Who doesn’t loves chicken wings? We all do! Served as an appetizer at every restaurant, party or gatherings, they are a perfect crowd pleaser. I have been a fan of chicken wings ever since I tasted it. They are my favorite appetizer whenever we go to any restaurant for lunch or dinner. They can be marinated and glazed with any sauce you like or keep it as simple as you want with just salt, pepper, and lime juice, they taste just delicious.
I always prefer baked wings over deep fried chicken wings. This eliminates the cleaning of extra dishes, the mess created by oil over the kitchen counter, the smell of oil created by deep frying all over you and inside your home. And above all, perfectly soft and tender from inside and crispy from outside plate of chicken wings. This is a perfect crowd pleaser with an easy recipe and which requires little work from you.
These Cilantro Lime chicken wings are full of flavors and taste delicious. I tried my best to keep the ingredients as simple as I could. These ingredients are very easily available in your kitchen. For preparing these chicken wings you can use any chicken pieces if you do not get the wings packet at the store. The only thing you need to keep in mind is, increase or decrease the baking time depending on the size of the chicken pieces. If you end with the glaze leftover then use them up while baking or grilling the chicken breast or over the baked Tilapia fillet.
This is a must-try recipe for all the chicken wings lover out there. Whenever you find a chicken wings packet at the store, just grab one and prepare this delicious wings at home. Serve these chicken wings celery stick, baked veggies, a dip of your choice, and your favorite drink.
