Sweet Chile Garlic Wings

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Chicken


  • 3 pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 large rimmed baking pans with parchment paper.

  2. Divide the wings between the baking pans and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange skin-side up and roast until the skin is golden brown and crispy, about 40 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, until the garlic is golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the apricot jam, sugar, soy sauce and sriracha and bring to a simmer. Pour the sauce into a large bowl.

  4. When the wings are ready, use tongs to add them to the bowl with the sauce and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the chives.
