Chili Lime Chicken Wings. These BAKED chicken wings are simple to make and loaded with flavor thanks to a mixture of chili sauce and fresh lime juice and zest. The skin is so crispy on these you won't believe they aren't fried!
Preheat oven to 450. Line large baking sheet with foil and place wire rack on top. Set aside.
Dry chicken wings and drumettes with paper towels. Get the chicken as dry as possible.
Add baking powder, salt and pepper to a large bowl, mix together. Add the chicken and coat the chicken in the baking powder mixture.
Lay the chicken on the baking sheet on top of the wire rack, make sure the chicken is not touching.
Bake chicken for 20 minutes. Flip the chicken over using tongs or forks and bake again for 15 more minutes.
While the chicken is baking, prepare the sauce. Combine the chili garlic sauce, honey, melted butter, and lime juice and zest in a small bowl. Stir together. If the butter won't mix, heat the sauce in microwave or in a saucepan briefly just until combined.
After the chicken has baked, remove from the oven, brush with the sauce.
Cook the chicken for an additional 15 minutes with the sauce on. Remove from the oven and serve.
