INGREDIENTS

2 pounds chicken wings

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Sesame seeds, for garnish

FOR THE HONEY SRIRACHA GLAZE

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup Sriracha*

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.

Place wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Brush wings with Sriracha glaze and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp and crusted.

Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.
