Each crispy wing or drumette is perfectly seasoned, air-fried to golden perfection, and then generously coated in a tantalizing glaze that marries the rich sweetness of honey with the kick of Sriracha. 

Ingredients:

For the Chicken:

  • 2 pounds chicken wings or drumettes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Honey Sriracha Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • Sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

For the Chicken:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Pat the chicken wings or drumettes dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, then toss them in olive oil to coat evenly.
  3. Place the chicken in the EaZy MealZ air fryer basket (this makes it extra crispy), making sure they are not overcrowded.
  4. Air fry for 25-30 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through, or until the skin is crispy and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

For the Honey Sriracha Glaze:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger.
  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
  3. Remove the glaze from heat and set aside.

Assembly:

  1. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a large bowl.
  2. Pour the Honey Sriracha glaze over the hot chicken and toss until the pieces are well coated.
  3. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy your Honey Sriracha Glazed Air-Fried Chicken!
