It’s football season, and these Garlic Sriracha Chicken Wings are the perfect snack for game day!
Heck, they are the perfect snack for just about any day, really.
A little kick from the Sriracha along with your favorite buffalo sauce.
And the hint of garlic from the marinade makes these wings extra special.
My husband and I have been on quite the chicken wing kick lately.
He just got a Traeger grill and they are absolutely amazing in the Traeger.

I marinated these Garlic Sriracha Chicken Wings overnight in a gallon size bag with Sriracha, garlic paste (or you could use garlic powder), and some kosher salt and pepper.
I smoked them for 2 and a half hours at 250 degrees, flipping them halfway through.
You could certainly bake them in the oven as well.
They just won’t have that smoky flavor.
After 2 and a half hours I brushed them with more of the buffalo sauce mixed with a bit more Sriracha.
And let them smoke for 10 more minutes.
Serve these Garlic Sriracha Chicken Wings with more of the sauce on the side and enjoy!

Garlic Sriracha Chicken Wings
A spicy blend of buffalo and Sriracha make for the perfect wing sauce!
- 3 pounds split chicken wings
- 3 Tbsps Sriracha
- 2 Tbsps garlic paste (or 1 Tbsp garlic powder)
- kosher salt, pepper
- 1 cup buffalo sauce
Put the wings in a gallon size plastic bag. Put 2 Tbsps of the Sriracha (save 1 Tbsp for the sauce), garlic paste (or garlic powder), kosher salt, and pepper in the bag. Close the bag and massage until the chicken wings are evenly coated. Marinate at least 1 hour or overnight.
Mix the buffalo sauce with the remaining 1 Tbsp Sriracha and set aside.
Cook the chicken wings according to one of the following methods, use a thermometer to make sure they are at 170 degrees:
In the oven: Place wings on a lined baking sheet and put in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes, flip them halfway through. Brush the sauce on the wings and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
In the smoker: Place the wings in a smoker set to 250 degree for 2 and a half hours. Flip them them halfway through. Brush the sauce on the wings and smoke for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve with extra sauce on the side.
