Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings and Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

Recommended Posts

I had a hankering for some "Wings and Thangs" so I searched the internet for a good appetizer to go with wings.  I came up with one from “Tasty” on YouTube.


I started out with the potato skins as they took the longest. Here are the ingredients:


4 medium large (or 8 smaller) Russet potatoes. Prick w/ fork and bake for 60 minutes at 400 degrees.





Let then cool and cut in half.


Scoop out most of the potato flesh leaving approximately 1/4".


Place them on a baking rack (flesh side up) and coat the flesh with some OO and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. (Flip after 10)


While they are baking put the flesh of 2 scooped out potatoes into a bowl, add the following and then mix well:

1/2 cup grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1/2 cup grated Mozzarella Cheese

6 oz. of softened Cream Cheese

2 cups shredded chicken

1 packet of Ranch Seasoning. (2 tbsp.’s)

1/2 cup Hot Sauce





Mix well.


Take the potato skins and fill with the potato and chicken mixture.


Top with more grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. (Drizzle with some ranch dressing and some diced green onion and serve)


For the wings I used a recipe from Chef John on Food Wishes. Here are the ingredients:


Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings



Ingredients for 4 portions:

2 1/2 pounds chicken wing sections (I had 1 ¼ lbs. so I cut these amounts in half)

1 tbsp kosher salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tbsp baking powder (aluminum free)

- Coat wings, and bake at 425 F., turning every 15-20 minutes, until they are browned and crispy. Total cooking time will be about 1 hour, but that depends on the size and temperature of your wings.







On the kamado at 400.


After 15 minutes I flipped them.


While they were cooking I made up the glaze. Here are the ingredients:

For the Honey Sriracha glaze: (I cut these amounts in half)

1/3 cup honey

1/3 cup Sriracha

1 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar

1/4 tsp sesame oil

sesame seeds to garnish







Here they are ready to be glazed.


Here they are plated up with some ranch dressing, carrots, celery and a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.








Close up of the wings.

Wings had some nice heat and sweetness to them and the skin was fairly crispy too.


And done!




Thanks for looking.

Thank you KK. Believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever cooked wings. (Or potato skins) I've never been a big fan of wings but that may change after this cook.


I'm lucky to be in San Diego county as it's one of the epicenters of Craft Beer brewing. Last I heard there are more than 70 craft brewers in the county. (Some of them pretty large such as Stone, Ballast Point and Coronado)

That looks awesome.  That potatoes recipe looks very interesting and delicious.



Thank you Rob. I've also not been a big fan of potato skins but they were delicious and I WILL be making them again.

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      Wanted to try out one of my new knives so decided what better way that to make some Pico de Gallo. Sorry I didn’t get any pics as I was filming a video instead. (Video link below)
      Thanks for watching.
      The recipe is in the video but not listed in writing. I shared it on this site before so if you don’t want to listen to the entire video you can hit this link instead.

      If I had stopped at the cheap Mercer knife, I had purchased from Amazon I’d have been fine. (See previous thread) Unfortunately, there was a sale over Labor Day at Cutlery and More, so my wife is now mad at me because I purchased 3 more new knives.
      She suggested I have a problem  and to this I must agree.  I didn’t “need” any of these knives, but one was such a good price and the other two are, as Old Man Parker said on Christmas Story, “Indescribably Beautiful!”.  Below is a short video of the objects of my wife’s wrath.
      This first knife is a 9” Dragon Storm Chef’s knife by Apogee Cutlery. It’s made of BD1N steel with a HRC of 63. It was on Clearance with an additional 20% off for Labor Day.
      This next knife is an Enso SG2 7” Bunka knife. It’s made of 101 layers of stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was on sale with special price and 20% off for Labor Day.
      This last knife is an Miyabi Artisan 9.5” Kiritsuke knife. It’s made of 2 layers of hammered stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was offered at special introductory price for Labor Day.
      Here’s the video:
      I’m going to have to cook some good food using these knives to get out of the Doghouse. 
      Thanks for looking.

      The last time we rented an Airbnb I vowed to buy a knife roll and bring some of my knives with me so I could have the use of sharp knives instead on the dull knives they always seem to have. (It’s not that they need to be expensive, but if they were at least sharp I wouldn’t complain)
      Well we just got back from spending a week in Reno at an Airbnb and you can guess how the knives were. So, I’ve made good on my vow and got myself a cheap knife roll. I also purchased this Mercer Millenia 8” chef knife to go in it.
      As I said they don’t need to supply expensive knives and this new Mercer knife is proof of this. (It cost me whooping $18.00) So here is a video of the new knife and roll and the different knives I’ll be taking with me when we go on our next trip like this. (An assortment of mostly Mercer and Victorinox knives)
      Thanks for looking.

      Finally pulled the trigger on a Joetisserie and can’t wait to start using it. First up want to do a chicken as that seems simple and easy, but given the two pack Costco sells has anyone done two birds at the same time on a KJ Classic? I’ve searched but haven’t found much Info with people cooking two, other than a picture which seems to be a Big Joe. Seems like it might be tight but should make it as long as they aren’t over 5lbs each. Also wondering if that affects cooking time.
