Sriracha Chicken Wings

Hello, 2015!

A year to spend wisely, save more and spend less. For this tight budget year, I am going to cook more, dine at home more and occasionally eat out. With that said, I’m going to avoid paying RM20 for a plate of Buffalo Wings. Instead, I’m going to try making something similar from the humble kitchen, Sriracha Chicken Wings.

Lately, I’ve been stocking up the fridge pretty packed and made these from whatever I could find in the fridge and found some oven roasted chicken wings and Sriracha sauce  recipes online. Combined and improvised the recipe based on the ingredients I have. #power
