  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil (vegetable, canola, take your pick)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's original hot sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet with nonstick foil. Place two wire racks (like wire cooling racks, the kind you use for cookies etc) on top of the foil.

  2. Place chicken wings in a large bowl. Drizzle with the oil and toss to coat. Place in a single layer on the wire racks (on top of baking sheet), sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake for 30-40 minutes, turning once half way through, til crispy and golden.

  3. While chicken wings are baking, prepare the sauce. Combine butter, hot sauce, cilantro, garlic, lime zest and juice, brown sugar, honey, and salt and pepper to a medium sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 10-15 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl whisk together cold water and corn starch. Stir mixture into the sauce until thickened. Remove from heat.

  5. When chicken wings are done, toss in the sauce, then serve.
