The Windsor, an upscale sports bar with two locations in New York City — one in the West Village and one in the Gansevoort Hotel on Park Ave. — shares a hot wings recipe for the Sriracha-obsessed. If there's a game on, you'll probably want to make a double or triple batch, as these sweet and spicy wings will disappear from the table fast.

6 winning wing recipes for the Super Bowl

Ingredients

  • 2 c buttermilk
  • 1 t black pepper
  • 1 ¼ t salt
  • ½ t Old Bay seasoning
  • 12 chicken wings
  • ½ c all-purpose flour
  • ¼ t garlic powder
  • ¼ t paprika
  • ¼ t onion powder
  • 1 qt vegetable oil
  • 1 c Sriracha
  • ¼ c honey
  • 1 ½ T chopped ginger
  • 2 T chopped scallion

Directions

1. In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, pepper, 1 t salt, and ¼ t Old Bay seasoning. Add the chicken, and coat with the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for 8 hours.

2. Then, in a small bowl, mix together the flour, garlic powder, ¼ t Old Bay seasoning, paprika, onion powder, and ¼ t salt. Transfer the chicken wings to a clean large bowl and coat evenly with the flour mixture. Place in the refrigerator for 1 more hour.

3. When ready to fry the wings, in a high-sided pan, heat the oil to 375°F. (The oil should be just deep enough to cover the wings entirely, about an inch.)

4. Fry the wings until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the Sriracha, honey, ginger, and scallion, and set aside.

6. Drain the chicken, transfer to a bowl, and toss with ¼ of the Sriracha-honey sauce. Reserve any remaining sauce for additional batches.
