Easy Gourmet Hot Wings and a Giveaway!

sriracha honey hot wings recipe -

Um. Today is the day guys! It’s the official birthday of Easy Gourmet!!! I’m feeling ALL of the feelings: happy, nervous, confused, and thankful at the same time. To everyone who preordered: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! To be honest, I’m not always good with words and if I think about it too much I might burst into a million tears, so let’s just talk about these chicken wings!

sriracha honey hot wings recipe -

Chicken wings – I don’t think I know a single person who doesn’t like them. I mean, yes, they literally need a bit of handholding and they’re messy and have a tendency to get all over your face. But…that’s what makes them so delicious! You’ve got to work for them a little bit and the reward is so, so satisfying. I think the hardest part of this recipe is getting the wings in your mouth. Or if you’re messy, getting sauce out of your clothes.

sriracha honey hot wings recipe -

This is one of my favourite recipes in the book because it’s the epitome of what I love about cooking. It’s delicious, fast, and easy. It doesn’t have a million ingredients but it doesn’t need to. I’m kind of at a loss for words here guys. So, all I can really say is, make these wings! You won’t regret it. A million thank yous and x’s and o’s to everyone who’s bought Easy Gourmet, visited I am a Food Blog, and has emailed me to say that they’ve tried a recipe and loved it. You guys make me.

Sriracha Honey Hot Wings Recipe as found in Easy Gourmet
serves 2-4

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup sriracha, reduce to 2 tablespoons if needed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • oil for the pan

In a large bowl, mix together the first 7 ingredients. Add the chicken wings and mix well. Marinate in the fridge for 1 hour. Remove the wings from the marinade, reserving the marinade.

Indoors: Heat a bit of oil in a large nonstick pan over medium to medium- high heat. Add the chicken wings, cover and cook, flipping every so
often until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. Remove the lid, add the remaining marinade and turn the heat up to high to reduce the sauce. Enjoy immediately.

Grill: When ready to cook, set the grill at medium to medium-high heat. Brush the grill with oil and grill the chicken wings, brushing with the remaining marinade and turning every so often until charred and cooked through, about 14-18 minutes.

Note: I pretty much exclusively use grapeseed oil or sunflower oil when cooking – it stands up to heat and is extremely neutral tasting.

    Would love to see some awesome pies. I have a feeling you’d do some amazing rustic pies.

  71. YAY on the book, I can’t wait to get a copy! I would say your next book should be party-themed, since I love all your fun share-able recipes. Also, you could include variations on each recipe (vegetarian, dairy-free, etc.).

  72. Entertaining and family style food!

  73. I think that mid week quick meals are crucial but with that twist that you add on to everything. I also would love to see some sort of Indian Mexican fusion like a vindaloo burrito.

  88. Cookbooks that illustrate recipes that the author is passionate about are always the best. Some ideas for book or chapters:

    1. Low and slow: recipes for Sunday afternoon
    2. Fermented foods 101
    3. Family meals
    4. Korean food for dummies
    5. Finger foods (or tapas-style)

    That would be a top runner on my birthday wish list, just as your Easy Gourmet is a top runner on my birthday wish list this year

  95. Yayyyy! Congrats! In your next cookbook I’d love to see cookie recipes with unusual flavors and mix-ins. Savory/sweet, ya know?

  96. Congratulations on the book. Looks fantastic. I entertain a lot and gravitate towards recipes that pack lot of flavor without a lot of time and crazy ingredients (like these wings). I’d buy a cookbook that totally gets that!

  97. I would love to see a chapter on picnic foods/menus for couples. We have been picnicing all summer long and it is so hard to come up with delicious food that I and my husband both like.

  98. I LOVE how easy all of your recipes are while still seeming so exciting (and difficult) to my family or guests. I would love to have a cookbook aimed at easy gourmet entertaining! Party recipes whether it be appetizers or big dishes for dinner parties. Sometimes when you are entertaining the last thing you want are intensive recipes, so keeping it simple but group size portions would be awesome!!

  99. I would love a book with a focus on what to do with leftovers!

  100. I’d love to see some more vegetarian recipes that are healthy. Maybe Indian/Thai/Japanese in style! Your blog is really a great inspiration for my home cooking and I really appreciate that you seem to love what you do.

    Vegetarian Asian is always my favorite, so I’d love to see a whole book full.

  110. Your work is always so inspiring — I’d lie to be able to flip through your new easy gourmet cookbook + le creuset ?! There is no wrong :)

  111. I am on an egg kick lately so EGGS, EGGS, EGGS! And I’m not just talking breakfast foods because eggs are a staple dinner food for me!

  112. Sauces…tips, substitutions, etc. I only mastered the tip of the iceberg by taking a class!

Since I haven’t gotten to read your book, I can’t say for sure what isn’t there that I’d want in the next. On your blog, I especially love your great grilled cheese interpretations, nacho remixes, and fabulous brunch ideas, so I’d love to see more of those in a book. (And since they’re probably already in this book, then I guess just more of it in the next one.)

  136. More one- pot meals… perfect for the le creuset dutch oven!

    I suggest desserts and veggie dishes!

  213. Congratulations on the book!!! Can not wait to get my copy!!! As for your next adventure in the culinary literature world, why not just keep doing what you’re already doing? I mean, obviously everybody is a fan of your work. You have it all: comfort food, ethnic inspired dishes, healthy fare and dessert. Just keep ’em coming!!

  214. You are clearly the queen of appetizers/party food, with these wings being no exception, so I think your next book should have a section on finger food. Congratulations on the book. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. All the recipes I have tried from the blog have been amazing. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

    Sarah Jennings on September 2, 2014 at 8:16 pm
  215. ¡Pinchos and tapas! Most people are more familiar with tapas, but in the Basque country it’s pinchos (or pintxos) what it’s all about. Drink a beer, cider or a glass of wine and eat a couple of pinchos and you’re in heaven!

  216. Recipes with a family or historical story behind it. For example, favorite recipes of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles and any historical trivia about the dish. with lots of your wonderful photos, of course! :)

  217. Easy meals with pantry staples or fusion twists on traditional comfort foods!

  218. Yummy looking wings! I think a slice of coconut cake would be a great recipe. Very tasty and it will make a great photo.

  219. Include more salads or vegan recipes!

  220. love your recipes and website! for the next one… desserts or more twists on the classics! :)

  221. Love this! Spend 3 months in Asia, and document the best recipes + restaurants you find. Plus, you can invite a different guest writer/food blogger for select recipes, to present their own twist to your recipe.

  222. Another cookbook with more of your beautiful photography and amazingly delicious recipes would suffice :)

  223. You should wirte one with lots of gourmet desserts. I would love that. Congrats on the book! :)

  224. Well known dishes with a new twist!

  225. Asian food! Specifically Taiwanese food!

  242. Mmmm…one pot wonders! Congratulations!!!

  243. Hmm…I’m torn between “lots of vegetarian recipes” and “burgers”! Actually, one of my favorite things in a cookbook is having menu suggestions, because then I end up trying more recipes than I would have if I just picked a main dish to make.

  244. Congrats on your book! I would like to see party and picnic/potluck foods.

  245. Congrats on the book! Would love to see recipes for parties/easy entertaining!

  246. I’d love to see a chicken and andouille sausage gumbo! Congratulations on your book. It looks lovely!

  272. I’d love to see a book dedicated to dinner parties or soups!

  273. Congrats on your new book! LOVE this idea and LOVE your new book! I can’t wait to order it! For your next book… how about Gourmet Appetizers or Dishes with 7 ingredients or less and prepping 20 minutes or less… fooling your party that you spent all day in the kitchen preparing for their arrival. (You can modify the number of ingredients and prep/cook time… but it would go hand in hand with your current book.)

  274. Love the plash shot and those flavors make for some delicious wings! How about the next cook book being street food done at home?

  275. I’m always looking for easy dinner meals for picky eaters, my husband likes only the same 5 comfort foods and I have a hard time changing things up!


  276. Entertaining type food

  277. Oh boy, I just enjoy cookbooks of all kinds! How about an entertaining cookbook?

    Thanks for the opportunity! I would love to win!

  279. Congratulations on the book! Ahhhh!! I’ll be trying your wings out this week with my korean style potstickers as a surprise to my husband for a recent accomplishment.

    Ideas for next cookbook: sandwiches or foods that make good leftovers to be taken to school/work for lunch.

  290. hosting/entertaining one…..that plans out what can be made ahead, how to lay out the buffet/table, etc.

  291. Congratulations on your book ! I love exploring new cookbooks. I would like to see more Thai related recipes as I love the spices, and healthy food choices.

  292. Your next cookbook could be about anything as long as it’s not a dessert book. And kale. No more kale please. And brussels sprouts. I just don’t enjoy brussels sprouts.

    Anne Weber-Falk on September 3, 2014 at 2:37 pm
  293. How about a cookbook on all the delicious things you can make in your Le Creuset?

  304. I think including your take on traditional breakfast foods would be awesome – I know your version of morning oatmeal would be so much more exciting than my own!

  305. I think you should have more Italian recipes!

  306. Desserts?? I think anything that is sweets would be awesome!

  307. Recipes based on the four seasons and maybe for winter, concentrating more on meat?

  308. I got my copy of the book yesterday! I was actually excited to see the roast corn recipe in there. More recipes with corn, please!

  314. all things chocolate and peanut butter, please!!!!

  315. Mediterranean recipes would be great!

  316. Canada has some of the best dim sum. I’d like to see some of that in a new book.

  317. recipes that are really quick and easy!

  318. Hmmmm, I personally LOVE cook books that are multi-ethnical. Mauve the three could be a particular holiday (Christmas or Halloween maybe) out desserts!

  319. Maybe lots of healthy veggies

  320. Love this. I think your next book should include meal planning! I adore your recipes. And the photography is outstanding!

  321. Like Oliver (Twist) said, “More soup, please.” Again, congrats on the Saveur award and keep those blogs and lovely photos coming.

  322. I’ve enjoyed following the blog – and what I’ve always wished for is an expansion of each narrative you already include alongside the recipes. I believe this would heighten the personalized experience and provide a glimpse into the unique history of each dish from its origins to the processes along the way to perfect it.

  323. Congrats on the book! I bet desserts would be great.

  324. Savory pies, sweet pies, hand pies, microwave pies, rice cooker pies, basically anything pie.

  325. I’d love to see a book about food photography 101 – styling, set ups, camera, etc.

  326. Congratulations! Next book: creative and easy kids lunch box ideas

  327. Love your blog!
    How about a soup book…..around the world in 80 soups

  328. I’d love to see lots of breakfast recipes!

  330. More Baking/desserts including cakes and pies, cookies, brownies etc or maybe “Better Than Take Out” for quick/easy versions of restaurant favorites including lots of Asian flavors which are my favorite!

  331. You could do more asian inspired twists on american classics!

    Melissa Schwimmer on September 4, 2014 at 5:05 am
  332. i would love to see an easy gourmet meal using sausage

  333. different twists on everyday pantry items

  334. More vegetarian adaptable recipes and noodles! Oh and more spritzers or lemonades

  335. Those wings look AMAZING…can’t wait to check out your new cookbook!! For the next cookbook, I would love to see something like Fine Cooking’s Recipe Maker feature in cookbook form…the idea is they basically give you “formulas” for different recipes like muffins or thai curry or meatloaf, and then you can choose from a long list of different ingredients (i.e. different flavors of muffins, different veggies and proteins for the curries, etc.) to make the recipe your own. I think that would make an awesome cookbook!

  336. Oh man! I would LOVE to win the book and Le Creuset. My kitchen is so sad without it!

    I think your take on around-the-world would be fantastic! I love different dishes, but I also like it in a way that 1) I can find the ingredients here in Canada, and 2) If something needs to be changed to make it easier to find/cook/season/prepare/anything in North America, I like to know that! If there’s an easy cheat to achieve the same dish, I’m all for it! And I think you’d be great at both those things!

    Congratulations on the book! All the best!

  337. My favorite recipes are the ones that come out of left field and are completely unique – but make perfect sense once you think about it. So a cookbook with crazy recipes! (Unique ingredient combos, surprising changes to classics, etc.)

  338. Congratulations!!

    I’d love to see more veggie dishes.

  339. congrats on the cookbook of course! hmm, i’d love to see more seafood recipes!

  340. Dinners for two? I’m so sick of take out! Thanks for the chance.

  341. easy, tasty, company-worthy sides and vegetarian dishes

  342. My absolute favorite recipe on your blog is the crispy shiitake quinoa salad with the fried shallot oil, avocado, etc. I’d love to see more vegetarian recipes like this in your next cookbook!

  343. Your brunch series as a whole cookbook of its own!

  344. Your breakfast/brunch recipes are awesome – to have them compiled in one go-to book would be fabulous!

  345. Boozy brunch!

  346. More Desserts!! Seriously have a sweet tooth….

  347. Congratulations on such an incredible book.
    I preordered and anticipated your book for sometime and it is amazing!
    The book is the perfect size, recipes look exciting and the photos are gorgeous!
    I can’t wait to cook from it!
    One of the first things I read was the Acknowledgments…so for your next cookbook, that I would definately buy, I would love to see your friend’s mom’s famous vegetarian pho recipe! I follow your blog so maybe it will show up there in the meantime?
    Thanks for the chance to win! on September 4, 2014 at 10:46 am

  351. I would love to see a book of just recipes involving noodles!

  352. Love your blog. I would like to see more one pot meals.

  353. not enough cook books cooking for two, so I’d keep that…I think it’d be cool to see a native dish from around the world. Everyone’s nostalgic for something from home and you have a great audience to share/introduce those to

  355. Anything with Mushrooms! they’re my favorite ingredient in most recipes!

    Andrew Brotherton on September 4, 2014 at 9:13 pm
  364. Entertaining for a crowd/special occasions!

  365. Could write about cooking with Greek yogurt. It is such a versatile ingredient and you could create so many savory food and dessert with it.
    Congratulation for the new book, it looks awesome! :)

  366. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make a soufflé, so an easy recipe for that would be awesome!

  367. I would love to see more desserts!

  368. I would love to see a cookbook on one-dish meals (using my dutch oven) with a special section on entertaining

  369. Maybe include allergenic and gluten free recipes. Thank you!

  370. Lots of breakfast, and more easy dessert recipes, like your mug cake!

  371. Please please please do a vegetarian pho recipe!

  372. How about recipes for lesser known, seasonal produce? I love trying new fruits and veggies, but tend to stay away from them if I don’t have a recipe. A few I’ve tried have turned out to be some of my favorites and I know serve them often.

  373. Love to see more spice, vegetarian dishes!

  374. More of your style of recipes and food with dedicated chapters for cocktails, sandwiches, Asian-fusion and healthy-ish comfort food. Thank you!

  375. comfort foods using whole foods, and all things you’re good at — brunch/breakfast ideas, maybe with some asian twists! but honestly, i think anything you come up with will be wonderful!

  376. How about quick easy weeknight recipes?

  377. I would love to see variations that you can do easily on the base recipe. Spicier, vegetarian etc….

  378. Any kind of dessert that includes thai tea x.x

  379. I have a very specific request! There was a place I loved in NYC that ended up closing, but they had the most amazing salad I’d ever tasted. It was made with shredded brussels sprouts, pancetta, walnuts, and pomegranate seeds—plus they once told me the secret ingredient to it all was pomegranate molasses.

    Now that that’s impossible for me to buy anymore, I would take any brussels sprouts salad to fill the void that one left in my stomach. Anything with easier ingredients to get ahold of than pomegranate molasses!

  380. Maybe include more breakfast food like pancakes, oatmeal, waffles, and all that yummy good stuff? I looove breakfast food.

  381. Sandwiches!

  382. You are crazy-creative! I love all the recipes on this and your previous blog. What about a More Easy Gourmet for your next book? Breakfasts? Noodles? Whatever it is, it will be great! Congrats on this one!

  383. I think a book on updated traditional recipes would be neat. Congrats on your book!

  384. I would love to see recipes using a pressure rice cooker. Anything from breads and desserts to savory meals.

  385. Asian-fusion? Breakfast? Comfort foods? Whatever your next book is it doesn’t matter. Ill buy it! Congrats!!!

  386. I think your next cookbook should include some black sesame desserts or dishes!

  387. I love breakfast, so anything with lots of breakfast recipes is good by me. You also can’t go wrong with desserts.
