Sweet heat. And then some. I should’ve known I’d love these Dragon Fire wings so much that I would want more. Such a simple sauce but oh so addicting. Don’t let the sweetness of that first bite fool you. There’s heat coming and it’s coming fast. No question about it, Dragon Fire is easily one of my favorite wings of all time.
I used apricot preserves to make the Dragon Fire sauce. Peach would also work just fine. You can also substitute for the Sriracha sauce. Any good hot sauce or even Buffalo wing sauce would work just as well.
Also try my Detroit hot honey wings. They’re yummy!
I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
