I found this recipe for Spicy Lime and Honey wings on Joelen’s Blog. If I lived in the same town as Joelen, I am sure I would find a way to invite Ria and myself over.
We modified the recipe a little bit and loved it. Here’s our adaptation of her adaptation of a Guy Fieri recipe. The toughest part is juicing the limes. If in a pinch (as most moms sometimes are), feel free to use the pre-juiced limes/lemons available at the store. Not ideal but it works to speed things up. You can broil the wings vs. using the grill as well. Of course, the chili can be omitted or reduced to make it kid-friendly.
Fire up the grill and get those fingers messy!
Icky Sticky Chicken Wings
3 pounds chicken wings (I used only drummettes – both hubby and kid prefer)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp grated lime zest
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp Sriracha sauce (optional or reduce amount)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
*If you don’t have a grill, you can use a grill pan indoors, or broil on high heat frequently turning over to get even char on the wings.
