BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Everyone has a sweet and spicy side, and these chicken wings are no exception! Honey and hot sauce make for a perfect combination of the two flavors! Sriracha is a Thai sauce made from chiles, salt, sugar and vinegar. It can be found at any oriental market or the international section of your local grocery store. Let’s celebrate National Chicken Wing Day!
