Spicy Cajun Chicken Wings Recipe

Chicken wing lovers can unite over these Cajun-spiced crispy wings caramelized in a sweet BBQ sauce and spicy sriracha sauce. Whether you’re making wings for a party, game day, or just to have for dinner, they’re a healthy and tasty alternative to store-bought chicken wings.

These wings are coated in Cajun spices, lathered in sweet and spicy sauces, then quickly broiled for a delightful nibble.

Spicy Cajun Chicken Wings

The Cajun spices bring heat and warmth, just like you’ve taken a quick trip to a New Orleans restaurant. If you don’t have a Cajun spice blend, make your own from oregano, cayenne pepper, onion powder, black pepper and paprika, or use the Creole recipe found in the ingredient list here.  

Then whip up your own Paleo sriracha sauce and BBQ sauce. Have leftover sauce? Just store it in the refrigerator and use it within a week or so.
