    1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
    1 teaspoon Sugar
    Juice of 2 Limes
    1/2 cup Olive Oil
    3 pounds Chicken Wings
    For the Marinade: A day ahead of time, combine all marinade ingredients and add the wings, tossing to evenly coat. Place them in a gallon sized bag and refrigerate.

    Spread the wings out on a baking tray, with any liquid remaining from the marinade, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until just about cooked through. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • 4
    1/2 cup Pureed Chipotle in Adobo
    2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar 
    2 tablespoons Honey 
    3 tablespoons Butter
    Zest of 1 Lime 
    1/2 teaspoons Salt 
    For the Wing Sauce: In the meantime, make the wing sauce by placing a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add all of the ingredients and whisk occasionally until the butter has melted then taste and season with salt, and more honey if desired. Set aside until ready to use.

    Add the wings to the hot oil, deep frying until golden and crispy about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove them onto some paper towels and season them with salt. 
  • 6
    1/2 cup Cilantro Leaves
    Place fried wings into a bowl; pour the sauce over the top, then mix to evenly coat all of the wings. Add in the cilantro leaves, tossing one more time. Serve with your favorite accompaniments.

    Helpful Tip:
    1. Roasting and then frying the wings adds extra crunch, while grilling the wings lightens the recipe.
