  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper


  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp paprika


  • 1 cup BBQ sauce any flavor
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 1/2 cup Pepsi/Coke or 4 Tbsp honey


  • Wash and pat dry chicken wings, remove pointy ends.
  • Prepare a large bag to place all the chicken wings in for easier coating, if not, use a large enough container that have lid.
  • Shake with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground pepper. Let sit for 20 minutes or so to soak a bit.
  • Prepare the coating powder by mixing 1/2 cup flour with 1 tsp salt, garlic powder, ground cumin and paprika.
  • Now carefully transfer the flour mixture into wings bag/container. Tie/cover and shake rigorously to create an even coating on each wing.
  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Spray or pat some oil onto baking tray/rack/liner.
  • Arrange all the wings in and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Turn and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, let's make some sauce. Start by melting 3 Tbsp butter in a sauce pan.
  • Finely mince 2 clove garlic and brown in butter a bit for aroma to give off.
  • Reduce heat to simmering and add BBQ sauce and Pepsi/Coke or 4 Tbsp honey.
  • Add 2 Tbsp Sriracha and any seasoning to taste.
  • Stir well to mix and simmer or reduce till thicken before remove from heat.
  • When all the baked wings ready, carefully dip and turn each wing into the sauce to create an even sauce layer.
  • Place the wing back onto baking pan/rack, repeat for remaining wings.
  • Bake for 10 more minutes until all the sauce layer bubbling, caramelizing and stained into the chicken skin.
  • Carefully remove from oven, sprinkle with some sesame or so for decoration.
  • Serve as is with some clam dipping sauce and celery stalk or work with your favorite mashed potato. Make a nice appetizer or small entree for fours.
