More than just an insulting heat, these wings have a complex layer of flavors and a building intensity level.


24 chicken wingettes and drumettes; (see this post for video on how to cut them)
1/8 cup coriander; ground
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1 Tablespoon Kosher salt
1/8 cup olive oil
1/3 cup Sriracha sauce
8 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 cup basil; fresh chopped
1 lime zest
4 cloves garlic; roasted

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Make a marinade with coriander, cumin, salt, and oil. Marinade wings for 4 hours in a ziploc bag.

Over very low heat, melt butter and whisk with basil, lime zest, sriracha sauce, and garlic.

Get your Big Green Egg or grill up to 350f on indirect heat and cook for 30 minutes. Flip chicken.

Cook another 20 minutes and toss in the sauce.

Cook 10 more minutes, to crisp up the sauce. Serve with the usual suspects (celery & blue cheese or ranch).


First made 11/13/09. I loved them.

Amazing. Huge crowd pleaser

My new favorite hot wings. I substituted cilantro for the basil though.

call me crazy but once the sriracha was mixed with the butter and cooked garlic these were nearly as spicy as one would think. If I do these again, ill definitely reduce the amount of butter.

surprised at just how good it was

Came out a bit different when pan cooking chicken, color wise, not as spicy as you might think.

Some of us don't like cumin so I simply brined the wings first for 30 minutes instead of the marinade in this recipe. I then put it on the gas grill over low heat for 20 minutes, then dunked the wings in the sauce, threw it back on the grill for another 5-10 minutes on medium heat. Yum!

Can i bake this instead of grill??

Yes, I do indirect the last 10 minutes, mainly because I am using a big green egg and don't want to bother to take the plate setter out to switch to direct heat. You can burn oven mitts up that way ;) But you are right, finishing over direct heat would work very well for a more crispy wing.

We had these wings while watching UFC Saturday night. These were awesome! The only question I had was during the last 10 minutes when you cook after you coat in the sauce, do you continue to cook over indirect heat?

Brilliant, the flavor is very original, I felt like I was trying chicken wings again for the first time.
