What is Chili Lime Chicken Wings?

A wet rub blend of yuzu (or lemon), cheyenne pepper, monk fruit erythritol, garlic, is mixed with chicken wings then broiled in the oven until tender.  A perfect snack or light meal when following a keto lifestyle.

How do you bake crispy chicken wings in the oven?

Place chicken wings in the center of the oven and broil chicken for 10 minutes or until browned, then flip chicken and broil for an additional 10 minutes.

The secret is then to move the rack to the top and crisp it for 2-3 minutes.

How do you make the chili lime marinade?

Mix yuzu or lemon juice, cayenne pepper, monkfruit erythritol, garlic, and olive oil and toss in chicken wings until evenly coated.

Can I air fry chicken wings instead of using an oven?

Yes!  You can air fry chicken wings at 360F for about 20 minutes flipping once in between.

Should I use fresh or frozen chicken wings?

I always try to use fresh chicken wings but to be honest, using frozen is so much more convenient.  Just defrost when we are in the mood for chicken wings.

But both fresh and frozen work well for this recipe.

Tips and tricks for making Chili Lime Chicken Wings?

  • Marinade chicken overnight for more flavor.
  • For crispy wings, move the chicken wings closer to the top of the oven for a few minutes.
  • Air frying works very well for this recipe as well.  360 F for 20 minutes flipping once in between
  • Dip in ranch or blue cheese and eat with a side of celery or carrots.
