Ingredients

Chicken Wings:

  • 4 pounds chicken wings and drums , sometimes seen as “drumettes”
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Jalapeno Lime Sauce:

  • ½ cup butter , melted
  • 1 jalapeno , seeded and finely minced
  • 2 limes , zested and juiced
  • ¼ cup honey

Garish:

  • Additional jalapeno slices
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Cilantro , minced

Instructions

  • If time permits, prepare chicken wings and drums by rinsing, patting dry and allowing to sit in the refrigerator uncovered. This will help get the skin nice and crispy. Place in the fridge for 1-24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a rimmed baking sheet with a small amount of cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine onion powder, garlic powder, fine sea salt and pepper. Toss with chicken and spread in an even layer onto rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, jalapeno, lime zest, lime juice and honey. Whisk well. Toss with chicken.
  • Return entire mixture back to the rimmed baking sheet and increase oven temperature to high broil. Watch closely and broil only until chicken start to brown. Remove.
  • If desired, garnish with additional jalapeno slices, minced cilantro and cayenne pepper. Serve immediately.
