Spicy Honey Lime Baked Chicken Wings

Looking for seriously the BEST ever chicken wings for the Super Bowl this weekend?! These delicious, sticky, amazing wings will blow you away with how good they are. Best part- they’re baked which makes it easier and healthier! Well, until you put the hot sauce on them that is.

Ingredients

2 pounds chicken wings
Oil
Salt
Pepper
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
1 cup hot sauce (I prefer Franks Hot Sauce)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons honey
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 3 limes
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F
In a bowl add the chicken wings. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix until all of the wings are coated completely
Line a sheet tray with aluminum foil and add a cooking cooling rack on top. Add the chicken wings to the top and put into the oven
Bake for 35-40 minutes, taking the wings out halfway and flipping them
In a saucepan over medium high heat melt the butter. To the butter add the hot sauce, minced garlic, brown sugar, honey, lime zest, lime juice, and chopped fresh cilantro. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes
After 10 minutes take the sauce off of the heat
In a small bowl mix together the 2 tablespoons cold water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add the cornstarch slurry into the sauce and stir to combine completely
Once the wings are cooked put them into a bowl and add as much of the sauce as you’d like
Serve hot with extra dipping sauce on the side! Happy Super Bowl!

Notes

This recipe makes more sauce than the 2 pounds of wings need! You can coat up to a few lbs of wings with this delicious sauce
