after I saw the apricot jam on sale at Earth Fare! Seriously, best wings ever!

These look so good. Especially since I need to figure out what I need to eat for lunch right now.
I just thought I’d mention something. Some FB folks gave me some advice when my wings weren’t crispy. They suggested steaming them and putting them in the fridge before the oven. It is an Alton Brown method. I can’t believe how much better they got.
Before that, I was blaming my apartment oven not having convection. I’m living temporarily in a Bay area apt with a crappy oven. I steamed the wings and chilled them like they said, roasted them at 420 for about 40 minutes, turning once, and I’m in wing heaven again!!!

This is awesome advice. I will have to try this next time we make wings. Thank you so much for sharing.
