Chicken wings with sriracha sauceFriday night I crossbred Sriracha with apricot preserves. While that statement sounds like I created a bogus sex ad on Craigslist, then bopped the red rooster on its head when it showed up, it’s actually less creepy than that.  Search the internet for “wouldn’t it be cool if” and you’ll find all kinds of video for dumb ideas gone wrong. Sift through video after video of ER trips in their infancy, however, and you can find some good ideas that turned out pretty well. This is one of those times.

I was low on my traditional go-to’s for grilling chicken. A frantic hunt through the fridge prior to guests arriving got me thinking, however. First off, the green poupon behind the questionable pork had to go. Second, why not mix up the Sriracha and some apricot preserves as a glaze? I was pretty sure neither had reached expiration, so I went for it. The result was a sweet, tangy glaze punctuated by Asian fire. I’m certainly making it again.
