Chile-Lime Chicken Wings
Citrus and spice balance the flavors of this spicy and flavorful wing recipe from Taste of Home.
- 2 1/2 Pounds whole chicken wings
- 1 Cup maple syrup
- 2/3 Cups chile sauce
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 Cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Teaspoons salt
- 2 Teaspoons paprika
- 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
- Oil, for frying
Cut the wings into 3 sections and discard the wing tips. In a large saucepan, combine the syrup, chile sauce, lime juice, and mustard. Bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is reduced to about 1 cup.
Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika, and pepper, add the wings a few at a time, and shake to coat.
In a skillet or deep-fryer, heat enough oil to 375 degrees. Fry the wings, a few at a time, for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Transfer the wings to a large bowl and add the sauce mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
