Sticky sweet and spicy chicken wings on a tray with sesame seeds

Asian Chili Butter Wings & Cauliflower Bites

For this unreal pub snack, movie night, or wing night extravaganza, you can keep it classic with your regular chicken wings or try my favorite duck wings. Alternatively, you can substitute for cauliflower, a flavorful, meatless option.

To prepare the wings/cauliflower, start by baking them. Season both with olive oil and a dry rub consisting of salt, pepper, paprika, ginger, garlic powder, and a touch of chili powder and brown sugar.

Generously apply the dry rub and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes for wings and 25 minutes for cauliflower.

Optional step: The dry-rubbed baked goodies are delicious as is, but if you want to take them to the next level, consider deep frying. They will become even more incredible. If you choose to deep fry, heat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and fry for 2-6 minutes until they reach your desired level of crispiness.

Now, let's make them saucy. In a pan, heat up 3 scoops of Butter Buddies Honey Chili, along with brown sugar, sriracha, and a splash of hoisin sauce. Once the mixture is well combined and bubbling, toss the wings or cauliflower in the sauce. Finish it off with a sprinkle of white sesame seeds (or black if you're feeling fancy).

Serve your creation with your preferred bar vegetables and a creamy dill sour dip made from sour cream, fresh dill, and pickle juice.
