  1. In a bowl, combine sour cream, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Stir well, taste for seasonings, cover, and refrigerate to allow flavors to mature.
  3. Place wings in a large bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together apricot preserves, sriracha sauce, honey, garlic, sesame oil, and salt; reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce to glaze wings during cooking and pour the rest over the chicken wings.
  5. Toss wings well to coat in sauce, then cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

  9. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees; brush wings with reserved sauce, and cook 6 minutes.
