Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings with Cilantro Sriracha Blue Cheese Sauce

This mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar and Sambal sauce creates tangy marinade for the small chicken wings and drums. Be sure to marinate for 24 hours and grill on a very hot grill to char the chicken. The sauce is easy to make with Marie’s Chunky Blue Cheese dressing. Just add Sriracha and chopped cilantro.


  • 2-3 pounds of small chicken wings and drumsticks
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup Sambal Oelek Sauce
  • 1 large jar of Marie’s Extra Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons of Sriracha Sauce
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Making It

  • Over high heat, place a sauce pan with the sugar, soy and Sambal sauce, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook down for 10 minutes. Let cool in the refrigerator and then mix with the chicken, put in a gallon ziplock bag and let marinate for 24 hours.
  • Take the jar of dressing in a large bowl, mix in the cilantro and Sriracha and set aside.
  • Brush canola oil on the grill and turn 2/3 on high and leave the other side off, shut the lid and let heat up for 15 minutes, grill the chicken for 2-3 minutes a side (unless you get the larger chicken drums which can take 7-10 minutes. Finish off on indirect heat with lid closed for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with sauce.
