Grilled Sriracha Chicken Wings

We posted this great recipe quite a while ago before Sriracha became such a popular sauce. If you like spicy wings, this will become one of your favorites. My son loves these wings. These are great and not too hot, a nice exotic sweet hot.

Jerked Grilled Chicken Wings


Well, these will light your fire, I get a craving for these when I haven't had my chile fix for a while. Feel free to cut back on the chiles here, or substitute serrano or jalapeno chilies for the habaneros. 

By the way, habanero chiles are one of the hottest chiles in the world, do not take them lightly. Most recipes will tell you to wear gloves, but the most important thing is do not rub your eyes or touch anything that you do not want to burn until after you have washed your hands thoroughly. 

Jerk Marinade

5 scallions, chopped

6 large garlic cloves, chopped
