Thank you so much for all the get well wishes! You guys are the best. Seriously. You guys are so great that I’m even thinking about doing two giveaways in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

Now I’m definitely feeling a bit better but I’m still not fully recovered. I did take a day off of work yesterday and “relaxed” at home – “relaxed” meaning tidying up the house and cooking a bit here and there. Jason couldn’t seem to understand why I just couldn’t “chill.” My response: “Well, the toilet was gross! I couldn’t leave it like that!”

As you can tell, I’m a bit OCD.

Anyway, we should start talking about these wings or I’ll be writing a full on essay about my OCD. Now I made these because as I’ve said before, Jason is a wing fanatic so I’m always trying different wing recipes here and there. This one was particularly finger-licking sweet and spicy, but definitely not spicy enough for Jason. I think I’ll add more Sriracha the next time I make this. After all, you can never have too much Sriracha, right?

So here’s how you make this – it’s incredibly simple!

We’ll first start with the sauce mixture by combing the soy sauce, Mirin, honey, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water.

Now we should arrange the wings in a single layer in a large baking dish. A 9×13 casserole dish worked perfectly for me.

Next we’ll pour that lovely sauce mixture all over these babies.

Then we’ll pop them into the oven for about 45-50 minutes. Be sure to turn them at halftime.

And lastly, we’ll broil these guys for about 2-3 minutes for a bit of charred-ness (is this even a word)?

If it’s not spicy enough, feel free to serve with more Sriracha!
