Let’s be completely honest here: wings are not my favorite thing to eat. Unlike my husband, who can eat a couple dozen in one sitting, I can barely eat ONE single wing.

But I met these Honey Glazed Cilantro Lime Wings, and everything changed.

Sticky-sweet wings, with one of my favorite herbs (cilantro, duh!) and a squeeze of fresh lime juice… these wings are to die for.

Honey Glazed Cilantro Lime Wings - the perfect hand-held appetizer!

A squeeze of lime brings out the best in almost every dish, and these wings have the lime! They are just what you need for your game day party. Serve them with fresh lime wedges and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro, and your guests won’t be able to stop licking their fingers.

I seasoned the wings with powered cilantro lime seasoning before baking them, which really kicked them into high gear.  If you can’t find a similar seasoning, just use salt and pepper. Or find the seasoning online at sources like American Kitchen Cookware, or grab the Chile Margarita spice rub from Spiceologist. Either way, you’re sure to love the sticky honey glaze that coats these wings, the tart burst of fresh lime, and the clean flavor of cilantro!

Honey Glazed Cilantro Lime Wings are the perfect hand-held appetizer or game day snack!

I hope you will make these honey glazed cilantro lime wings. Here’s the recipe!
