Chili Lime Yuzu Chicken Wings


From time to time, we enjoy a simple chicken wing dish that does not require too much prep time.  For those times, our go-to recipe hands down is our Chili & Lime Chicken Wings. 

It posses the right balance of all flavors to have a very addictive quality about it.  You can also add an optional Yuzu juice to bring a certain Asian taste profile which adds a nice fusion twist to the dish! 

What can you say to a recipe that gives you plenty of chicken oils, protein and tastes delicious as well!  I say it is definitely worth a try!

Prepping Time 10M

Cooking Time 20M

Total Time 30M

Net Carb/Serv ~1g

Servings 2-3

Ingredients

  • 10-15 Wings & Drumettes
  • 3 tbsp Swerve/Monkfruit
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 2 Garlic Clove
  • 2 tbs Salt
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Red Pepper (Cheyenne Pepper / Togarashi)
  • 1 tsp Lime/Lemon Zest (organic if possible since we are zesting)
  • 1 tsp Yuzu (optional)

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) In a small stove top pot, add Swerve/Monkfruit and water, bring to boil on medium-low heat.  Should take around 1-2 minutes.  Once boiling, remove from heat and set aside.  This is our simple syrup.

3) Grind garlic with a grinder or a garlic press.  Put into a mixing bowl.

4) Zest lemon with a grinder and add to mixing bowl (if you are in a hurry, you can use the juices from the lemon, but it will have less flavor and more carbs).

5) Add chili pepper, salt, olive oil, Yuzu juice and simple syrup from step 2).  Mix well.  Note – the Yuzu is optional, but we recommend using it to add an Asian taste profile.

6) Add chicken into mixing bowl and toss well.  Line oven tray with aluminum foil and spray/coat with cooking oil.  Line chicken on a tray and make sure they are not touching one another.

7) Place oven on broil and rearrange rack to be around 6-8″ from the heating element (on our oven, it is the 2nd slot from the top).  Place the tray in the CENTER of the oven and broil chicken for 8-10 minutes or until browned.

8) Once browned, flip chicken and broil for additional 8-10 minutes or until browned.  If the chicken is browning too quickly, lower the tray to rack below.

9) Transfer to a serving plate.
