1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
12 chicken wings
Oil for deep frying

For marinade

2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning

Honey Sriracha sauce

1 cup sriracha
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tablespoon chopped ginger
2 tablespoon scallion

Directions:

Whisk together buttermilk, pepper, salt and Old Bay seasoning in a bowl. Add the chicken, coat with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for one hour.

In a small bowl mix together the flour, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, paprika, onion and salt. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and coat the chicken with the flour mixture until they are evenly coated. Put it in a container and refrigerate for one hour.
