Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

It's March and that means one thing in my foodie-obsessed brain - March Madness parties for days. That's right, that means chips and dip, guacamole, sliders, jalapeño poppers and, most importantly, crispy sticky chicken wings. Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings, to be exact.

Sriracha Lime Baked Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

If you ever have a snack attack, March Madness-related or not, your next go-to recipe absolutely has to be these wings. They are baked to crispy perfection in the oven, and the sticky spicy and tangy glaze makes them positively finger-licking good. You'll need the wet wipes for these, folks.

The Sriracha and lime juice make this super simple glaze full of flavor that you simply can't find anywhere else. No need to go out for chicken wing perfection - time to stay in with your friends and family watching the next March madness game, or just enjoying a leisurely spring afternoon with a couple of hearty beers.

Sriracha-Lime-Wings-Ingredients

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 5 Tbsp unsalted butter. Once melted, whisk in 1 Tbsp flour and brown for approximately 1 minutes. Add in the hoisin sauce, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice, stirring to combine. The mixture should become nice and thick pretty quickly, in less than a minute. In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings, 2 Tbsp melted butter, vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat the wings evenly.

Add the wings in an even layer to the lined baking sheet.

Brush the wings with a layer of glaze. Bake the wings for 25 minutes, turning them over halfway through and adding another coat of glaze. After 25 minutes are up, brush the wings with a final layer of glaze and broil for 4 to 5 minutes until crispy. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

I'm about to blow your minds with some serious bacon and cheese action. You may think that it couldn't get any better than the fried mac n cheese we busted out earlier this week, but we just outdid ourselves. Yet again.

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Pull apart breads are my new favorite recipe to whip out for a party, especially a huge spread like the one I'm hosting on Super Bowl Sunday in a couple weeks. This bread is so ridiculously simple, there's really no excuse for you to NOT make it. In about 5 minutes of prep time, you'll be a hot 15 minutes away from a cheesy, bacon-packed mess of a bread that everyone will gladly get messy for. Just take a gander at that cheese....

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Ok one more... All that cheese and bacon stuffed into the cracks of that warm, crusty bread...

Pull Apart Bacon Garlic Cheese Bread

Enough torture, I promise. But seriously, can't you just taste the deliciousness that this cheesy, bacon bite must pack? Are you hungry yet?

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together melted butter, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme and oregano. In another small bowl, combine the two cheeses and bacon. Gently toss to combine.

Using a serrated knife, cut the bread on a diagonal angle into 1-inch diamond shapes, making sure you don’t slice all the way through the loaf of bread.

Gently open up the cracks with your fingers. Drizzle each with a tsp of the butter mixture and a pinch of the cheese and bacon mix.

Wrap the loaf of bread in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes, until the cheese has mostly melted. Remove from the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, directly on the rack. Serve immediately.

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

When beer, bacon and cheese come together, it's a beautiful thing. It's an even more beautiful thing when it's all baked up into a gooey dip like the one you see right here. I don't know of anyone who could resist diving into this dish headfirst. I mean, it's bacon and cheese so it's a given that everyone will be obsessed with it.

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

But it's the beer that really makes this dip insanely delicious. The hoppy IPA gives the dish a little bite of beer flavor that pairs so perfectly with all that crispy bacon and massive amounts of cheese. The result is a dip that needs to be busted out on the regular, especially during tailgating season. As you gather around the TV to watch your favorite team bring home the win, this cheesy mess of goodness will make the win that much sweeter (or cheesier....). Beer and beer always go hand in hand. Don't try to argue with that logic, because you'll lose.

Bacon & Beer Cheese Dip | Sauce + Style

Load up those chips and get to eating, piggy fans!

Welcome to 2017 piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I am not ready to get back into the swing of things to kick off the New Year. It feels like there are 5 million to-do's on my list and I am barely making a dent in them a few days into the new year... One thing that's falling off my radar? Dinner. I am struggling with pumping out tasty meals without spending wayyyyy too much time on them. Since I have too much to do at work, I am starting to rely on meals of popcorn and soda - NOT how I wanted to start the year.

BBQ Chicken Avocado Flatbreads | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

Instead, I'm pulling out my Pig of the Month BBQ Shredded Chicken and I'm making something more than just a sandwich with it. These flatbreads are one of the easiest meals EVER and there's no one that can resist them, I don't care how picky of an eater they are. The fluffy naan with BBQ sauce, chicken and avocado is the best base for any pizza. Throw in the bite of some red onion and salty cheese and holy wow, this pizza is one the entire family will be begging you to make on a regular basis. Not to mention it's pretty dang healthy in terms of pizza, so you can feel ok about sticking to those New Year resolutions ;)

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Tailgating season is back and better than ever, piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I also ready to bring football back into my life. I just drafted my fantasy team and I have big hopes that my home team is going to be putting up some major points throughout the season.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Let's be honest though, as much as we love that ol' game we call football, the tailgating food is where it's AT. It's the thing that gets you through between the end of summer recipes and the official start of the holiday season once November rolls around. That means we have two months to stuff our faces with all the cheese, bacon and meats we can get our hands on.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

And I'm starting with wings. Sticky, sweet and spicy wings that make you bust out the wet wipes and get extra messy. This is just the recipe to start off with people! Just look at that sticky sauce covering those baked wings.... ALL. THE. YES. Are you ready to dig in??

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

In a large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, 2 Tbsp melted butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Add the wings and toss. Lay wings on lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Turn the oven to broil on high. Move chicken wings to the top rack and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until crispy. Flip and broil again on the other side.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together hot sauce and cornstarch. Add butter, molasses and honey, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Toss wings in a large bowl with the honey buffalo sauce. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

The first week of football is wrapping up and we couldn't be more excited. We are sad to see the end of summer so clearly, but all that football and tailgating amazingness in front of us is comforting our souls hardcore right about now. You know we are allllll about that tailgating food, but we also want to make sure we have the drinks part covered for y'all too. What's a tailgate party without some booze anyway? So we're bringing you these 15 fall cocktails to keep your tailgating spirits high (and extra boozy). These cocktails have all that apple and pumpkin goodness you start craving the moment September 1st rolls around, plus some extra odds and ends cocktails to give you a break once you start wearing yourself on everything apple and pumpkin. One of our favorite manly drinks below (pictured above) is Smoked Bourbon with Candied Bacon. Our smokers are running well into fall, low and slow, so we take advantage of that smoke by bottling it up with some bourbon. Top it with a slice of candied bacon and all the dudes out there basically melt as soon as they see it. It's also the perfect consolation prize if someone's team loses. As long as you give them one of these, you can mock them all you want.
