Honey Lime Hot Wings

Skip the flour, skip the deep fryer. Go straight to the oven with these tasty hot wings.

It’s a misnomer that chicken wings are unhealthy. Traditionally they are dredged in flour and dunked into a deep fryer to make the crispiest chicken. That’s just not required. Baking at a high temperature achieves the same effect.

A trifecta of honey, lime and garlic infuses these wings as they bake. The chicken stays tender and you could even skip the sauce entirely.

Marinate the chicken overnight for the lime and garlic flavors to really come through. Just make sure to marinade for at least 30 minutes. Chicken needs a little help to keep it tender.

I use a combination of Frank’s Red Hot and Cholula Chili Garlic Hot Sauce to achieve a powerful garlic kick. We’re big garlic fans in my house (and may over use it).  Any hot sauce can be used. Just make sure it is gluten free. Take a look at this list for confirmation.

Enjoy!
